I am so worried about difficult child. Both Monday and Tuesday he called, sent out of classes. (trouble with all three morning classes) Principal called me on speaker phone with difficult child and program director in the room. I asked her if she had a few minutes I could be there in five. When I got to school, they told me that difficult child wanted to confront his teachers to tell them how he feels, how unfair he is being treated.(very tough if you ask me). They set that up for the afternoon. After going over how he feels, I asked him to go to lunch. I told the two in the room how upset he feels. He did say infront of all that he would be HAPPY to be suspended, or referral, whatever as long as ALL others doing the same would recieve the same consequence. I relayed the story my neighbor said about how the boy at her school gets suspended no matter what. Principal didn't say anything. I said it just is not right that no matter how hard he tries, no matter how well, and how far he has come, he will always face a battle. I was told he gets along with everyone. There are no behavior issues, that it is just his age and trying to find his "nitch". I told the principal I am ready to keep him home in the mornings and just send him for afternoon. Both nights this week difficult child came home and just stared at the walls. Didn't eat, didn't talk, just stared with tears in his eyes. He has dark circles under both eyes. Worse on Monday, thought maybe he was crying but was told no he wasn't. He gets enought sleep. Principal pointed out his eye blinking. Very deliberate. Noticed more so when talking of school. Last night he said how the kids all say stuff to him about using the computer and such. He said if only they could be him for one day they would know. He said he had "nothing to look forward to". We felt so bad for him There is nothing I can do. This should be a good time of his life, and he is so very sad. His 13th birthday is in two weeks and I bet he will spend it alone. Principal did call after difficult child met with two of the three teachers. She said he did very good.(program director was with him) I was told one teacher said she was sorry he felt that way and she didn't realize it. She would try to be more aware. The other was more aggressive towards him. One more for him to confront today. My heart aches to see him so sad. He is so smart, wants so much to just fit in. I am so worried that he sees "nothing to look forward to". It just shouldn't be this hard.
