First of all, take away his phone, cancel his WOW account, and slap yourself across the Face.
You have failed as a Parent, and now your kid will fail as a Citizen.
BS and crapola.
My father, uncle, and aunt were teachers. My father, science and math. My uncle was a physcist who became a teacher after bailing on his job in
Australia late 50's/60 at what was one of 3 nuclear fusion facilities in the world at the time. He built ham radios in northern BC , and talked to
astronauts and scientists in Russia and China. They sought him out.
Anyway, my father always tried to teach children at their own rate, ie. different streams of school and had quite a success rate of turning learning
around for kids. He had students coming up to him years later, over and over again, thanking him for turning their lives around.
But, he didn't see any point in all the mandatory courses in the schooling. Learn to Read and Write and Do Basic Math. All the rest can be learn at
any time, via the skills of reading and writing and math. All the rest should be electives, or short toe ins, so all students get a toe into
everything on a frequent basis and then have tons of choices. He was all about choices.
He has 4/5 grandsons wtih apraxia, and 2, the second oldest now over 20 and the youngest 11, have had quite the time of it in school, and physical
apraxia disrupting the signals to the muscles and those 2 had occuptational therapists, and learning assistants. Yet on anything not language
structured, for abstract thoughts in the tests, they scored years over their age group.
The rest straightened out. The 13 year old shook apraxia, finally this past year, and missed alot of school due to sickness since (FUKUSHIMA) and is
now on 65 mgs of iodide crystals and got 95% summer school math and the teacher said he passed English with hardly attending so she considers him very
Parents are not the same people as their children by the way. Kids are their own people, and they do well or less well even in highly gifted
families, depending on their makeup.
I wouldn't judge anyone, at all!!!!!
Oh, my dad said he was sorry to me, he said he was a science teacher but he had something akin the apraxia, he thought it was dyslexia. I remembered
I always had to spell for him and then my thyroid quit and then my spelling is out the window, for structure went out the window with that.
Don't every judge anyone.
2 stars for judging what you don't have a clue on.
