Today after school Younger Boy called me SOBBING.

What on earth is wrong?

He FORGOT to go to the learning academy...ON THE FIRST DAY.

He hates to make a mistake.  He hates to forget things. 

Now that may sound crazy considering the amount of things he just doesn't do and the homework he skips.

This kid is PARALYZED by making a mistake.  In his "world" it is much easier to not do something than to do some of it wrong.

I wish I could say I don't understand, but I do.  More than he knows.

It's okay that he missed.  I wish it wouldn't have been the first day, because I suspect that is when they set all of the ground rules, but it will be fine.  I am not mad.

Prayers for Younger Boy to work on giving himself some grace.
