My daughter just started kindergarten and from day one shes been sent home with a note complaining about some aspect of her behavior. from huffing and puffing and sounding like shes bored to fidgeting too much and not sitting still (she had been diagnosed with adhd and the school has been made aware of this) all the way to taking too many peaches at breakfast.
I wrote a note explaining that my child eats breakfast at home and therefore probably would not eat much if anything of a breakfast there. I also asked for clarification on how she could have taken too much food. even highschoolers do not serve up their own portions. I also explained we were not made aware that she would
be expected to serve her own food and take a reasonable portion, but that we would try to work with her on this. (even though I find it ridiculous and unreasonable)
the teacher then wrote a note saying that she was told not to take any more peaches but did any way and my child needs to respect the teachers when they tell her to do something and mind.
(at this point I'm asking myself why didn't someone take way the serving spoon or lead her away from the serving line? shes 5 afterall shes not always going to do as shes told)
she was made to change clothes at school. the clothes then went missing and were brand new. I contacted the school who told me they gave them to her to take home and they did not put them in her book bag so i requested that from now on they put the clothes her bag and the teacher sent home yet another note saying that I needed to talk to my daughter about not taking things out of her backpack.
my daughter frequently comes home upset and crying and says the teacher does not like her.
I feel like shes being singled out and I'm getting very frustrated with the lack of responsibility the school seems to take and the unrealistic expectations they have of the children. I am currently pregnant with my second child and I'm trying to not let the hormones and emotions get the better of me. am I totally wrong to be upset? or does it seem like this teacher may not like my child afterall?
