Evaluation of my son

2 Comments

Well, I didn’t do my blogging this morning, but it isn’t a surprise.  We had a team of people out to evaluate our son this morning.  You see, he’s two and a half and not talking as much as the doctor would like.  Ok, I’m a little concerned about that as well.  Anyway, the team arrived at 9:00 am and started the evaluation a little after that.

I know this is is a good thing, and it is for his own good, to help him catch up to children his own age.  I know that it isn’t  a slur against my mothering or anything like it, but that is what it feels like.  I feel guilty.  I feel like I’m failing my child.

Well, all I can do at this point is recognize the things that I do need to do better, the mistakes I’ve made, and the problems I’ve had, and rectify them or improve, then move on.  Focusing on the mistakes and problems isn’t going to help.  Focusing on fault isn’t helpful.  I need to take action and move on; I can’t just get depressed about this.  As a parent, I’ve got to pull myself up, dust myself off, and focus on my children.

  1. I don’t know you but you are not a failure. These things are so often totally out of our control. The team will provide you with knowledge and knowledge is power. The report they generate will give you recommendations of how to help your son and how others can help him as well. I wish you peace today. I am sure it has been stressful and difficult but you cannot let yourself feel you own this.

    Peace

  2. Thank you so much. I have always been a “worrier” and this has just intensified that, despite my best efforts. I’m sure this will send us in a good direction and ensure that my son is the best he can be – which is already pretty wonderful! I appreciate the wish for peace – I could use it. I’m going to go try to unwind a bit! Thank you again!
