i was a parent on a field trip today to the domes (a garden field trip)
daughter is in 2nd year of kindergarten (she is six this Summer)
i was in charge of five kids
kids were fine
last 30 minutes, my daughter was getting "squirrely"
and she was over simulated (a.k.a.... sensory autism overload)
(she is in autism spectrum)
teacher told my daughter in front of me.....
" remember what i told you, if you can not behave, mom will not be able to come on any more field trips, or come to school (to do parent volunteer things) and be in the classroom"
i do not have problem with teacher trying to correct behavoir, or using taking something away for unwanted behavior
i feel like teacher should have used another "currency" like ...no free play time, or you will go on yellow (they have green light, yellow light, red light system at school)...but NOT use 'mom time' as currency
threatening to not let mom be a parent at field trips or school functions..to me was not ok
daughter already has issues with daddy not being around, so threatening to take away mom time contingent on her actions... to me, just not good currency

She is picking on what your daughter cherishes the most, YOU, in a child's mind this can be detrimental so using you as a pawn to correct this behavior was way over the line...
