“Is that your professional speculation?” I thought to myself on the way to pick my son up from school because he punched a classmate in the stomach. “He seems tired, like he was up late last night.” Well ‘Principal Judgey’, he had 11 hours of sleep, that seems like enough to me. “Unfortunately it was the same boy your son bit 2 weeks ago.” Yes, the same boy who was his best friend for most of the year. I try to explain how their relationship has been strained and how my son, who is 4, is having trouble with his friends. She cuts me short, says my son just lashed out unprovoked.
This behaviour is only happening at school and only with the same boy. Now I’m not a professional, but I think they could be related. My son is not perfect, neither is his behaviour or his parents. We are doing our best to help him handle his emotions, but we are not at school with him. Sending him home because you don’t want to deal with him is not the answer. I was under the impression that we were suppose to be team. Set aside your judgements and assumptions and lets work together to resolve this issue.
