I had had irks with the school and the system for a number of years and had been very vocal with them about it .. but in all honesty they were trying to make my son into something he wasn't , a bold and competitive child , confident enough to shout out against the other children ,but he was shrinking and shrinking , and I was losing him .. this was not an exaggeration. The school had given up on him and had said as much...but I didn't want him to change .. I read a lovely quote in the Mother Magazine that said .. "who else but your sensitive child would look up and notice the birds in the trees or the dew on the grass.?.'".. and it struck me .. why should he change ?!! ..Within a year I had got him back .... bright , happy , cheerful , slowly growing in confidence and becoming the sunshine he had always been and now at 15 he's a joy to be around , happy in any situation, able to talk to anyone of any age , he shows great empathy and loves life and learning.. Naturally when the registration forms came 5 years ago for my other son to register at a school , I gave them the respect they deserved ..
I have researched
