My son L___ is twelve and gifted but boredom at school leads him to join in with the chaos that surrounds him. After numerous meetings on how they should handle him I am mortified that teachers are undermining him as they cannot cope with the challenges he presents.
All the while his education is suffering as only two members of staff are willing to try and extend him. I am so frustrated and at a point where I feel I could do a better job educating him at home but then he will miss out on the social side of life that school gives.
