Baby girl had another bad day at school today, that’s 3 days out of the 5 this week that ‘something’ has happened. This is pretty typical these days.
Baby girls been struggling with school for over a year now, but this last few weeks I’ve felt she’s been struggling more. A new girl started in her class, she’s targeted baby girl a few times now, a kick, a pinch a push etc. Then there’s the wind down towards the end of the school year. And of course there’s all the mixed up emotions about ‘who she is’, ‘where she came from’, ‘what happened to her and why it happened’.
I don’t know what’s going on inside her, I can only deal with what I see, and I see a confused and frightened little girl that’s struggling.
We sat and had a cuddle after school today, I told her how sad it made me to hear she was getting into trouble at school so much. ‘It can’t carry on’ I said, ‘what should we do?’ I asked her, She said to me ‘I’ve got an idea…….its because I miss you mommy, could I just stay at home with you?’.
I hear her cry’s for help, I’m just not sure what to do next, how do I help her when I can see how much she’s struggling. How do I calm the storm that’s raging inside her. How do I help her to enjoy school, when her teachers just see her as ‘naughty’.
