Update on explaining Nicolas chewing. Grrr.
So, I was explaining what happened and that I knew if the teacher saw first hand that it helps that she would allow it with no arguing. But if I would have just said that he was bringing it, that it would have been some disapproval by the teacher. Well, my mom automatically said she doesn't like it. And then asks what happens when he is in 2nd grade and gets teased. I then told her about the thing you can put on a pencil and explained that it is a sensory thing. She still doesn't like it.
Then my husband heard me talking and asked about the chewy tube at school. I told him too and he said that nick doesn't need it and he don't want him to take it! I explained everything all over again. His end was that is his opinion and he is allowed to have one. Well, my end comment was, that there is some data that he can show me that supports his opinion, then it doesn't matter because I'm going to send it to school with him to help him relax. Grrrr I'm tired of this argument.
