Ok, tis a few years hence... but my son is doing my head in. HOWEVER, I can see where he is coming from - he is bilingual and his headteacher has told him (and given him a detention for - ***? Had a meeting with her today)... "No way do I believe you can speak English better than your classmates". (headteacher was covering the lesson). This after he had finished a year 6 (your year whatever...2 years-ish on) activity in 15 minutes, then raised his hand and asked for extra work (which is the agreement) as he is actually usually working on year 8 or 9 tasks. BUT, my son is being a complete stubborny, bolloxing pain in the **** and told his teacher to lick it (I inwardly did a little cheer, I was there when he said it. My ex was too and he also had to suffocate a grin). Which I can't tolerate, though (oh, my I was a wee bit proud though - just the language, ye Gods). But she is a witch (he need not know that). When is this awful puberty over and done with and would it be ok if I killed his teacher tomorrowk, or should I wait until Monday? Son has house arrest and no computer until the Summer holidays. He hates us now.
