Meeting at the School

It is never fun to have an hour long meeting including the principal, two teachers, and the school psychologist when the subject of the meeting is “How do we help your child cope with school in a way that does not place a huge burden on already overburdened school staff.” Short term interventions are still to be devised. Long term plans (already in process) include meetings with psychiatric professionals and weekly therapy for awhile. At some point I may outline some of these interventions because the shape of them might be useful to others. Right now it all feels a bit raw and I’m tired of crying.

Not fun at all. Just in case you were wondering.

  1. I empathize. Ah, to have less of the not-fun to go with the joys. Price of admission to human life, per the Buddhic traditions. Blessings to you and yours, and may this too resolve for the best.

  2. I have been in a universe that looks somewhat like yours. All I can say is what you know…one faltering step in front of the other.

    My son ended up in a different school with more resources. After two years, when he played the djembe at his elementary school graduation without throwing a fit, I cried harder for his success than I did for our shared failures two years ago.

    Hugs and prayers to you as a family.
