It’s a daily struggle for both my son and I. My frustration is with the teachers that don’t get it. I constantly get he will just sit there all period, I already told him numerous times what to do, or he doesn’t want to do the work. I feel like I am just screaming at the top of my lungs and no one hears me. They always ask have you tried medication? It’s such a touchy subject and I feel they want him medicated so they don’t have to deal with him. He is so smart and funny but suffers from anxiety and self esteem issues. Breaks my heart!! I too wonder if he will be able to survive without me breathing down his neck about anything and everything. I hope one day he appreciates how hard I fight for him and doesn’t resent me. I want him to be happy and not hate school.
