Its like a breath of fresh air.
Feeling unsure at times, confused, failed, defeated, a bad mother. Yet my children are so very intelligent, creative and loving. Change has never been a good thing for them. Over the years moving 3 times in their short lives has been hard on them, hard on all of us, beginning school a welcomed new part of their lives but also another scary change.
Our children thrive on routine, organization, stimulation, and downtime. Our children are like all other kids, however as we are learning need a more one on one approach. The breath of fresh air, hearing from a Health Care Professional that this is so very common in so many boys (after all we all know boys and girls have very different ways of learning). Both our kids love to learn, are very expressive, sensitive and very appreciative of not so much the things in their life but the people and experiences in their lives.
After speaking to the Doctor I came out feeling a sense of pride that I HAVE been doing things right, I am a great mother, my son is a very smart child (which of course I knew) but he just may need more one on one time. I am lucky, we are lucky that the teachers our son has had over the past years have been wonderful and I so very much appreciate the open communication between them and us, even though at times I have cringed when answering the phone to hear about his “energy filled day”.
