9 year old gifted with crohns
My nine year old son has been identified as gifted. He also has crohn's disease. He has been offered the opportunity to attend a self contained gifted class in a different school. It is a great opportunity. He thinks the program is great and looks like a lot of fun, but refuses to go because he doesn't want to leave his friends. Will the stress of making him go have an adverse effect on his crohns? The program starts in September. He is due for his first surgery in June. He is currently on Remicade.
I think for his schooling this is a great opportunity for him and this decision is never easy for a 9 year old - they never want to leave their friends. What does anyone think?
