This photo was taken just over three years ago, making him four years old. It was a lot easier then in a lot of ways. He hadn’t started school!
What is it about school that’s so problematic for him, and consequently for me? What is it about schools that see suspension as the only answer to behavioural problems?
I have so many questions and unfortunately there’s no easy answer. We need time. I need to become more in the school’s face to try and get them to help my boy, not just punish him when things go bad.
I want to work with the school but perhaps it’s better for him to make a fresh start elsewhere? I don’t bloody know!
