Wednesday, November 06, 2002

Report cards came out yesterday. Since both boys are in learning support they did well. I think they threw out some of the bad grades that the middle son had because he didn’t make anything below a C even though we were led to believe during our meeting prior to learning support, that he was doing very poorly. The oldest made honor roll. He didn’t do too badly in his mainstream classes. Of course, his tests are adapted to his needs, so that makes a difference as well.
Our daughter floored us. She was 1 point away from an F in English and made a D in Social Studies too. She had 3 C’s and 1 A. She thought the 1 A would make up for all the rest of it. Needless to say, she has lost TV privileges for the next 9 weeks and will lose Girl Scout privileges for at least the next meeting. She was on the honor roll all last year. I don’t know if she is rebelling because we moved them out of the Christian school or if what she is learning now is just so different that she isn’t getting it. I checked her homework throughout the 9 weeks and I thought things were going better than that.
I was devastated. Why does it hurt me so much? Why can’t I just let it go and hope that things will get better when she’s ready? Why do I automatically assume that there is no hope for any of them now and that none of our kids will go to college? WHY WHY WHY
