A teacher once said "she is the best thing to come along since sliced bread". Granted this was a rather old guy speaking here and my kids had no idea what he was talking about so an explanation was needed. If I were a teacher the kid he was speaking about would be the type of student I would want to have in the classroom too. She did her work to the best of her ability and on time, she was able to ask questions when she did not understand, she was respectful and responsible in the classroom. We have received many similar compliments about our kids over the years but with some of the kids I can not believe that they have earned such credit. This is most evident with our kids who happen to have FAS
Allen is the most stubborn, do things on my terms only person on earth.
Hanna, well she just has no rules, boundaries, morals, or anything of the sort. She lies, steals, cheats, hurts people both physically and with her words, she is not able to follow directions, stay on task unless she is obsessing on something, lets just say she has no people skills.
Paul although really, really sweet, cuddly, and adorable is chattering nonstop, very hyper, and even when he is being nice and helpful is so full of energy that he does not even know when he is hurting you.
What is really going on here? Do these kids some how turn off these behaviors during the school day and save all of them for us at home? If they are able to behave so well at school then I sure wish someone would fill me in so the same could happen here as well. I would enjoy the latest and greatest thing on the planet, calm, quiet, order, chaos, free, life.
