Elliott is too distressed to sleep

      No Comments on Elliott is too distressed to sleep

Elliott and I are having a campout in the living room tonight. He’s been unable to sleep, and so I thought maybe spending some time together would help me get to the bottom of what’s been causing him so much distress.

I hate seeing him struggling, and Elliott doesn’t always like to open up. He’s much like Emmett in the sense that he doesn’t do well when it comes to expressing how he’s feeling.

Anyway, we spent quite some time playing in our Minecraft Realm together. He didn’t tell me anything I didn’t already know, but much of his distress is related to school. I know that much, but I’m not sure how to help him figure this out.

Lizze and I will be meeting with Dr. Pattie next week and discussing how best to handle all this school-related crap. We need to decide if we seriously will be considering homeschooling or if we can come up with a better option. If we seriously need to look at homeschooling, would it be this year or next?

Elliott shows no signs of falling asleep, and I’m exhausted beyond all belief.

I’m doing my best to stay awake until he falls asleep, but I’m not sure this is a battle I can win..
