Anyway, it’s already not looking good for school in the morning. He’s had 2 panic attacks this evening and it’s been exhausting for both him and I. I can’t begin to imagine how he’s feeling.
There are 2 options we’re looking at with school right now. The first is pretty simple. I could stay at the school with Emmett. Not sure if that would help but I know for sure it would make work nearly impossible. I’m absolutely willing to do it if it’s what he needs. I’ll just find a way to make it work.
The second option is at home instruction. Basically, a teacher would come to the house to work with him a few days a week. He would be tested and do the same work he would in the classroom, without the stress of the classroom. This would again be a temporary solution and not a fix.
We’ve got to help Emmett find or develop the tools needed to deal with the things in his life. That’s going to take some time.
I’m not going to lie. I’m absolutely overwhelmed right now and I’m basically on my own. I can’t fight every battle and I’m spread so thin as it is. The reality is that when you’re a parent, you do what you have to for your kids. I’m not angry but I am worried.
With any luck, we’ll get something figured out this week.
