The boys don’t have school today. I believe it’s a service day but I called and spoke site Gavin’s teacher anyway. The sooner we all get on the same page, the better.
I told her what was going on and what we were being told by Gavin.
I also explained exactly what we had told Gavin about reading and why. She confirmed that Gavin said he wasn’t allowed to read anything but that she figured there was more to the story.
Honestly, I’m not sure she really believed me and is taking this seriously.
I realize that this is something that most people will find hard to accept. Who wants to think that a child is capable of these things? I certainly know that I struggle with this, so I can see why others with no experience, find this hard to believe.
The problem is that unless we are all on the same page, we are going to be played against each other.
Eventually, everyone catches on but it’s like they have to catch him doing this themselves before it clicks. I suppose it’s human nature to want to give a child the benefit of the doubt but in situations like this, the sooner we’re all in sync, the better we are equipped to keep everything in check.
I really not sure where we stand at this point but I tried. Sometimes people have to learn the hard way before they recognize what’s going on.
