My son is in 3rd grade. He is having some difficulties, and I met with his teachers to conference. His math teacher is very stern, that's fine. But the first thing she expressed concern with is that Sam will leave to use the bathroom once during her hour and a half with him. She feels this is unnecessary, and went so far as to suggest bringing in a 'specialist' to talk with me about it not being necessary. I cut her off and said we will discuss this at a later point. I wanted time to gather my thoughts. And I was there to discuss his education, not his bathroom habits. I am uncertain if this should even be an issue. So please, help me gather my thoughts. Should I suggest to Sam he learn to hold it during his time in her class? My concern is the class is during that post breakfast spike time...(which is not what I am posting this to discuss ) His homeroom teacher expressed that it is not an issue during her times with him. Thank you.
