She seems to be doing so much better at math specifically. She just began 3rd grade math this week and is not struggling at all. She took a test today and should have made an A but just made several mistakes like added when she should have subtracted or put her commas in the wrong place. Mistakes that show she just hurried through and didn't pay attention. A huge problem for her.
So school is better.
But home life is so not better.
She has been grounded all week for compulsive lying, not sleeping, wandering around the house at night, throwing her lunch in the trash and saying she ate it because she didn't like it, back talking, fighting with her sisters. And a lot of our stuff has come up missing this week. She swears she didn't take it, but I'm sad to say I don't always believe her.
I am so hoping that this is just part of the IM therapy stimulating part of her brain that holds all that trauma from her early days.
Because I only thought I was frustrated before.
I know it seems like I'm quitting or giving up or whatever, but I'm resigned to the fact that she will be going to public school next year. I want her to finish out her therapy, which is in the middle of the day and that wouldn't work with public school, and she's getting tested in April to check grade level. Until then, I will keep on keeping on and attempt to shove as much information into her expanding mind as I can, and I will begin to make plans for next year.
