I’ve got a happy girl on my hands. It’s a wonderful feeling.
After 3 weeks of “trying things out” at her old school, it was decided that she was doing so well, that we’d send her back.
She started back at the beginning of April. She’s halfway through her 5th week and it’s like she never left.
There’s no more talk of “regression” or “unwilling to work” or “won’t participate”. All we hear now is “doing so well” and “having so much fun” and “progressing beautifully”.
She’s still got a long way to go, but in the last 5 weeks she’s done more academically than she ever did at her other school.
I knew she hadn’t regressed.
She just needed to be in a different environment. The right environment for her.
My only regret is that we didn’t stand our ground when we were making arrangements for her kindergarten last year.
We wanted her to stay in that school, but were told we couldn’t because of “protocol”.
We did what we were told we had to do and it blew up in all of our faces.
I’m glad we were able to make the change mid year, but it still doesn’t bring back the 6 months
we she lost.
Because in the end it’s all about her and what is right/best for her.
I finally feel that we are doing what is right.
We are where we are supposed to be.
