    That was compassion. It was a nice thing to say, whether true for everyone or not. Possibly a little hyperbolic in my case.

    We now believe he is whats known as PDA (Pathological Demand Avoidance) . You can't give a direct request to him without him melting down (Bit like Mordac really). So knowing that, Im going to gear him up for a life as an IT Support person, where you can ask them to do something and they just sneer at you.

    On a serious note last week I was reading up about people who have a combinations of psychological issues and psychiatric issues. Often the psychiatric issues are mistaken for extended psychological issues.

    If a child is involved, it's best to find an expert who will give an unbiases opinion rather than looking for an expert who will give a comforting but untrue opinion. Too many parents a looking for answers that suit their own thoughts.

    Mrs V as you may know is a child minder, she walks all the kids to school to drop of Miss V3 and some of he school kids. She does this partially so they get exercise, an interesting journey to school and because the school has no public parking so the estate round it is a sea of BMWs & Mercs parking on double yellows so their occupants kids don't have to walk more than 100 feet to school.

    Its a mile plus each day so the kids backpacks go on the stroller and she hands them to the kids before they walk in. One teacher told them off because wasn't building independence in her charges. Its not like they have to wipe these kids bottoms or change their nappies in nursery as they have to with many others.


    Yep some teachers are twerps. Any minute now we will get a post from the teacher liberation front telling us how bad it is.

    Spoke to soon. And he's out of school again. Kicked out of his new special school which supposedly doesnt kick people out, so back to square one.

    Just four weeks into the term. Nice. Glad I spent all that money.

    Private school, only seems to care about the money. He's been there a month, and spends most of it wandering around on his own. He phoned on Wednesday in tears, on his own in the woods, saying he hated it. Another kid had hurt him, and he had deregulated. He then rubbed his phone over a teachers car which left a mark and a small scratch. We'd already been in a week earlier as he alledged a carer had shoved him against the wall, which they denied, but when I called them out, they said they'd put there arm around him (I aint buying it)

    Excluded for damage to a car. The headteacher said 'I may struggle to keep staff if their cars aren't safe' Tosser.

    Review bought forward and they said he will need to find another school. plus he needs to show contrition when we go into today about the car. I may land up lamping someone myself.
