He is ubber manipulative. His grandma and grandpa believe him to be confident fun and super caring.
His teacher believes him to be sad and lonely and that he has no self confidence.
He always feels like he is the victim of everyone else's circumstances.
He does weird things like being ubber conflicted if another kid tells him yes and a parent or teacher tells him no or vice versa. Its like he doesnt see a difference in the amount of authority that they have.....tons of examples of that.
He stabbed a little girl in the neck with a pencil at school about 2 months ago.
The interesting thing is that each and every person in his life sees a completely different child. If everyone made a list of 10 characteristics about him they would all be contradictory.
He had real problems with peer level relationships. As in he doesbt seem to have any. He knows all the kids in his class but no invites for playdates or partys etc.
Meeting is on friday to see if they see anything that can point us to answers
Well the meeting was to discuss the results of several tests evaling his intelligence, personality, social skills etc....
The said he was on the lower end of normal for intelligence. Certainly smart enough to figure things out. He lies frequently, and is very manipulative. He is using phrases like " nobody loves me" as a social lubricant with adults...."i havent eaten today" is another favorite..... he still has no peer level relationships or any real apparent desire for them.
They r going to have him work with the ld teacher to learn about emotions and appropriate responses to situations so he can at least ACT normal. That is only 30 minutes a week.
His teacher felt that we just needed to love him more.....more or less...... the psychologist thinks he is just manipulating us. He scored high with anxiety... depression.... manipulation.
He currently is scoring breakfast at home. At school and then directly from his teacher. He tells his teacher he is soooo hungary he cant stand it.
Ugh. Basically he is able to see right from wrong but doesnt care.
