A Parenting Taboo I wasn't going to write a post today, I had nothing to say. However, as the day has gone on, something is playing on my mind.......and this is the only place I can talk about it.
I am going to break a big parenting taboo, this is my big fat parenting fail.
Tomorrow, my sons yr 1 class is going on a school trip, to a farm. When we received the letter about it, I had my concerns, so I took them to the teaching assistant that lets them in in the morning. I was concerned because, although my son functions so well in the classroom (even though he is a little behind in learning terms), sometimes it's easy to forget he needs extra help.
If you take him out you have to tell him where you are going all the time, he will wander off otherwise. He has very little focus when in a stimulating area. So in a farm he's likely to go where ever his whim or fancy takes him. I was concerned that, although they have a very high ratio of adults to children, he might get lost in the midst.
