My daughter goes out to be supervised by a teacher in school. Her classmates are always asking her where she is going. I keep telling her to say "it's not your businesses." Any other suggestions?

Hi debra18,

How about having her say "The teacher is helping me"?
Which is true!

warmly,

Kali

Hi debra18,
we tried to tell school and classmates as much as needed but not more. School was informed totally but classmates were told that our d has a digestive metabolism disease by the teacher. So nobody asked anything when she went home for lunch ("special diet") or missed sports or did not go to school for some days.
The kid needs to have a name. If you seem to keep it top secret, they are curious and the talking starts.
