As a mother all I want is WHAT IS BEST FOR MY CHILD
Every thing that I do, every choice that I make is for their well being. They are my number 1
SO WHY ALL THE FIGHTING!!
The thing that I'm slowly starting to learn is that when you have a child that is a little out of the "norm" a little out of the "main stream" you are going to have to FIGHT for that child's rights.
They tell you over and over be an advocate for your child, they say "you are the voice for your children"
the second you start to use your voice and begin to advocate a different way, a way that is BEST for your child they SHUT YOU DOWN, why? because "this is the way we do things"
BECAUSE for some reason they feel that they have all the answers and your voice is NOTHING.
So why even bother, why make us believe that you want to listen, why give us a sense of meaning, a sense of importance? YOU will never listen, you do things a certain way and you make no exceptions for my exceptional child.
All I want is what is best for him, but you will not HEAR IT!!
because to you his is a nobody, just one more kid that is going to get eaten up in your system. A system that just pushes children through, a system of cracks, a system that has failed many children before him and I will not let my son be another child lost in your system.
What you offer will not help him, what he NEEDS is what I'm asking for.
and I am tried of this fight
(this is not a type 1 issue it is a learning disability issue for my son Connor but I just needed to vent to people that understand) Thanks for listening!!
