Hi. I am ticked. What’s new.
There is this thing that Declan wanted to join. It is a school thing, but not really. It’s before and after school and the kids involved are supposed to get in groups of two or three kids.
We were a little late on the ball, and everyone is paired up. Everyone is turning Declan away.
Finally we got on the phone and started calling parents. There was a ray of hope with a long time friend of Declan’s – but her partner, a boy that Declan doesn’t know very well, and we don’t know at all, “doesn’t work well in groups.”
According to his parents.
His parents said that their child “doesn’t work well in groups,” – one of the main goals of this activity, I would presume – when another parent was asking if ONE child could be added to their TWO person group, because that child didn’t have a group of his own.
If this is a glimpse of the politics and bullshit ahead, I am raising the white flag now.
