I wonder if the powers that be sit down and think how can we make peoples lives difficult even though life is difficult enough. Oh I know , let’s have a mid-week inset day, that will stir things up and make life stressful.
Today my daughter’s school decided it would have an inset day, not at the end of the week or the start of the week that would have been more logical. Right in the middle of the week. My daughter has autistic traits (full diagnosis of autism not verified YET !! ) and works to a strict routine. It wasn’t till today that we realised how much this routine control her.
She was like a caged animal that suddenly went berserk and she erupted like Mount Edna, there was no calming her down. This all started off at 3.30pm it was a constant barrage of screaming, throwing things. This was so much more than a tantrum this was a full blown meltdown. It was upsetting to this normally happy smiley girl snap and become this whirlwind of torment, uncontrollable and inconsolable. It took 5 hours for her to eventually calm down .
All this was due to the fact she didn’t go to school, have the usual routine of the day. So thank you for having a mid week inset day you have made my life even more stressful.
