Just wondering if anyone has any advice on how you deal with your children going to school, particularly mainstream. My partner had a particularly difficult experience dropping our son off at school this morning that involved him having meltdowns for no apparent reason ie running up and down in front of everyone shouting no and upon the comment from the teacher that he came into the classroom well shouting 'no' and throwing his books at her.
He's at a very supportive mainstream primary school with a high proportion of adopted kids. He's only in the nursery at the school but mainly due to a lot of lashing out and aggressive behaviour they're applying for an EHCP and we've got a team around the child meeting next week. We've also applied for the adoption support fund so he can get support from an ed psych and OT.
Just wondered how you find the embarrassment in that context and the feeling that your child has the worst problems and is the worst behaved? My partner said another parent moved his son away from ours this morning and wouldn't meet her eye etc and the fact that there are a lot of adopted kids doesn't even always feel helpful because they generally seem to have less issues and be less extreme.
Any tips on how you approach these feelings and issues is appreciated!
