My difficult child just can't seem to function in school in December. We have 9 weeks tests before the holidays and between tests and the general Christmas excitement, he is on anxiety overload. Today, he knocked his desk over. He is practically failing all of his exams (very smart...in gifted classes) and just can't seem to function in school during this time of the year. I am so glad that today was our last day of school for 2 weeks. He just got out of the hospital about 10 days ago, and he is alot better than he was, but this seems to be developing into a yearly thing.
