Viewing it as "tattling" or "babying" doesn't help me meet their needs. YMMV. I'm not so much concerned with the needs of some public school teacher as I am with my children's needs. There won't be any public school teacher out there solving your child's needs. I am not saying that...
I suggest going for earings that have absolutely no nickel in them because nickel allergies are very common. Even the earrings that are for sensitive ears have nickel and some of the cheap gold or silver ones do also. There are some nicer stores in the mall that pierce ears and sell higher end earrings made of different metals. People get infected from having their ears done by professional ear piercers also, my friend got a nasty infection from a place that is...
If it is a beginning swimming lesson you would think that they would be teaching the children how to swim not expecting them to come in knowing how to swim. Is this the first time she has ignored the teachers instructions or is it an ongoing thing? If it is ongoing then that may be why they are asking you to take your child out of the class and not the other little girl her size and they are probably just making up the requirement that she must know how to swim to be in...
I think that you should complain about the treatment that your child is receiving and find another teacher or another center for him even if it is more convenient not to. There is no way that he is getting quality care from a teacher that tells a two year old that his butt would be "red and on fire" if she were his. If that is what you know she said imagine for a few minutes what you don't know she has said. I don't think that having no official discipline policy is...
It is very normal to have to keep repeating yourself and picking him up and moving him away ten times before it sinks in for a little while. I think that what you should be doing is looking into changing your views about how old a child should be to "obey" you and what age appropriate activities are. Exploration is what your child is geared to do. My dd didn't start to follow simple directions until much closer to a year and a half and it took a lot longer than that for...
This seems like a pretty small thing. I would ignore it or at most tell the child to walk away and find somewhere else to be when you see it happen.
My brother and I worked things out between ourselves when my mother got tired of the constant emotional drain and it was liberating for all of us. He gave as well as he got and my mother was a much calmer and better mother so it benefitted all of us. When I was ten she told us we were to old to hit and needed to talk things out and that also worked for us. I was also much better prepared for public school because I learned how to resolve things one way or another at...
My dd has been able to keep herself clean for the most part when she eats for a long time now. She is four and a half and it probably helps that she goes to a school that does family style eating and teaches kids how to clean up from a very young age. The kids I work with in the preschool classroom I am in also keep clean and don't make huge messes for the most part also. I do notice that peer pressure has a lot to do with it. The kids that came in messy eaters at...
I would discuss this with the daycare teacher also. If her yelling is scaring your child she needs to comfort your child. Providing comfort to a scared child is part of her job. If the teacher is otherwise good I don't think this is something to move her out of the class over. You never know what the next teacher is going to be like. She will get used to her teacher raising her voice, but while she is doing that the teacher needs to explain to her what is going on...
I asked our supervisor if she had gotten any reactions of this sort and she said that we haven't at our center and suggested that I write again to let you know that you are allowed access to the Mental Health Specialist at your center and can request that your child's teacher gets an appointment if it seems necessary. She also said that it may be that the reaction is so strong because it is triggering something that he has experienced. There is ateacher/parent video that...
