I GOT U!


So it's getting towards the end of the school year and today was progress report conference's; I went into these meetings already knowing what the outcome would be for Isaiah and Imani. Imani is in kindergarten and the work is fairly easy for her; she's being doing good the whole school year so I wasn't expecting nothing less than perfect from her. On the other hand I was nervous for Isaiah because although Isaiah is extremely intelligent he's been struggling with math and I already knew in the back of my head that he would be forced to attend summer school this year in order to move on to the 3rd grade; and of course I was right. Let me give y'all a back a story on Isaiah; as a young child the doctors and myself noticed that Isaiah wasn't talking and at this point he was about 2 years old and only expressing himself through sounds and motions. The doctors suggested that Isaiah should be seen by a speech therapist once a week for a year. After autism was ruled out Isaiah made amazing progress in that program and started talking all day everyday LOL.  Once Isaiah started pre-k he wrote his name for the first time and swear that was one of the proudest moments of my life;I posted that on every social media outlet I had at the time. After having a great year of prek and K Isaiah entered 1st grade and that's when I noticed that Isaiah was writing many of his letters and numbers backwards; I brought this to the attention of his teacher and I was constantly reassured that it was normal and that most kids experience this. Now is at the end of his 2nd grade year and the problem hasn't gotten any better and it seems like no one can give me a straight answer on what to do. I feel like since he's been having this problem other problem are starting to branch off from it ,like his math grade suffering and also his lack of attention. I just feel like a failure sometimes because I don't know exactly what the problem is so in return I cant really get to the root to fully help him. I felt so defeated after I left the meeting that I had to call my sisters because I felt like I just wanted to cry because I feel like I'm failing Isaiah by not knowing what to do. Deep down I know how smart Isaiah is because he tells me so many facts and I'm just sitting there looking at him like how does he know this and I don't he makes me feel stupid at times lol!! I promise myself that whatever is going on with Isaiah we will figure it out together. Isaiah I promise that I will help you reach your fullest potential. 😘

  3. You are not failing him. You are doing what you can and as much as you can and I'm sure with every bit of energy you got. But rest assured, Isaiah has a unique and creative mind. He may not move as fast (as others) but he is moving and it doesn't make him any less special or important. Don't fret friend he is loved and cared for.
