Ugh the longer the year goes on the more I think this poor boy in my class has crappy parents. Its really eating at me and its become an internal obsession. I cant seem to let it go. The boy is in 1st grade. He is also in before and after school care. He is in the school building from 6am to 6pm 5 days a week and has a nanny all day on saturday. Yes he is clean, wears nice clothes, is dropped of in a 2013 mercedes....
I still think he is being neglected. I know its not a crime, but it should be.
Update- I talked to the school social worker last week. The final straw for me was the boys sister was home sick so mom took 2 days off. Still left the boy in after school care from 6:30 am till 6pm and mom was not sick. I told her (the social worker) some of my concerns, that he cries easily (if I tell him to pick up the crayons he just dropped he will start sobbing), that he has poor manual dexterity and he is behind in language.
She said it isnt neglect of course, and I knew that. She did say we can find him a mentor so that some of his after school time can be spent one on one with a "foster grandparent" from the senior center next door. They are also going to check to see if he needs speech or occupational therapy.
