Rant: Parenthood




I know there are going to be some parent's that read this post and think GIRL you ain't seen nothing yet but I feel like I need to get this off my chest. So please.

This has been the hardest school year EVER! Not just for C.J but for my entire family. We've watched as our son's school made him a target, feel shamed, and tried to break him. We've spent countless hours, money and energy on making sure he behaved properly, worked hard (er) and maintained a sense of self only to breathe a HUGE sigh of relief that it is over. Now what's next?

In the last year I've learned more about good versus bad teachers, curriculum that I believe could be effective if the emphasis was actually learning not just passing a test and the lack of support a school will actually give you. And to say it's enough to make me want to home school is the understatement of the year. I've also spent too much time in a woe is me state but that ends today! I want so much for my boys, my husband wants even more for them than I do and so today we step up and not only become protectors of these little versions of us but strong advocates. We know that there are some things we need to change at home and we will do that but we also know that the current situation may be dimming the light of our child and We ain't got time for that (c) Sweet Brown.

*sigh* Being a parent is so hard man! So damn hard!
