The good news is:
Gadgeteen is in another school within a 15minute walk.
He has attended every day.
I’ve been able to return to work this week.
Gteen is not dyslexic, dyspraxic or any other kind of ‘ic’.
I’ve learnt a bit of maths, science art and Japanese economy.
He finally admitted that he did do what he was excluded for.
We all go roller-blading together.
Gteen loves playing poker.
He keeps threatening to run away.
We’ve eaten home-cooked meals every day.
Gteen has not gained any weight.
We still want to go to Canada.
He has ongoing support from outside agencies.
The bad news is:
He is on his 3rd detention.
We have to attend a meeting at Gteen's new school tomorrow.
I'm still on the 'happy' pills for now.
His attitude towards school hasn't changed.
Gteen has a bill of £113 to pay for damaged books.
I’ve fallen over a lot.
We play a lot of poker.
He hasn’t run away yet.
I’ve gained 18 lbs.
Canada plans have not been on the priority list.
It's taken 2 months to sort out.
I know that I've done what I believe to be the best that I can during my time off with Gteen and have balanced this with Gadget girles needs too. I hope that this experience has made a difference, though it's not exactly visably measurable at the moment. Maybe in a few years time Gteen will be able to reflect on this and appreciate the efforts we've made now, to encourage him onto a path in a positive direction, maybe he won't. Time will tell.
