1st class at Fusion Academy

Last Saturday was Reese's first class at the Fusion Academy. He was very excited. So much so he was twice more hyper than his usual self. He was running from one end of the drama room to the other end non stop! When we left him, we saw that he just run about doing his own thing. At one point, he ran up the stage and claimed to be Jesus and when they asked him to come down, he claimed that he is now in heaven!! When he was asked to hold hands with the others to sing... he preferred to sleep on the floor or just kept running from one end of the drama room to the other end. Both hubby and I didn't want to see anymore. We left shaking our heads.

He had fun and wanted to go again. He was singing the new song he learned throughout the day. We left for Penang that afternoon. That night, I got a call from one of the directors of Fusion and was told that they need to keep Reese on a trial basis as the teacher is having a difficult time controlling Reese and thus causing the other children to follow his actions. She said that he was very very intelligent and able to imagine certain things that are way beyond his age. He also enjoys his drawing session but was too hyper. She even asked me about his diet (he was extremely hyper)! Hai... I am really worried. Reese is a very individualistic person. I think it's going to be difficult for him to join activities that involved other children! Thank God his school teachers are patient enough to deal with him. I believe, if he goes to other Kindy, they would probably have rejected Reese.

We can't wait to see the developmental pediatrician(Appointment 3rd August). We really need guidance. It is really not easy to raise a gifted child.

Reckon all of us get the comment that our kids are hyper. Even though he did not really follow what he was supposed to do...at least he was not shy.

HOpe you get some answers soon.
