2E Tears

What’s that I hear?  Is that the sound of little girls crying?  Why yes!

It must have been the first day of school in the Brainhugger household.

Why, do you ask, would two girls, grades 4 & 7, both gifted, come home from school and cry?

Perhaps because they are Twice Exceptional students and have learning differences that make them anxious and scared to go to school and wary of the classroom, where they’re afraid their deficits will be revealed.

Yes, that must be it… 2E– the reason for the crying that gives me a knot in my stomach and the reason that the next 9 months of the school year will be fraught with ickiness at our house.

  1. Why are you leaving your kids in that situation? That’s an awful way for them to spend such a huge proportion of their childhood 😦
