does not excuse bad behavior. I don't care what you think the dr said.I have a Little Darling with history of bad behavior and just a turd. (I try to see the good in all, but this one it's very hard to.) He started out the year with a dr. note to use the elevator all year due to hurting his knee last year and a dr. note saying he takes medication that will make him sleepy. LD cannot even walk up 3 steps on the bus, so they have to send him an air conditioned suburban to pick him up. He has been out for several days for dr appts. When he comes back, his mother has documentation which says he has sleep apnea. This is the answer she has been looking for (cue the angel choir). Now all his bad behavior and other s/s are explainable. He is bad because he's not sleeping well or getting enough oxygen. It's not related to her parenting skills so she bares no responsibility. Oh, by the way, this diagnosis does not allow your LD to sleep in class!Rant over.
