I am looking for some help on my daughters behavior. I know all kids are different but any ideas on what we can work on are much appreciated!
My daughter started a new 4K school this year. She consistently misbehaves that first day going back. Usually Monday or Tuesday. So much so that today she spent half her morning in the principals office.
Let me start out by saying my daughter is very strong willed. Her father and I did not stay on top of her like we should have when she was younger (we recognize this) but we have really been coming down on her (sitting in the corner, time outs, not getting to go places, etc). She has consequences for the tantrums and the crying.
She has become a whole different kid this last month. It's amazing. So good and listens well. Except at school. I don't know what it is. I mean- they are much more structured and have ways that things need to be done.
I just don't know what to do! I feel we are strict at home and she isn't always allowed her way so what is it about school that has her acting up? I don't want to have the child who no one wants to teach and I don't want to make the teachers / kids day miserable as well.
Any suggestions would be lovey. Thank you all! :)
