I really need advice:
My daughter is in third grade and her teacher, together with all the third grade teachers, has banned parents from bringing siblings to school parties. As I have no family or friends to help out I am now not allowed to attend. I'm so upset and feel really discriminated against. I also have a fifth grader attending the same school, but his teacher doens't have this rule of no younger siblings to the class parties.
Today the school is having the Winter Parties at different times according to the attending grade. I can bring my almost 5 year old preschooler to one of his siblings' party, but not to the other one. I'm really upset. I wrote to my daughter's teacher but she didn't offer any solution. My daughter told me she wants to come home and not to attend the party if I can't be there.
I was thinking to go to the party and have my younger son, the banned one, wait for me outside the door in the hallway where I can see him from inside the classroom. What do you think?
Anyone in a similar situation? Thanks
