Parents of ADHD Children
Seconds from getting expelled from school.
My son is adopted, had him since he was 17 days old. He is in the 7th grade I have always had some issues regarding school, but this year has been the worse. He has a 504 plan, which the school and myself abide by, but my son won’t. He feels the staff is harassing him, he says they follow him all over the school, the RSP teacher will pull him out of class, which he then feels embarassed. He doesn’t want to be singled out. However, due to his behavior there is no choice. He has been mocking the teachers, calling them names, he has been swearing at the teachers and outright defiant. As a mother and just a human being, you can only handle so much and this school is at their wits end as well as I. I have been called numerous times to pick him up from school, which is affecting my job and I explain this to him, but he apparently doesn’t care. His behavior rules are house, my daughter said to me “mom I just want to get in the car and there is no yelling” I felt horrible, because she did not ask for this I have but this on my family, I’m depressed and wishing I had not adopted. I don’t know how to make anything right for him.
Looking for any advice. I wish there was a special school for him, but I have researched and in my area there isn’t.
Thanks for any help.
