“Refrains From Socializing”

I finally got around to checking out my kids’ reports cards yesterday. Jack’s progress report is full of line items marked “satisfactory” or “concern.”

But check it out! Jack gets high marks on the “Refrains from socializing” item.

I’m not sure whether to laugh or cry. (I might have laughed semi-uproariously.) It goes to show that sometimes our kids are so far off of the norm that the norm doesn’t even apply. Honestly, if this item were marked “concern,” I would probably throw Jack a party and cancel his speech therapy.
