My son has been terrified of snakes now for the past week. He has never had this fear before. he is tiptoing when he leaves the house and won't play outside in the yard. He keeps saying he is scared because the teacher said snakes are relly dangerus.
I emailed the teacher and this was I got (I copyed and pasted)
"We had a class talk about rattlesnake safety this week because the bus aide said she saw one on the east playground earlier this week. We discussed how we don't touch snakes and to tell an adult if we see one. We also talked about not putting our hands where we can't see them."
My son is so scared right now and I think the teacher may have gone too far. We have also lived in our neighborhood for 5 years and NEVER seen a rattler. We live in the city, so it isn't a worry. Rattlesnakes don't come into the city. I am mad the teacher has made my son so upset. What do I do to calm? Do I talk to the princple?

I agree you should talk to the principal. Make sure that teacher doesn't say anything else that could scare a child. Make sure she doesn't teach the kids to wash their hands. That way no one will have a germ phobia. Plus, we can't have her telling kids not run around with scissors. Then kids might be afraid of scissors or even running!! This teacher must be stopped!
Just kidding... but really, your son is five. He's scared of snakes. He'll get over it.
