I finally sent in a post for the Can I sit with you? project. I could probably write one for almost every year of school (including college!), but I decided to go with some highlights from the first grade.
I now feel less of a need to discuss the horror of first grade with a therapist. You should try it!
This is such a great idea. Really.
I hope that it helps somebody going through this kind of emotional torture to see that they are not alone and that it can be overcome by means other than violence.
Nice job on your post.
