somedays dd just sleeps soundly late. i cant predict that. its not a get her to bed early thing. i think somedays our body needs that extra rest. and i see the effect that it has on her.
this is the reason why for my dilema. i can totally understand why the school has this rule in place. and yet i feel sad that our life has to be run by rules, esp when i have the option of letting her sleep in. esp. at 7 years old when we are learning/discovering how our inner bodies work.
we have not had this issue before. and i think its happening because dd is dealing with a lot. she is growing mentally and her sensitiveness is making it hard to deal with certain things. plus she is in a v. challenging class. so i think its a matter of adjusting. and its because of this reason i feel she should be given the freedom to adjust. once things fall into place i know she will be ok.
the school can be a little more understanding. i guess i will have to go and talk to them. the principal. but i know it will not do any good because they all have the attitude 'that's life'!!!! i just refuse to say that to my 7 year old now. she already gets that being from a single parent household. she doesnt need that coming at her from every single place. somewhere something needs to give - and be a little more understanding.
thanks for expressing your thoughts. it helps me figure out what i want. makes me understand what about it is bugging me - makes things clear for me.
honestly for me school is NOT that important esp for a child who can miss a weeks worth of school and not be behind. her teachers have been understanding - but its the school and rules.
