I'll be honest I know I can't handle the therapeutic kids, the ones with the major, major problems because I won't be able to give that attention they would need. And those are some of the worst kids ever. Mostly because the system allows them to be. My aunt has therapeutic kids and her daughter was trying to get one girls reading level up, she's already in special ed, and the teacher told her that no one can make her read if she doesn't want to and so did the social worker. Before then the girl was reading maybe a page or so a day. She was getting there. After that she was like they said you can't make me. And that was that. They enable to remain ignorant and dependant on the system and a lot can work the system as well. Another one just leaves the house and takes a walk to call the police and say that my aunt is doing whatever to her because she can't get her way. But those are the special ones that I don't think you can help unless you get them young. Those girls maybe 12 and up.
I can deal with moderate emotional and learning issues. Because I've also noticed along with these kids being doped up they're in special ed. Imagine that.
My hubby is very hesitant about it but this is something I have always wanted to do and he just has to get on board and that's that because my mind will not change. Once we get settled and my kids are in school, maybe have sold a hellva lotta books because it's gonna cost in the thousands then I'll seriously start looking into it.
