Other children/parents at daycare?

There's a VERY difficult little boy at my daughter's daycare. I have a very easy-going child so I don't really understand the in's and out's of dealing with children like this, but the other day... after several weeks of cold weather, the temperature warmed up and the teachers wanted to take my daughter's class outside for a walk. They got all the kids bundled up and this little boy refused to put on his jacket and threw a tantrum, so the teachers simply took ALL of the other kids out of their winter clothes and they didn't go for a walk. I've ignored the horrible habits of this kid and broken my daughter of them as they come about, but I feel like this is the final straw. When my child doesn't get to go outside... it's starting to affect my child's well being. Should I approach this kid's mom? The headmaster of the daycare? Or, do I simply ignore this child running the show?

Agreed. If anything, they should drop him into another class...maybe even a younger class...to be watched, while everyone else goes outside to play. Talk to the teacher.

I would talk to the day care provider. Tell them about this and any other incidents you know about. If this child is such a problem that the other kids can't do thing s they should be able to then the day care should ask that child's parents to find other care.

i agree with maggie - it's not fair on the class and not something that should happen but that's the teachers fault not the mother it's up to them to control him while he's at daycare.

You should talk to the teacher first, then the head of the daycare if needed. The other kids shouldn't have to be punished for one kid's behavior
