My daughter, four, has lately been making up stories that are happening at her pre school. I believe its because she's bored, but I don't know.
We've never had a behavior or listening problem before, in fact, the teachers tell me how polite & smart she is, & how great she is at art & helping. I've heard nothing negative other than she tends to be a pushover at times.
She turned four in January, but they don't have enough room for her in the next room. She always been one of the more advanced students in that room, according to her teachers. This may add to the problem?
She's telling me stories about her BFF biting her, pushing her, and tackling her. She is saying people are pushing her and hitting her and kicking her. She even told me that a teachers was hitting her back hard during rest time. None of these stories are confirmed by the teachers.
I don't know where to go with this. Do I punish or ignore?

When I was really little I used to lie all of the time about school. Turns out it was because I needed to be in more advanced classes and the classes I was in were just too boring for me. Maybe you should look into starting her in kindergarten a little earlier. If you can make a case for it, they'll approve. I skipped third grade because I was too smart for it :P
