ShaesMom Posted May 1, 2009 Report Share Posted May 1, 2009 I asked my dd 1st grade teacher to keep a journal for two weeks that I could take with me to the Rheum. It came home today in an envelope addressed "To the Dr's of..." with the date written over the licked seal. I assume this was meant so I wouldn't open it. Anyway, after reading her notes it is quite clear that she believes my dd's separation anxiety is clearly a reflection of me and how I have reacted to the ordeal. My dd was a model student prior to Feb and the teacher was actually a friend. I have done nothing but insist that my dd attend school every morning--almost to the point where I think I might be to hard on her. I explained at a meeting with the school psy. and her teacher that her behavior was due to the inflammation in her brain but clearly they still believe that it is strictly a behavioral problem. this frustrates me to no end! There were a few days where her anxiety level was an 8-10 the entire day of school. Why would someone not call me to come and get her if she was struggling so much. Last week the school actually asked me not to attend a field trip with her class because they were concerned that she was going to disrupt the rest of the class when I left. Needless to say her teacher was not very happy when I informed her that I would indeed be going on the field trip and taking me daughter home with afterwards. In fact, she said she would pass along my decision to the principal. Since when does a principal need to know a parent is going on a field trip?? Sorry, I just need to rant & rave! Thanks!!
