For the first several days of public school, I quizzed Steven thoroughly about his day, being sure to ask “feeling” questions. Overall, he seemed to be quite content with school, even proud of not feeling too anxious about the first day, and only had positive things to say.
So imagine my surprise when I got an email from his teacher indicating otherwise!!
After asking Steven about it, it sounded like there was one time when he didn’t know what was going on or perhaps didn’t know what the expectations were and got teary and sad. But apparently he’d forgotten about it by the time school was over and we picked him up! He was also really sad when he thought he forgot his homework folder at home (turns out that I had packed it for him already but he didn’t realize it).
