My 12yr old son brought home some work from school I had to fill out in 5 spaces what I liked about him, he also had to fill in for himself and then there was a spot for friends to write them down and he put NO FRIENDS that just breaks my heart, but it don't seem to bother him as much as it used to, he is bullied, and told what to do by both the boys and girls he tells me he just ignores them or at least tries too, the bulling I have had to deal with already with the school, and the principal has been very involved. When I asked about the girls telling him what to do and where to stand he said he just blows them off and don't listen to them. He was diagnosed with mild aspbergers and his socialiazation can be hard for him but he wants it but is not given the opportunity. They want to put him in a class with other kids who has difficult time with socialization I know he has a tough time with it, but I beleive he would be social if he was given more of an opportunity from the kids instead of being treated like crap all the time. I just don't know if I want him in this class or not! He also told me that a couple of the kids in his class noticed he was rocking and he does this and times don't even realize he is doing it, his teachers have noticed it but they don't make it an issue. I don't know what he should say to the kids or if they even deserve and explanation, the girl who sits behind him is the one who is always telling him to stop and maybe it does bother her but she is one who bullies a lot of the kids also. I feel like I'm just ratteling on. I have mentioned to my son also if he wants to let the kids in his class know about his aspbergers this was mentioned to me by the school phychologist and when I mentioned it to him he said no because it would only make it worse and I have to go with what he wants as he is the one who has to go to the school not me. He is my only child and I love him it took me 10yrs to get him, after all me and my husband went through to get him it was the greatest day in our lives when we adopted him. I know I'm not the only one who has these problems and some are worse than what my son is going through I'm just looking for some imput if anyone is willing. Thank you!!!!
