Going back to the Past – 30th Part
Luis was the funniest, but on the other hand, he gave me more work.
He gave more work because he wanted to continue with his manias of lying, disobeying and didn’t want to commit because he wanted to do things his own way.
Vera, on the other hand was calm and was my companion, because she listened to my teachings.
When vera started kindergarten, she had her difficulties because she did not understand english, So decided to spend a day in school with her, and then she became more confident.
I took advantage of the moments I was in her class to get ideas for the Sunday School for future references.
Vera was so good at school, she learned English and did very well. Then she moved to another school, where Luis would also start studying.
After 3 months, the school called me for a conversation. And so I went.
The school counselor told me about Luis’s situation and that he was being expelled, because they could not keep a child that distracted others in the classroom like Luis was doing.
While I was still in the counseling room, I started crying. The counselor had pity on me and said, “Look, don’t worry, there is ‘such’ a school that can accept Luis, because it’s only for children who have this problem” I was so ashamed of the situation and so angry with Luis, that I didn’t even know what to do.
So I went to look for another school. Then Luis got a place in the first school that Vera went to and he was accepted..
Then after a while, we were transferred to New York. And they had the opportunity to go with us. And in the new school in New York, Luis kept on with the same problem.
Again the teacher called me and even advised me to seek a psychologist. When I heard that from the teacher, I spoke seriously to her: “If my God is real, He will solve this situation. I will not go to any psychologist. Luis has no problem. ”
I couldn’t understand the reason why Luis had difficulties in obeying? I couldn’t understand why he did not obey when I asked him to do something?
Punishment did not work anymore. I had to opt for something else that would teach and change him, but still, nothing!
I often cried because apart from these difficulties with him, I was also having problems with their situation. I had no more hope that I would keep them with me, because these school problems were creating other problems, even regarding their guardianship.
