This year I sent my daughter to a private catholic preschool; we are not catholic but it seemed like the best choice for our area. This year we have had some good with some bad, which I completely understand. However, today my daughter comes home upset because she had mass at school and apparently she was looking around, behind her, above her, everywhere else but forward. Her teacher did not appreciate this so when the got back to class she moved her name to basically what they call the naughty list. She then had to sit in the room and most of the kids in her class were given popcorn to snack on but the teacher refused to let my daughter as well as a few others kids have any. The teachers made them basically watch the other kids eat it but said they couldn't. I was/am very angry about this because I don't feel this is an appropriate for of punishment for 3 and 4 year olds. I am fairly strict with my daughter and I certainly do want her to be well behaved and listen. That being said I have always had very good feedback from previous teachers, babysitters, and friends about my daughter's conduct so this really has hit a nerve. Do you think I'm over reacting?
