me and my son got onto the 324 bus around 12:30pm yesterday with some teen lads (on helme lane meltham). When we was getting off the bus in huddersfield they thought it would be funny to shout boo and bang at my son who was wearing his ear defenders. I turned around and told them not to ever do that to someone wearing ear defenders but they just laughed and bogged off.
Liam has sensitivity issues (on the lines of autism). He has to wear them because alot of sounds freak him out. Loud sounds to him are like nails on a blackboard to us. When liam has his ear defenders on i don’t really think about what people think. It’s just common sense not to shout at a child wearing them just to see if they work (and he can hear you with them on) . If he was not wearing them and someone shouted boo liam’s eyes roll back and he blacks out.
sadly alot of people don’t know alot about autism or any special needs – disabilities.
i want him to feel like a normal little man not a joke.
for sometime I have notice a big change in my son. he spends a lot of time in his room, seems to be down, tells me he’s stupid and shows anxiety. On top of that it’s been very hard to get him up in the morning and getting him ready for school has been hell. he has ripped trousers – shoes – bookbags, tried to fall down the stairs, keeps picking his nose at night and rubbing the blood all over him and other stuff.
on the 21st of this month I went up to school around 2:40pm and saw Liam’s class outside doing PE. I had a look about to see if I could see Liam and I found him in the shelter with some girls but no helper (he is post to have one to one). Liam was poking a boy on the head on the other side of the shelter. The boy went into the shelter, picked Liam up by his jumper, pushed him up to the wall and started to smash Liam’s face in. The girls tried to pull the child off Liam but with no luck. Thank god the PE teacher (a male) came to help save Liam. he moved the boy off Liam..but by then liam was on the floor screaming. oh and if you want to know what his teacher was doing. PLAYING CRICKET WITH THE OTHER CHILDREN AND NOT WATCHING THE FIGHT. she did go up to Liam after 10mins later but it looked like she was getting Liam to apologize to the boy who just went for his face. After PE I went up to the teacher and said that I saw everything (I was in shock and holding in my tears). she said well Liam was poking the boy and that he had been a wet sponge all day. soon as she said that I saw fire in my eyes and shouted LOOK AT HIS FACE ITS BLACK AND BLUE but she said oh that’s because he been crying all day. Liam was next to his teacher and looked so scared and shaken up…she even tried to ask Liam what had happened but he would not talk. I think she worked it out that I was pissed off because she wanted to get back to class very fast. When it was home time 2 girls came out with him because he was in a right mess. He came up to me and said I’m I in trouble and I said no.
The next day I rang up school and said that Liam will not be coming back to school until the 3rd June after what I saw yesterday and also it didn’t help that liam did not want to come back. The headteacher said she is doing a report and that the child who did this will not be in until the 3rd. So this means the child who did this gets two weeks of holiday and i’m dealing with a child who has anxiety and lost his confidence. So i told the head that i was gonna deregister him on the 3rd. well soon as I said that she went on about how they were going to sort out Liam’s feet, speech and going to ring up other people. There was also a chat about how Liam has been for the past months (what they should have told me right away) I also was told I was going to get a phone call back at the end of the day BUT NOPE NOTHING ALL WEEK.
since being home schooled me and my mother have learned Liam can read but can’t write the alphabet, can’t spell , can’t write numbers and didn’t even know how to count on his fingers..
We are working on it but soon as he works that he be getting on track. I have notice a big change and its so lovely to see him smile again.
never ever join npower….. was on the phone with them for nearly a hour because this is the 2nd time they have not taken out my 3 month bill (paying two months this time). they said that my direct debit had stopped because i’m changing to a new energy Company (monthly pay what i wanted). but like i said to the woman but i don’t bloody have a direct debit with you I’M ON CREDIT and the only reason you have not taken out the money is because i’m sick of your crap and leaving ….just take out the money or i will have to get a solicitor involved because this is a sodding joke…after waiting on hold for 15mins they soon took out the credit…
NEVER EVER join Npower…they mess with your 3monthly bills , will send you letters saying you owe them money WHEN YOUR IN BLOODY CREDIT 😡 , wait in all day for them to come round but don’t show up. 3 years of this crap.
its odd how when i was a little lass the uk would make a big deal out of bonfire night. it would be all over the tv and i can remember even my school setting off fireworks. But sadly now at the age of 28 i have noticed that…
1)shops are doing nothing about the 5th on there windows or even in the shops.
2) school’s don’t talk about why we have bonfire night.
3) supermarkets are to scared to even sell fireworks because of dumb people.
liam hates fireworks so we are staying in tonight so if you are out tonight be safe and don’t do nothing stupid.
