Hello. My name is Zulma. I have a grandson who started kindergarten this year. He has been in trouble for not following directions just about everyday. We are supporting the teacher by following up with consequences at home for undesired behavior. So far taking away toys on a daily basis. ( he is down to not one toy) going to bed right after dinner.
My daughter and I miss interacting with him other than talking about his behavior at school. He doesn't seem to be having a good time at school. He went to pre-school last year and just had a few off days. Nothing like this year. We want him to have a successful year without hurting our loving relationship at home. We have yet to receive a positive note from the teacher. Isn't kindergarten supposed to be a fun filled year with education and positive experiences? My grandson is not perfect by any means. However, he is curious about the world. He asks a lot of questions. He might need to be reminded more than once to finish a task. But not one positive note through all these three long weeks? I would appreciated if you have any ideas. I want to support the teacher, having been a teacher of 25 years myself. BTW his mom is also a teacher. Any ideas are welcome if they will benefit my "kindergarten in trouble child "
