Lately easy child has been lagging in homework assignments for Math and English so I was ordered to attend a teacher's meeting yesterday with my son. Four of his teachers were there, including his math teacher, English teacher, science teacher, and study skills teacher. The Math and English teachers are female and to put it bluntly, cold hearted b***hes. My son's science teacher had nothing but great things to say about him and his work habits. His study skills teacher didn't really say much (he is also easy child's case carrier,) but his Math and English teachers were brutal. First off I got accused of being a lazy mom who has let my son have a free ride for years without any homework. Nothing could be further from the truth. Truth be told, I have been having easy child do his work before school when I drop him off because he is at his best in the mornings and his ADHD medications have kicked in. easy child prefers to do it in the morning as well, claiming he is too tired by the end of the day. For the past two weeks easy child has suddenly been slacking and not completing his work. I got the blame for it. They both actually yelled at me. Told me there is no reason why easy child can't do his work in the afternoon. Poor easy child/difficult child got an earful too. All these two teachers did was say how AWESOME their other students are, and how he is the ONLY one they have problems with. They were rapid firing questions at him and demanding answers. First off easy child is autistic and incredibly, painfully shy with adults. He couldn't utter a word yesterday as they were berating him and demanding answers. My son was near tears and all he could manage to do was shrug his shoulders. He got yelled at for not answering. When I tried to stick up for him, his English teacher told me to stop babying him and stop using his disorders as an excuse. I was speechless. You all know how anxious I get when other people are upset at me. I was in a major panic attack the whole hour I was there. Bottom line is they say easy child won't graduate unless he completely turns around. I am hoping the meeting was enough to get easy child more motivated. I am going to have him work on some homework after I get off work but it won't be easy. I am just upset about the whole way this was handled. No wonder my son says he can't stand those teachers. He actually asked me if he could transfer schools because he dislikes them so much. I told him to hold on cause we have another three months of this then we are outta there!
