Waiting for a teacher to have issues with him enough that she reaches out to you is really unfair to your son. Some people believe in breaks over the summer. I couldnt do that with my son. Do you take any medication? If you had high BP would you take a break in the summer because maybe the stress of the average day was less?

This resonated with me, but not because I take meds for high blood pressure.

I began wearing glasses in 3rd grade. What if my parents took them away
during the summer and sent me back to school for 4th grade without them,
just to see if my eyes were better. OMG.
