Mama Bear with the Boxing Gloves
I can't shake this feeling that I haven't done enough for DD when it comes to this aide problem at school. After talking about it with O's mom, we've decided to take the problem to higher sources. There is obviously some kind of secrecy going on at the district level and Iwant it blown wide open. I am tired of hearing the always vague "for the good of all the children reason" that does not answer the question of WHY.
DD's problems at home are getting worse. She is more aggressive and controlling to our Dear Doggie Girl. Her temper is worse. She is saying things she has never said before (Don't look at me! Get away from me!) She has started hiding at home and not answering when I call which puts me in dread as I search for her. I am frantic that she will try to run away from the new aide and I do not want to risk that. I worry that she will either lose precious skills or that she will refuse to learn or test further with someone she doesn't know.
I have prayed for peace that did not come until I made this decision to go further. I hate confrontation and avoid it if at all possible. But when it comes to my children, I become brave. I become the Mama Bear with the Boxing Gloves on.
