To make the reasoning behind our decision to pull C from that environment and find another schooling method for him clear, let me explain a bit about our boy. He is sweet and tender-hearted, always the first to comfort somebody if he knows they're sad. He is very eager to please and he loves helping with things because he knows it makes whoever he is helping happy. He is also a joker, always trying to make people laugh. Lately he hasn't been any of those things, if anything he has been the opposite of most of them. Between the physical bullying and the emotional effects its having on him it wasn't worth losing who he really is just to keep him in school.

Short post about something so huge, I know, but talking about the whole situation still infuriates me beyond belief and I try hard to follow the old teaching, "If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all." Maybe after we've gotten a bit of time and distance away from the whole situation I'll be able to talk more on it but for now I'd just like to try and focus on the positives of today.
