So my 13 year old Aspie, got detention today for using the word Hell in his English class. Let me start at the beginning. My son received detention today. I asked him about it and he said that it was because he said “hell.” I sent am email to the principal asking about it. He had no idea.
So my son’s English teacher gave him detention for saying a word that she found offensive.
My son is highly intelligent and speaks his mind with little difficulty. Like most people on the spectrum, he has issues filtering and knowing what is appropriate in social situations.
Oh yeah, and I received a note from the superintendent that he smells bad. He is 13, he has PE first hour. He uses deodorant, I wonder if they could arrange for him to come home right after gym and take a shower so that he doesn’t offend them.
