    I may be just a mom too, but I do know that Ive been pushed around, talked down to, and ignored for way too long. This district appears to be banking on the idea that I won't know what to do. (Which is why Im reaching out, I know enough to know I don't have to just accept this .. I just don't know what steps to take)..  What I will never understand is why so many teachers and administrators seem determined to see us parents as enemies and fight us rather than working with us

    His fire, their mommy. I never wanted to be different, I just wanted to be me.

      That's the point of me saying, I'm "just a mom"... I'm THE  expert on my kid. I'm the hub of all information and communication for the whole support team that treats her. I've actually had the psychologist, in front of me, tell someone else that I know as much as any PhD at this point on her issues... and I sure as hell have clocked thousands of hours more "field time" than anyone else on her team.

      NEVER let some suit tell you who your kid is or what they have in terms of ability or potential.

      Best video I've seen is this. I disagree with the part he goes on about ADHD being an made-up epidemic, - I have an ADHD kid with a chromosome deletion to prove it -  but otherwise... the video nails it.
