my dd is carefully and patiently decorating cakes for a confirmation a church tommorow. this seems to be a diffrent child to the one that wanting to kill herself last week. funny how the school blames me , a few days away from the place , of course she isnt cured but seems to be a diffrent child ????
Keep a diary and read it back after a few months.....much easier to make decisions and see what is really going on in hindsight. But yes, it sounds like a school that blames you for your dd feeling suicidal is probably not the best place for either of you.
the environment we are sometimes forced to keep our children in has a lot to answer for make daily notes in a diary and you can spout off to the lea /schhol senco ect how fab she was in a more friendly relaxed environment over the holiday without all the pressures from staff and peers, theres other types of school, HE, and part time you could look into , a change of school , loads of options so dont despare do what you KNOW is right for your individual dc shes not an LEA puppet to fit into their little box bless her , glad shes enjoying herself
problem is shes in year 11 sep so its hard to move , the inafective senco has retired so the new senco already works at the school , is lovely and already knows dd and is always polite when I ring. so I feel some hope xx
in year 11 in MS i presume, well that good so you will see after sept what this ones like so there some hope, whats she studying could if she doesnt get on there she go to a different college(if you had to) ive spoken to you before but ive a memory like a sieve whats your ds sen? if things dont work out what about doing the courses after leaving school in adult learning. I just dont like to think of any teen feeling that desperate, my ds was self harming and so unhappy hes now in SS so different i know but the change made all the difference.
my dd has visual, emotianal and social problems , joint probs and picks up illneses all the time , has been tested blood etc nothing physicaly wrong apart from joints. a bloody social worker came to our house and said she was investigating "faking illness " very tackfully put, I would call it stress induced illness myself !!!. Im taking refusal to assess ,to apeall , I doubt we will win , but want to put the LEA "tossers" through the mill and create as much extra paper work for the barxxxerds as humanly possible , after the way may daughter has been treated and the lies the school has told !!!
