Re: Can't he come up with a better story than this?

Are you kidding me??? :doh:

Re: WWYD? Advice needed re: 9 year old son

UPDATE: I met with the counselor this morning. I think it went well. She's going to talk to DS to see how he's feeling and then will use her next guidance session with the class to talk about including everyone, being kind, etc (they meet with the kids every other week and their next session is Tues...

Re: Parenting question.

I do not go into right vs. wrong. I tell my children that families have different beliefs and different values just as they have different rules. Every family gets to choose how they live. We have our own beliefs and values and we may not agree with the beliefs and values of others. It is fine to d...

Re: WWYD? Advice needed re: 9 year old son

Thanks calliecake, janesmith and missy! I think we are doing what we can do on our end. I did make an appt. with the school counselor (which is odd for me, because that's what I'm trained for, but somehow, when it's your own kid, the objectivity flies out the window!!) to see what insight/suggestion...

Re: WWYD? Advice needed re: 9 year old son

Thanks hotpozzum and momhappy! If nothing else, this post helped me gain some perspective. I'm sure that I'm overly sensitive, both because it's my child and because I wasn't always treated well as a teenager, so my radar is attuned for this kind of thing. Of course, there is a difference between be...

Re: Question about antique earrings I am about to purchase..

I prefer the first pair (I'd want to swap out the stone with the fish eye), though I do think that they are dressier than the 3rd pair, which you might be able to wear more often. If the 3rd pair were closer to the ear, I'd probably like it more. Of course, if your DH hates the 3rd pair, then I gues...

Re: WWYD? Advice needed re: 9 year old son

Hi, I love your kid. He's not upset, his mother is upset for him. To me, the fact that he keeps asking him(other kid) in a kids off-hand way if he wants to warm-up with him, and the kid says hes going to wait for joey, tells me he is pretty well adjusted for his age. Mom, thats what kids do. You ke...

Re: WWYD? Advice needed re: 9 year old son

Hi Yenny, You have gotten some really good advice from the other posters. I just wanted to chime in and say 'hang in there'. I have three sons and grades 5 - 7 were particularly difficult. It kind of depends on the child's personality on how they each dealt with being 'on the fringe' not quite popu...

Re: WWYD? Advice needed re: 9 year old son

I read your post and feel for you. I try telling my kids that in 10 years these kids will mean nothing to them so try not to let it get to them to much. I know that's hard for a kid. But it seems to work, my youngest is just like whatever when it comes to those certain type of people that you are d...

Re: WWYD? Advice needed re: 9 year old son

I have to agree it's the parents' job to teach and model respectful, kind, inclusive behavior. And unfortunately I think intervening on your child's behalf will do little to change the other kid's behavior. My daughter has had an easy time with friendships so far, but I have noticed some of the gir...

Re: WWYD? Advice needed re: 9 year old son

I am sorry your son is dealing with this. It is too common, unfortunately. I have a nine-year old son. It can be a tricky age. My son is very independent and it doesn't bother him in the slightest if a kid chooses not to play with him. Thankfully, he has a core group of buddies who stick together. ...

Re: WWYD? Advice needed re: 9 year old son

Hi Yenny: I feel you. My son went through that in 5th grade too. However, these were friends that suddenly decided to turn on him, as a group. I tried a group outing. Didn't help. I spoke to two of the moms cause I knew them pretty well personally. One was receptive, though it didn't help much with...

Re: WWYD? Advice needed re: 9 year old son

Physical bullying is NOT okay. The rest of what you've described, I'd leave alone. Talk to your son about how some people behave this way and encourage him to be the polite kid who tries to welcome others. Don't approach them (or their parents since that is who taught them...) and think it will do ...
