Separation Anxiety

Demetria YVonne - posted on 09/24/2015 ( no moms have responded yet )




Before school started, my 5 year -old granddaughter, Maddy was so excited about going to Kindergarten. When she stepped into her classroom she started crying and kept on crying. The teacher told her to "Shut up! I do mot speak to her like that and she is my grandchild. I have taken up Child Development in college and never once were we taught to tell a child to "Shut up! I feel that if you are an educator of children, there are better ways for you to approach a crying child. A teacher should know all children are not alike. Some children may be comfortable and adjust with ease. Others may experience different forms of anxiety. Being in a strange place around a strange woman, telling her to "Shut up! is leaving a lasting impression. Now, she does not want to go school. She could have came to my daughter to discuss what could be done about the crying. I think that is disrespectful and I am going to have a decent conversation with this woman. When teachers act like that, it is hard for the student to learn from them. Depending on outcome, Maddy will be in a new class or new school, maybe even home-school. She is going to learn regardless. Any suggestions or comments appreciated. Very Concerned Grammy
