I think - he came home from school yesterday and asked me to set-up a time to meet with his friends to talk with them. They keep "bugging" him and "nobody" is doing anything about it. This has been going on for some time and I've just let it lie until he had a specific request. The school does try; but they are made up of difficult children. I spent most of last year teaching at his school (just to try to keep him in school). I received an email from the principal. He is excited and has told all his friends about me coming in. Now - I have no clue what I am going to say or "teach" or even how I'm going to get long lunches again once or twice a week for the next few months; but I'll figure it out. I'm so proud that he came and asked for specific help rather than just lashing out at others. easy child also had a very good week, he is learning the difference between doing OK at school and doing an awesome job! (not based upon grades, but on how hard you really try to learn something).
