People often express their desire for legions of things in the form of desperation. They are desperate for a good night’s sleep or a vacation, desperate for a nice chunk of dark chocolate or a glass of wine, or desperate for a home-cooked meal or an evening out without the kids.
We hear less, however, about the anguish some kids and their families are suffering through in school. Sometimes it sneaks up on them; after all, "she was happily engaged last year, so why should this year be different?" Sometimes they see it coming, but ignore the symptoms; “oh, he'll grow out of it; “It's just ___ class this semester; I made it through.” But sometimes in pure desperation they seek out tools and resources to support their child to leave the toxic environment.
Deep Root Center for Self-Directed Learning is that resource in the St Lawrence Valley. If you know of a family who is desperately searching for educational options, please tell them it is okay to leave school. Deep Root Center presents a multitude of learning possibilities designed to release the pressure and bring sighs of relief not to mention smiles back to their child's face.
