Dear Mom and Dad,
Wow this school and learning thing is a lot tougher than I ever thought. I have been asking myself lately.. why is it so tough for me to learn like everyone else?
This question usually makes me quite sad and I can see the same question makes you quite scared. I’m not entirely sure why you feel scared but maybe if I knew I would understand why its the only thing we talk about or the only thing you want to help me with.
What I have realised is that my brain works differently to yours, dads and some of my friends. Well Zac and I are very similar, he says also wishes other would stop pushing him to learn something in a certain time. Some things he learns quick and some things he needs more time to learn.
When I am feeling this same pressure I really struggle to calm down and I just want to scream. So I’m wondering is there another way we could learn things?
My sister helped me write this letter and I’m very happy that you had her for me.
I love you.
Your son, Sazi
