If my blog had one of those emotions things, I would put 'discouraged' in it and have a little sad face next to it.
Austin had 8 hours of testing last week with strangers. He was polite, he was charming, he was together! He had a few times where he started to get upset, but apparently he used the tools we've practiced to get control over himself.
Today and yesterday? It's been tear-fest 2006. Everything is upsetting him it seems! EVERYTHING.
So, of course, I take a quick leap of logic and think that maybe he'd be better off at school. I remember what school was like for him in Kingergarten but that was a long ago. Maybe he would do better there and wouldn't cry.
It's just so frustrating. I can tell myself that he was especially 'on' because of the testing and that he is more comfortable with me so he lets go. But it doesn't help. And now I really wonder what the doctor is going to say about homeschooling. Here I went on and on about how he has a hard time maintaining control of his emotions, and he's mister cool for the testing. I wouldn't be surprised if she recommends sending him to public school. ::sigh::
OK, back to business... test prep for next month's ITBS.
