every parent goes thru this
type of thing. Perhaps learning to deal with negativity at such a young age, will help her later on in life. Children, while the most loved and wonderful creatures on earth can be cruel, especially if they see cruelty at home. On the other hand, this is an excellent time for you to reinforce positivity into the childs life. the two, like everything else has its relation. Positive/negative, love/hate, for every good there is a bad side. you can't learn to deal with one without dealing with the other. Tomorrow, I watch my (sort of) grandson graduate. I say sort of because his grandmother will be there. Her daughter was kicked out when she was young. Does this lady have the right to be there? Of course, because when my daughter brought the girl home to live with us, we reinforced the positive, and when graduation time came for her, her mother was there, as well as about 20 other members of her family. Now, even at such a young age, you have a wonderful opportunity to reinforce the positiveness.

I'm with you....
I, too, have had similar situations in my children's classrooms.  I discuss the incident with my children at length before choosing my line of attack.  Most importantly, I let them know that I will go to bat for them 100% as long as they are completely truthful about what happened.  I learned this lesson the hard way after advocating for one son who THEN told me that they had been involved... Now they know they can come to me for support as long as our communication is honest!

I thought it was wonderful that you got involved, too! It is important to take care of the self esteem and certainly be sure that the right things occur during this development! I don't think I like the idea of a stop sign with a child's name on it! It can have the reverse effect, too! sam

your daughter is fortunate to have a parent that gets involved
many parents dont get involved.  I know of parents that think that their childs school should discipline and that its a daycare for their children instead of getting involved. When kids get reprimanded in school its not always their fault your daughter is lucky she has a parent that listened and got involved.  By being a part of your childs classroom once a week you are able to see what really goes on and to monitor her behavior as well as that of others.
