the power of the dark side
apparently it is perceived that I am raising a wild bohemian child. or as her principal said, a abstract random child. whatever. yes, I have created a theatre kid. yes she is dramatic and emotive and creative and bright and that equals trouble in school for a 7 year old. I had a meeting with her principal today to discuss Maddy's teacher and the personality conflict that seems to exist. I am hating that. I wish I could send her to a more free flowing school instead of the school that she goes to. there is nothing wrong with her school. it is the best in the county but I am worried about squashing creativity and her growth and thereby wrecking her love for learning. so I am faced with another instance where I have to stuff my views and feelings and also my childs for her future success. this is a hard road for me.
