School woes

I posted in my Living in Tx blog yesterday about some issues TC is having this year at school. Well,the first day of school went great!! He got a happy gram and was all smiles.

Day 2 was some fussing and after I picked him up he told me he had to go to the thinking chair for his behavior.
Some of it was my fault.
I tried to pack him something different in his lunch and he had a huge meltdown at lunchtime.
This behavior continued throughout the day which resulted in him getting into trouble.

Day 3 started off with a nosebleed on the way to school and there was a lot of whining and after school,so I took him to the calendar and had him mark off the days he had attended school this week. I circled Thurs. and Fri. and told him that he only has 2 days left for this week.

Yesterday morning, Thursday, he was so upset and did not want to go to school, and we had a long conversation about how he has to go to school and I told him it is up to him to make it a good day. He can be gripey and mad, or he can go to school, do a good job, and have a good day!
On the way to school he told me that he has to work so hard. And basically TC is lazy when it comes to school work so of course he does not want to do the work. And I know he struggles so I tried to give him a pep talk.He learned how to spell red yesterday and he came home and sang us a song. And everything was good.


This morning he was fine, he got dressed and there was no whining.
The good thing is it is Friday.
The bad thing is we have to do this all over again on Monday.

3rd grade

My kiddoes started school on Monday. TC did well, I was sort of surprised, but TC tends to surprise me!
Yesterday he got in trouble for his behavior and had to go to the thinking chair. And this morning he had a nosebleed on the way to school.
So we have had some rocky moments but 2 more days til' the weekend!

One day at a time!

I am so mad about what happened today

Today I took the kids swimming at a friend's community pool.
TC is very friendly and will approach kids.
Three girls and one boy were playing a game where they pushed one another in the pool and the last one standing was the winner.
I watched closely as TC played along. He went up to a small girl to push her and I told him not to, she was too little and he could hurt her.
Next thing I see was the boy going up to TC and grabbing his hands and pushing him hard into the water.
As TC came up, he was upset, I could tell from his expression.
I called him over to ask was he okay and he said, No his hand hurt where the boy pushed him.
I told him to not play with those kids anymore.

Later on, TC was standing in front of a boy (wanting to play) and the boy said, "You can't play with me, you are too fat!" I called TC over and told him LOUDLY because I have a big he didn't want to play with that kid anyways because that kid was being mean. I told the kid "You don't have to call him fat, he knows he is big but you don't have to treat him badly."
The Mom was right by the kid and ignored everything til' I spoke to her son.
She then called him over and told him that was rude.
No apology or anything.
I was pissed.

As we were leaving, approximately an hour later, the kid hollered out, "Sorry!" And I told Tc to tell him, "Okay."

My problem is why are kids so mean and why don't parents watch them? It is NOT OKAY to treat someone like they are a piece of crap because they are overweight, it just is NOT!!
