Welcome to A2K newsocdad.

Seven games into the season and Mo's team is undefeated. Mo isn't "bad" at baseball, in fact he can really hit. He can catch and throw pretty good too. His problem is his wandering mind, which is a problem at school and a problem at home, and it is something we work really hard in dealing with, but between Mr. B and Mo it all comes to a head in baseball.

I think it's because some of the kids on our team are really good and they really want to play and Mr. B sees those kids getting aggravated at Mo. I think Mr. B is torn between wanting Mo to try harder and wanting to protect him from his team mate's criticism.

That's what I'd want to do too Boomerang. Hard place to be in for a Dad. Is it any better these days?

Yeah, I guess. They aren't fighting about it like they were so that's good.

Mo is not an easy child and he is rarely a child at ease. We're working on it though.
