Allearia Posted March 7, 2012 Share Posted March 7, 2012 I got an email from one of my ds7's teachers basically saying that his behavior was so terrible that I needed to be prepared to take him out and that they were going to refer us to another teacher who also had counseling experience if it continued. The thing is, I was there the entire time 7 feet away and did not see any of this, which they said was basically banging and playing with the footstool. What I saw was him trying to arrange the footstool and sit on his hands as asked so he could listen. I would have expected this email if he was throwing a tantrum, oppositional, not wanting to be there. He loves this activity and is very good at it and they got through the entire lesson in what appeared to me to be a very good session. I am so angry and hurt on his behalf, I thought she loved having him as a student, she always gave us extra materials for him and spent a lot of time. We had resolved an issue he had of getting upset and not listYening and I thought he was doing beautifully. I want to try to continue with the teacher as I had thought before this it was the perfect situation,and also he and his brother, who has the same teacher, would be very hurt. When we had the other (seemingly very minor) issue, I was the first to bring it up, have a solution, and work with him on it, and I am definitely not one to think my kid is an angel and ignore his faults. If you have been in this situation, can I repair this? Should I try, or should we stop and find someone else? I am heartbroken and feel betrayed and cried for hours. I did respond and say we would work on being more still at lessons, but when I was talking about this with ds and working on it he was trying not to cry :( I don't know for sure if I can get over this. I know everyone is different, but I would really like to hear if this relationship can be repaired or if we should just move on. Thanks for listening, I just really don't have anyone to talk to about this besides Dh. Maybe I am just venting, I don't know. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
