My child now says that he doesn't have to go to school. It's BORING he says. Oh so you know everything they are teaching I ask. Yes I do and I know more than that! HAHAHAH! This is my 8 y/o DS who is in 3rd grade! He says he doesn't have to know math, science, social studies, reading. He got pissed at me for making him learn his spelling words and threw some chairs around, kicked a wall until he cried cuz his toe hurt, and screamed bloody murder when I put him in his room to calmn down.

Now I know this behavior is a symptom of his bipolar. He is thinking very hightly of himself these days isn't he? I just wanted to share the joy. I know you want to adopt him, but he's allll mine.

Boy am I glad we see his doc in a few weeks.
