I'm waiting for a call from the school at 1:30. There is a reason why we homeschooled our ds starting in K. I knew I'd be getting calls from the school. I was tired of fighting with him, so decided to send him full-time for 8th grade this year. He had taken choir and art so I thought we'd be good. Now, I'm waiting for my call from the school. She tried calling at 9am, but my phone was turned down.

 

No advice needed. My stomach hurts :crying: I hope I don't cry on the phone.

Hugs. I know that feeling. Know that they will appreciate dealing with a caring mom like you, given some of the other parents they deal with. Hugs.

I understand how you feel. The first week of school was killer because I was reminded how exhausting it is to have that twisting in your stomach just waiting for a call all day every day. :::hugs and prayers:::

He's apparently been yelling at his Cross Country coaches, and telling them they are wrong. He's also been complaining about the workouts, and refusing to do them. The kid ran all summer long! What the heck?! He likes distance at his own pace, while the MS kids run 2 miles, and faster than he wants.

 

He wants to be the best, but doesn't want to work for it. And, gets mad when it doesn't happen. I've been trying to teach him that you can't be the best without hard work, and realistically there is always going to be someone better, so be humble too.

 

I told her to send him home from practice if he has a bad attitude, and not to let him run at the meet on Monday. She didn't want to do that, and is giving him a chance today to change his tune. She thought it would be hard since Monday is their only home meet. I told her I'm fine with him not running. I won't be mad at them.

 

I have to talk to him, but am working tonight. Probably a good thing. I can calm down.

 

She said he was making other kids uncomfortable with his yelling at the coaches, and they've never had this happen before.

 

So frustrated with this kid :(

Thanks for the hugs :crying:  I just feel like it is always something with him. Usually the same something. He never wants to listen, and take advice. I'm not saying that I love criticism, no one does. His temper is what gets him. He's got to get a handle on it.

:grouphug:

Does the school or will your insurance cover anger management counselling? One of my older male cousin had anger management issues and was nearly charged with assault (there was obvious knowing provocation/baiting by the other person).

I hope he can work things out so he can run on Monday. Also, if he's not aware, I might mention that the other kids were uncomfortable. He might be more swayed by that than the coaches' comments.

And I'd just let him believe the coach is wrong. You won't sway him not to believe that. Just work on how to handle it when the coach is wrong, rather than arguing the coach is right. Trust me.

An excellent life skill.
