Saturday -CHATTY VENTING PLAIN AND SIMPLE
More rantings and ravings today about my grandson.
My grandson is dyslexic with ADHD. Now the only thing he can't do is spell and his writing suffers. However in middle school there are no more spelling tests and writing is done on a computer. His other grades and test scores are in the high 70% ranking.
These are the facts as I know them.
Christian schools are not equipped for this. They also give scholarships to help pay for the kids that do get accepted.
The dyslexic schools are equipped, but offer no scholarships. They cost 10K-20K.
Now my GS is in regular classes - he has made a couple C's all the rest A's and B's in all 6 years. So how equipped do they have to be? He has had no discipline issues either.
We are still waiting for school number 3 in March.
Now - why do I really want a Christian school?
Thursday night the GS came home and told us that he was called gay by the same boy he has been bullied by all year long. The bully then told another boy not to get close to the GS because he was a gayster - whatever that is - and it might rub off on him.
We went in to the school Friday morning and basically we come to find out that apparently that word isn't so bad anymore. It is just something that he has to go through - like a rite of passage to teenage hood. I heard that about ten times. I guess they were saying the GS needed to grow up.
Now I have friends who are gay, but calling someone that and telling others not to play with them is mean at age 10. Apparently if he was called but some other names - starting with J, n, or use the word that starts with an f - that would constituent abuse.
The school officials checked out the stories from the other kids. And yes the boys did call him that, but because it was a 'game' they were playing and the GS didn't tell that part of the story - my grandson got yelled at and in big trouble. Although GS called no one a name.
Now yes GS should have told us the whole story - but it is sexual harassment to call someone a name like that or not - because it was a game does it make it okay? Oh yeah I forgot to tell you - the bully - his mom is a teacher there.
I was talking to my sister yesterday and I was riled and when I was walking down the stairs phone in one hand and glass dishes in another - I missed the 3rd step from the bottom and I fell - hook line and sinker. My left shoulder hurts and my right leg. Oh me oh my. My fault as I wasn't paying attention.
So I am VENTING tonight. Sorry. I just needed too. You don't have to even comment if you don't want. Not sure what to do. Yes, I do. I am going to bed praying. To have God help sort this all out! I answered my emails today, but I am late reading your posts, but I will. What in the world would I do without y'all?
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
Tomorrow is a new day.
Joy Cometh in the Morning.
