Isn’t it strange?

Isn’t it strange?

You go to a meeting at your childs school ready to tell them how they are struggling.
You go armed with evidence to suggest that things just aren’t working.
You enter with reams of paperwork describing how the conditions they have affect them.
You are ready to state chapter and verse about the difficulties….

……and then they tell you what you already know and what you were going to say……
….and you feel hurt.

Why is that?
They are stating facts.
They are saying what I already know, what I see myself.
That’s what it is……….because THEY are saying it.
The words are not my own.

It is hard to hear things about your child however much you know it.
It feels hurtful.
I am not even sure why.
They are the truth.

Maybe I am being defensive.
Defensive because it is my child.
It’s just odd, because I know.
I know my child, I see the difficulties.
Maybe it is because it makes it more real.

It is what I wanted, and needed, to hear to get action taken.
It is what I wanted the school to say, wanted them to have noticed.
It is what we needed from the meeting, but it hurt….
…..because it is my child.
