I cried.............


Recommended Posts

Had to attend my first ever DISM today. All going well, and I gave my views about the child concerned. It has been recommended that the child attends a few sessions at the local opportunity group, in addition to my setting. All was well really, until they asked for the father's opinion. He went very quiet, then said, 'yes, I am pleased that he can come to the opportunity group, but I have to say that i want to thank X (my setting) for giving me back my son'...........silence. Total utter silence. I looked at him, he looked at me, then he said.....' She ( me) has given me back my son. I don't live with him and when I do see him, I see wonderful differences every time. She has done that'............now, I don't know about you, but I defy you to have sat there with dry eyes. I am dumfounded and humbled in equal measures. And THAT, my dear friends, is why we do our jobs,put up with horrid parents and non-payers. Because very now and again, someone thinks you get it right........and says so. I am not telling this blow my own trumpet. I am doing this to celebrate a child who is developing, ever so slowly, bit by bit, but who has grown in leaps and bounds in his father's eyes. I salute all children who grow in the face of some awful difficulties.........and parents who love them and appreciate every single gain, however small. ^_^
