In many ways it has been a productive year, but also the most difficult. Ds speech has improved, but he takes everything he hears to school including the good and bad. Now he has fallen in love with one of the girls in his class. He wants to marry her, kiss her, etc. the girl's parents have called the school to complain and the mother frowns when she sees me. Off course in her mind I'm a bad parent. I have talked to ds, threaten to punish him if he doesn't leave her alone, but nothing works. Today he and another kid got in trouble for talking about kidnaping the girl and cutting up another kid. He said he didn't start it, but because he can't express himself well, he get blamed for It. I'm so scared and feel completely helpless. The school agree that they were joking and have no intention nor the ability to do anything to anyone, I live in CT - After Sandy Hook there is not a lot of room for jokes. I'm living my dream and nightmare right now. I have been crying since I picked him up. Is this normal? What should I do?
