I have to say that I am anxious about school starting. I posted in another thread that we love summer here, and part of it is the relief from the intensity of the school year.
My middle school dd w/dyslexia is actually doing very, very well in school, but adlolescence and managing an LD is a big job. I am constantly in awe of how hard she works. We are currently struggling with knowing when to push, when not to, etc. It's just not that clear cut because there's a fine line where higher expectations move into the world of too much frustration. It's like fine tuning an instrument in terms of getting the right balance, and it's really important for us to be vigilent about it. She lo0ves school however, has good friends, and gets good grades, so that's a big plus.
My younger, high achieveing, ds continues to struggle with written output. We have got to come to some place of understanding about this, for his sake, this year. I am not feeling great about the situation this year, which is a change because we've previously had really good experiences.
Sorry to not have more enthusiasm. It just feels complicated, and I personally need to be in the mindset for it. Sun is shining, we're still on vacation, so that's where my head is at!
