I will try to keep this brief. Her teacher had a talk with me this morning. This is probably the 3rd time. The problem started about 6 months ago when a new little girl came to the school. My husband I noticed the change with our daughter right away. We have talked about it with her and told her to be herself not like anybody else because that’s not good, and it will get her in trouble. We have taken away privileges and given her time out. I feel her teacher has been reluctant (understandable) to make a correlation between my daughter’s behavior when this little girl is in school and when she is on vacation. Well this morning her teacher could not hold it anymore, she told me straight out, but not in a way to blame or talk badly about the other child. My daughter is following and exhibiting the disruptive and disrespectful behavior of this child. Her teacher is wonderful and has been with her since she started attending her faith based preschool at 2 1/2, she knows her very well and loves her. I don’t want this for her and I don’t know how to fix it. Does anyone know of a book I can read to her about being a follower? How do I get her to stop following? HELP!!
