My 4 year old daughter (will be 5 on Friday) has been on "red" light for the last 7 days at daycare. Her behavior has run from telling the teacher no, yelling in the classroom, not completing her work, etc. It all seems to me to be typical of a 4 year old.
She doesn't behave as bad at home. Yes, we get the occassional No and not minding but not to the extreme that the daycare shows. My husband and I were called to the office of the daycare's director to discuss her behavior. She told us we might consider taking her to a therapist/counselor.
We have used all sorts of disciplines from time outs, taking away privileges and toys, no tv, bed early, and yes even sometimes spanking. The next morning at school, it is the same thing.
I feel as though they are looking at me as a bad mother. Yes, my husband is involved in all this, but he (as a man) isn't as emotional.
Any thoughts, suggestions or HELP?
