I know its the summer hols but ours is ending soon and my youngest is HE but the others prefer school so we get back to the grind on the 17th August so is there any Scottish ones out there for a natter or meeting up if not to far out of course.
Still fairly new to this as I took him out 3 month before the hols and well we havent looked back. He is less stressed and more willing to learn things bless him.
Yup I know then lasses from schoolhouse very well thanks as they helped my sanity in the first few weeks as the school tried to say no and they wouldnt release my lad which was total hogwash.
We then moved area and I have had the council and the SS at the door saying I didnt follow procedure when I did and told em to go away very sweetly. It really pissed me off them being there and the way they did it.
Hi there Butterball need answers please as we are new hows the socializion going as we dont meet that many HEers in Ayrshire sadly.
Lad is now asking if he can go back as he has no friends poor bugger. Need to go and see what is what on the site that was yahoo mailing list.
Hi! I've not been on much recently or I'd have said hello a bit sooner. Unfortunately I can't be much help about the whole socialisation thing - DS was only HE from 13 and was still in contact with people from school so we never really got involved with HE groups etc. And now he's heading back to school for Highers, which feels quite weird
If the HE groups aren't working out in your area, are there other activities he'd maybe like to do which would give him the time with his age-group? Cubs/scouts, sports clubs, music/drama groups - whatever kinds of things he might enjoy really. Boys often seem to find it easier to make friends when they're doing some activity together, not just hanging out.
Hello, I am a HE in Edinburgh, 1 child in college, 1 in school, 1 HE and baby to be HE. The socialisation chestnut is one thrown up at us all from time to time by those who do not understand the joy of HE, and most of the HE children I know are better socialised than those in school.
