if your child is in full day pre-k, how do they behave after you pick them up? after pick-up time, we generally spend some time in the courtyard space outside his montessori school with some of his classmates. my 4.5 year tends to be very loud and goofy in his play, at times. today i watched couple of moms giving my son "that look" as if to convey 'look at that unruly kid'. i don't know...he's spending 7 hours in school following the rules, so maybe he wants to get some sillies out, as it were...i do give him a warning everytime he gets loud, but it's not always met with compliance. background, one of these glaring moms has a daughter, who, most of us have observed, gets other kids in trouble by crying unnecessarily about everything. i have had a minor run-in with her. so maybe she reacts to that.
but, i want to be proactive if he is indeed behaving unacceptably. so, please do share. how are your kids after-school.
