More discouraging news

Scott got word back he was ineligible for the job with boarder patrol. They based there decision on a test based on a video test where he was given scenarios and had to reply what he would do in certain situations. to me that would be nerve racking . He passed everything else they told him to try again next year. Well now there is going to be more stress in our house because right now he feels like a failure to us. He hasn't been able to find right job to support us without church assistance . I don't know what to do anymore . I have a little boy who has no respect for authority what soever the teacher finds every little fault with him and marks down his behavior . We have tried working with her but like noah she won't listen to us we asked for him to be switched to another teacher we can't do that because or numbers . since he played barbershop he is not allowed to use scissors so she does the cutting for him he sits by himself he has come home covered in sand everyday last week he told the teacher teacher did nothing other moms don't like her either one kid said the song they were learning was silly he got marked down well it is a silly song .
i am so lost right know i don't know were i am . i need help in every direction
please pray for our family we really need it
scott and i are close to a seperation and i don't want to lose him i work so hard to make this family work but he isn't doing his part to help out

I'm so sorry things are not going well for you right now. I wish we still lived there and I would take your kids for a while or help w/the house or whatever you'd need. You were always so kind to offer your services to me. I appreciated it so much. Maybe you and Scott could benefit from some form of counseling to help you deal with all this stress.(?) Hang in there!

Mel -- sorry to hear about all these tough times. About your little guy -- if he is having such problems, something has to be bothering him. With my boys, I put them in a little class with the social worker in school that taught them how to play, be nice, etc. It really worked. As for your teacher -- they can make or break the child. Have you also had testing for your little guy. Sometimes his struggles are beyond his control and he may need help to keep him on the right track. Remember that there are no bad children -- he is just too young to be making bad decisions just because he wants to. This is his way of begging for help.
