so I work at this new school and we tried it out with my youngest in my class… All good so far, except that he’s the oldest in the clas la with some kids more than 2 years younger… Which for a 4 year old means a lot….

So today is the day I am deciding to move him to his old school without kids his own age that he can relate to 

But this does worry me…. Again I’m feeling overwhelmed… I’m pulling him out because he’s the oldest because he’s not eating the food (which is all vegan) and we cannot I guess adjust to me being his teacher? I guess if there were more kids his age we could do different stuff.  Imagine that a 2,5 year old has different interests than a 3 year old, and even more different than a 4 or 5 year old… 

I can understand that the boss wanted alternative education,  but we do kinda have to keep in mind the developmental needs and particularities of each age

Maybe it’s just me feeling out of control, because I don’t know how I am going to manage the actual day by day… Like getting the kids to school and picking them up wheb the school ends…given that one gets out at 4pm and technically I am at work till 5 or 6… If I have to pay somebody to pick him up … That’s extra money… Which ad it is I know I don’t have….

So I kinda think I should look for another job, one that pays more so I can afford to have them picked up if I need to…

Ok, getting quite anxious just writing about this…. I don’t know how I am going to make it work…

My boss promised that I could have some extra classes.. But she’s dealing with advertising and stuff and so far there’s no one signed up… That could mean extra money also extra time, but with extra cash I could afford to think of alternatives to having the kids picked up from school 

I may just be worrying for nothing or maybe my worries are warranted 

One way or another we’ll have to make it work we’ll have to be ok

Respecting Emotion & Regulating Emotion: An Introduction to Checking the Facts

Emotions are like a sixth sense because like sight, sound, taste, touch, and smell, they give us important information about our environment that we need to survive. What makes emotions so special is that they help us to act quickly when logical thought is too slow for us to engage in problem-solving. (See Situations below.) However, for people who may be unusually emotionally reactive, sensitive, or have learned to judge or invalidate their emotional sixth sense from culture, values, gender roles, parents, family, loved ones, etc., emotions may not always cause the expected effective response. Therefore, dialectical behavior therapy came up with the skill checking the facts to help us figure out if our emotional responses fit the facts and intensity of a situation and whether an unwanted or distressing emotion needs skills toward accepting and changing or skills toward accepting and tolerating.
