Hi, I would like your opinion about this.
I'm a single mother of a 7 year old son. When my son was 3.5 years old, I started working as a teacher in a college, which caters for 3 years old until 18 years old. I teach students from the ages of 16-18 years. My son is a very happy boy at school, and he's top in his class. He is a very sociable boy, and so happy to be able to come with me in school. We drive back and forth together and we have same holidays, sports days, etc. I do not let him in my class during break time, and he never asks to come. Once he got hurt in his break time, and he came looking for me, but I made it a point that he doesn't have to come in class to tell me, to solve this problem on his own, as otherwise he'll be a mummy's boy. He is way ahead of his students academically, and even the way he reasons things. I want him to fend for himself and his teachers tell me that he is really independent.
He hardly sees his father, as his father has a partner who really irritates him, and it doesn't bother my son at all if he misses some access time. People tell me that it's not healthy that he comes to the same school I work in. What do you think?
