Sorry if this seems a bit out of the blue, but I was trying to find information about Indigo
children and I came across an article written by yourself on articlesphere.com and I really,
really need help.
Jacqueline, I cried the whole way through reading it.
I am so worried about my 5 year old son, Shane (or rather, worried about him being a victim of
a stupid ignorant society of total morons). He was born on September 11, 2004, and from the
moment I saw his huge, beautiful blue eyes, I knew he was special. He knows so much about
so much things, he's so loving and considerate, intuitive (if any member of the family is upset,
believe me, he knows about it). He is extremely sensitive to sugar - it's like giving him a shot of
heroin. He catches every single cold and cough going, and he wants to know the inner
workings of EVERYTHING. He was able to count to 10 in Spanish by the age of 2 and a half.
(no one in the family speaks Spanish).
He started school 3 weeks ago, and here the "problem" starts. Every single day, I've been
called in to "discuss his behaviour". He won't stand in line, refuses to finish his work, won't sit,
won't take any orders from anyone - and is very vocal about it, it's not just the standard "NO!",
it's "Don't you dare tell me to sit down, I'm so mad with you right now!" I can see where this is
heading already, the teacher has already been throwing around terms like ADD and
Oppositional Defiance Disorder. I feel like they haven't a clue how to cater for his needs and as
an incredibly talented and clever boy, I'm afraid that he's going to be labeled as a nuisance or a
brat and that he'll fall through the cracks of the school system.
There is no way on this green earth that my son is going to be put on any form of medication,
he does not need it - I feel like it's the teachers who need the medication. It makes my blood
boil and I'm at my wits' end. I've already had the question "What's he like at home?" And the
answer? He's a content, happy little boy who loves to bake, run around with his dog, get
involved with any housework or chore his Dad or I are doing, paint, dance, build lego, spell out
words, make up stories, sit with me listen while I read. If he gets mad, he expresses himself.
He'll scowl, put his hands on his hips, and tell you he's mad and exactly why he's mad. If he's
upset, he'll tell you he's upset or disappointed. He is sensitive, he gets far more worried than
you would expect a 5-year old to get, and if either his Dad or I have any pain anywhere, he'll
come over to "kiss it better." I can't understand how they can't see how clever he is, and I feel
like I'm being "blamed" because my son doesn't want to go through the same drudgery day
after day, sitting in a classroom, wearing the same uniform as everyone else, like a little army.
I don't want him to lose his essence - I'm so worried. I feel like they want me to change him,
and they can't see that it's them that need to change.
It's actually gotten to the point now where I'm considering just home-schooling my son - there
seems to be absolutely no time for any child who doesn't want to conform to some idiot's
version of "normal."
I apologize for the length of this e-mail, I'm just so----I can't even think of a word. It actually
physically makes my heart ache to think that anyone would think that something is "wrong"
with Shane, and it needs to be "corrected." Please, if you have the time, could you point me in
some direction. The rest of society might not be able to understand him, but I'm damn well not
going to let my baby down.
Thank you for reading,
