Today was a bit of a frustrating day--my son's teacher called to let me know that he is not coming to class prepared. He has a detention tomorrow, too.
I have been talking to his Science teacher at least once a week and he seems to think Brian is doing great. Unfortunately his Math teacher doesn't think so and she is the lead teacher so I have nothing to do except deal with it!!!!!!
I am so tired of dealing with his crap and he is 11 years old!!!! How much longer do I have to follow him around and hold his hand while he does his homework?! Is there going to be a time when I won't have to worry when the phone rings that it will be the teacher again?
Also, my ex-husband seems to just KNOW when there are problems and he swoops in and tries to make it better. I get so mad that he doesn't take notice of school until there are problems and then he tries to take over and fix it all. Last year he had a teacher who would call his Dad instead of calling me when Brian forgot something so being that Brian lives with me, his stuff wouldn't get done until either he went to his Dad's and got bombarded with assignments or his Dad would call and yell at him about it. I didn't get along with that teacher so she did all that she could to partner with him. This weekend while Brian was at his Dad's house he rearranged his backpack and decided on a new "system" for Brian's homework. Obviously it didn't work since he got a detention!!!!!!
Last year I was so stressed out for the whole year and this year I refuse to be like that! I don't want to be overweight anymore and I need to eliminate anything that causes me to be frustrated like I was last year. I sat down and prayed to God to give me the strength and courage to get past this and all little speed bumps in my efforts. I WILL lose this weight! Thanks for listening to my rants!
