After listening to your show about boys in school I wanted to share my story with you. I am a 41-year-old stay-at-home married mother of 4. 3 boys and 1 girl. When my oldest son started school, the director sat me down and said “you know your son is not normal, right?” He was my first child and I actually had nothing to compare him to, but thought he was normal. She suggested I lie about his speech and try to get him evaluated by the regional center for Autism. I decided not to and pulled him from the school. I spent years trying to figure out what was “wrong” with him. I took him to psychologists and they all said he was normal. In first grade, his teacher said “When I teach he contributes. And then I wonder where he learned that when most first graders raise their hand to say what they had for dinner.” She still insisted there was something wrong, but when I asked her what she thought was “wrong” with him she said maybe ADD and I should have him tested. I moved him to yet another school. Finally in second grade his teacher sat me down and said “There is nothing wrong with him he is just truly gifted.” She gave him advanced reading and helped to boost his lacking confidence from always being told he was not normal. He joined MENSA when he was 8. So now we know what is RIGHT with him. In 5th grade he is reading at a college level and one of the sweetest and happiest kids I know!!!!
