The IF topic this week was rather apt when it came. Thursday was an emotionally unsettling day when I discovered my son missed the school bus and had left his mobile home. When I got to his school he was no where to be found. I was at my whits end as I drove the 5km home thinking that if I did not spot him on the back road home the next stop would be the police. About 1 km from our house I spotted him walking coolly along the road. Besides wanting to throttle him all I could say is thank God he was okay, and knew the way home.
On Friday I was still shell shocked and hence the art therapy.
We had a long chat with him about going to the teachers, school guard or security guards for help instead of being so self-reliant. The teacher actually gave the whole class of 7 year olds a talk on what to do if one is left behind.
