    I have to say that I cannot even begin to fathom how you would be able to let all of those things go. I am very glad it worked out for you, and no doubt if I had been in that situation, I would have ended up with everyone annoyed by me, and my child in a private school somewhere. I am sure I would come across as the pushy aggravating mother, but I would be absolutely incapable of keeping my mouth shut (just ask my husband! He would be able to, but not me.)

    I'm so glad it worked out for you. Sounds like a nightmare.

    Great story!!!

    We are learning to let Mr W sell himself and just stay in the background.

    So far he has had one teacher who did not warm to him. And we had to remove him from her class.

    I think kids can pick up on the non-verbal cues and react to them...
