In about an hour I will be leaving work and attending my son's annual IEP. Normally I dread difficult child's IEP's but easy child's aren't so bad. He is typically a good student with just a few social/emotional issues. This meeting will be different. He has been struggling academically since his surgery 5 weeks ago. My former honor roll kid is now getting 3 F's and it's too late in the quarter for him to make up the work. I dread going to this meeting. I am sitting at my desk right now drinking my tension tamer tea and trying to calm myself down. I just hate hearing so much negative. Hopefully there will be some positive in the mix, and we can all come up with a solution on how to get my son motivated. Wish me luck.
