I'm not even sure how or what to ask for in the way of advice. But the situation is critical and help is needed. My 30 year old daughter and son in law have a beautiful and very intelligent 6 year old that they have placed upon a stone alter. From the moment they hit public school starting with preschool, there were problems. My son is energetic, smarter than the rest, he's bored, he's trying to "help" the other children, he is speaking back to the teachers, he won't stay seated, he won't stay quiet, but no matter what the teachers, principal or administrater says, it is always someone else's fault. The thing is, he never acts this way with his grandfather and me because we will not tolerate it. But the moment parents show up, it's like a different child has hatched. Now they have decided that they want him to go to the Catholic school associated with the church we go too. They are not Catholic and actually look down on religion in general. But they have seen they type of students that Catholic schools produce and I guess think they will magically transform him. I have spoken to her often, I have spoken with my son in law, however since he tends to run a little on the spineless side whatever my daughter decides is what what happens. Help me. Please, my grandson hangs in the balance of two worlds. He has been isolated at school, he sits alone, he eats alone, he isn't allowed to participate in reading time, nor will he be allowed to participate in the christmas program because of his talking and lack of following direction. This is not helpful, this is not the way to teach him, but I don't know how or a better way. So I'm asking those mothers out there that successfully home school, help me, help my grandson and help me help my daughter.
