I have an important question… How long?
How long will you tolerate less than acceptable for you child?
How long will you allow excuses and promises that haven’t been delivered?
How long will you ignore situations that eat at you, leaving a bad taste in your mouth?
How long will you go against your better judgment?
I have a meeting on Friday with a District administrator in hopes of improving my son’s third grade experience. There is a part of me that dreads this meeting and another side that welcomes the opportunity. I am gathering resources and talking to experts. It feels as though I am preparing for battle.
Last week, was a particularly challenging week. My son was made to feel small and hopeless and invisible.
Once the school found out that I had requested this meeting, the wall was reinforced and built even higher. Like me, it seems that they are gathering troops. He seems to pay for their defensiveness with even more focus directed to his struggles.
No one should have to fight this hard during the holiday season, but we have fought for our child in the presence of Christmas trees before. If I could postpone this sit down until 2014 I would, but I can’t.
It has been long enough!
