My son is 9 and is having a hard time at school- he is now in third grade and the kids are getting mean and he says they tease him all the time.
I don't know what to do. I am a single mom and have to work or I would homeschool him in a heartbeat. I do have the option to move or even try to put him in a private catholic school here.
We are different and so is he- he is very artistic and deep and sensitive. I am so scared for him and sad. I don't know what to do or even what my options are or what the right road to go down is...
His dad lives in our town but sees them mostly every other weekend. He needs to see his dad more... but he does not ever follow through when he says he will see them extra.
Anyone been through this- what did you do, how did you handle it?
He is in therapy. He never wants to get out of bed, or go to school or go to boy scouts or do anything- he just wants to be home and not with people.
I never expected him to be the most popular boy in school but him being teased to the point he no longer wants to attend school is to much.
We live in a rural community.... I just need some advice- if you were faced with these issues- what changes did you make, how did you help your kids through it and what do you reccomend?
