Baby Boy " Dad's not here" But I am"
Today was such a challenge. My children's first week of school, and the teacher calls me to inquire about my sons behavior. Since my divorce my children have been bounced around d between him and I. Unannounced to me divorces affect the children as well. The behaviors he has been expressing is of pure anger and sadness. He is my middle child I call him my baby boy. To make matters worst his father is incarcerated and I'm a single mother for the first time in my life. The teacher seemed really concerned. She was so bright and caring she seemed to really love her job. I could tell she was one of a kind. The truth is my son misses his father. The anguish of being without him is killing my baby boy. He acts out. I try and reinforce his good behavior and talk my way threw the bad behavior. Its a challenge. I hate to see my child in so much pain. I wish i could carry his pain with me and relieve him of his grief. I have a scheduled an appointment with his pediatrician, I hope that they can recommend counseling. He has trouble sleeping also. I hate to see him this way. My child is smart and has so much to live for if he could just get threw this. I believe he will be a better man.
