As I said, we were blessed! Right teacher (a true Angel!) , right situation for us, right timing for my son. Plus... I was hard-core involved!
Each and every situation is different - each kid is different! This is such an adventure no matter what.
Maybe my main advice is - keep an open mind, stand firm with what you KNOW about your kid and be their advocate.
He is a super cool kid and very bright. But if I ever have to watch "Beauty and the Beast" again...
