Ok my 2 precious boys were homeschooled, I loved it, and struggled too so that at it's worst I wished they were at school every second day, but not at it's best. I think that is how it goes sometimes. Then they both really wanted to try school. My oldest is gifted with Aspergers and I thought it would be good for his socialisation because we struggled to find friends for him with homeschooling and he was constanly complaining about not having enough friends or wanting to see the couple he had all the time. It has been good for him socially. He loves having kids his age around and is learning valuable lessons about fitting in, which he may need to be "succesfull" in a non aspie world. I still prefer homeschool. Fitting in is something I never cared for, although I see its merits. Here is the problem. Since going to school he has started chewing his fingernails and when there is no nail left he chews the skin sometimes untill he draws blood. When on Holiday it gets much better, but when at school it is incessant! Boy no 2 is happy peacfull and well behaved on holiday when at school grumpy, wingy, cries more, temper and hard to be around. Both boys insist they want to stay at school and are happier there. What would you do??? Any comments??? I just want the best thing all round.
I would look at putting in some anxiety management strategies, it sounds like even though he enjoys school and is developing social contacts it may be a little more stressful for him that he is articulating.
