My son has missed three days of school out of four days this week so far. He keeps saying he’s too tired to get up in the morning. We try to get him to go to bed earlier but it’s always the same thing, all this week, except Tuesday. He told his dad that he’s being teased but that it doesn’t bother him that much, that it’s just that he’s too tired to get up for school in the morning. I don’t like where this is going. His sister dropped out of school halfway through Grade 9. She’s supposed to be in Grade 12 now, but she doesn’t go to school. Because of anxiety, she claims. My husband never finished his education. He’s afraid of our son turning out the same as him. He’s always been so good about going to school until now. I called the school and waited all day for a call from the principal, who just phoned and said that if he doesn’t go in the morning they can have the attendance counsellor come over and get him to school. That’s the only thing that I can think of. I hope it works. Wish me luck,
I just read a few articles about college students requesting that trigger warnings be put on their books. This is due to many of them having Post-Traumatic Stress symptoms. I think it’s a great idea. Critics say that they shouldn’t have to put warnings on the classics and that they’d have to put warnings on every little thing, and that if they’re in college, they should “grow up”, “get over it” and that “real life doesn’t come with trigger warnings.”
What is your take on this idea? Do you think it would be too hard to put trigger warnings on materials? What do you say to the naysayers? Let me know in the comments below. Thanks,
