Ok, so I'm just wondering what everyone's take is on an incident that happened yesterday at school involving my 5yr old son. So, I was looking through his papers in his bookbag last night and I found a note from the teacher stating that he had choked on a piece of food and had to have the heimlich maneuver performed on him. I was upset about this for 2 reasons. #1- he has some fine & gross motor skill delays and is supposed to have a monitor during lunchtime b/c he tends to shove huge amounts of food in his mouth at once & they are aware of this-where were they? How did this happen? #2- he could have died! I think I should have gotten a call advising me of the incident that way if I had any questions I could ask them. Now I have to sit & stew with this all weekend! So, am I overreacting? How would you guys react to this situation?
