My son is very sensitive. He's in special Ed for a learning disability. He's in the 6 th grade. He had to watch a documentary and he saw a woman getting beat. Now he has to write a report. My son is bothered by the documentary. Should I talk to his teacher?

    Immediately.....I wouldn't have my child write a report about a video that clearly disturbed them, and the teacher can't expect them to if it had that sort of effect.

    Even if he wasn't in a special needs class that doesn't seem age appropriate at all.

    I would definitely give his teacher a call. Maybe they can give him an alternative assignment.

    The subject was slavery, something that isn't pretty and is studied in school.  I'd talk to my son, explain more about slavery and it's history.  I  would not have a problem with the teacher.
