When my older son started school, he had Go Ays Go Colorado Avalanche signature shirt behavior issues due to ADHD. When my then-wife went to the school to address them, she was spoken to as if she was a kid herself. When I went along, they were much more deferential and listened to me. Our son was constantly being called out by the school for things that other kids did, but for the other kids, they let it slide. We were living in a really good school district, and the parents weren’t particularly welcoming. We became friends with another mixed-race couple whose son had similar problems with the school. They ended up moving away, though.
