So I was at work today and my child's school called and told me that last week and this week, she's been acting up, didn't want to do her work, screaming at the top of her lungs at her teachers and keeps saying she wants to go play in the school's playground. School started last week and every time I go pick her up from school, her teachers tells me that she cries because she can't get her way. I kept having the talk with her that she's not in preschool anymore, she's going to school to learn, make new friends, and she still can go play at recess and gym class. Even her father had a talk with her about this and now she's on punishment for a week because of her behavior in school because she won't listen to us. Not only that, she won't even eat her lunch there because they don't have her fave foods to serve like pizza, chicken nuggets and cheeseburgers and desert, but the healthy foods (she eats healthy at home too). Now I'm just crying because I feel like a bad mother and my child won't do as I say when she's in school and it's the 2nd week of school. I don't know if she's gonna (and I'm praying) that she'll grow from it and get used to being in kindergarten. Plus she has no cousins or neighbors who are the same age as her and she's my only child. Oh yeah, no smart a** answers either, I'm too upset!
