I have a super amazing son that has a lot to deal with lately. I recently changed his schedule so he is only at school for 3 hours a day. He gets a lot of stress if he is around a lot of noise and a lot of people at one time. He is off the charts smart so we are not all that worried about his academics but I wonder if us taking him out of his 2nd grade class was the right choice because of him not really having any social skills. I don't want to make it worse for him to be around his peers. He already has a lot of trouble with bullies which is bad for many reasons but one in particular, he beats up the kids that are being mean to him and he doesn't always understand that he can't just hurt people if they are teasing him, and that is the reason why I chose to take him out of all the specials like gym, music, lunch, recess, art. Anything that doesn't have more of a controlled area. But if I do this long term am I going to make things worse for him later on in life?
I also have a set of 5yr old twins that need my love and attention too. That's a whole other story...
