“My son doesn’t like school, he never has – and I’ve finally accepted that I can’t change that”

My son doesn’t like school. The signs started coming when his Montessori teacher said he was a good fit, could do the work, wasn’t disruptive, but, she joked, “is too cool for school.” Then came junior infants. We already had a wonderfully uncomplicated experience with our daughter at the local school. Kitted out in his mini-uniform and shiny Prince Charming hair, we assumed our son would do the same. It was not. At parents’ evening, his teacher said the exact phrase we’ve heard before: “Too cool for school” and ordered us to cut his hair because it’s getting in the way of his concentration.

unfortunately, his cropped man-bob didn’t pique his interest. I could hardly blame him. While we worked, he spent his formative years hanging out with my father – the ultimate man child. Their adventurous days were like an Enid Blyton novel: scraping rocks, climbing trees, building things, repairing motorcycles, riding quads, collecting chestnuts, examining insects. Why on earth would he want to go to school after that?
