Bogus school compaints

Does anyone else get notes home for a childs behavior that is def not necessary? My daughter got a behavior report sent home for coloring on her hands with marker during art time. Shes 2! I can see if its because she wasnt listening but it didnt state that. I thought it was a little rediculous. Mind you her teacher is 25 and has no kids. What weird stuff has your child been sent home with?

  • no, my child attends montessori school, i have never heard a negative thing about my child (or another other kid there for that matter) out of anyone at the school - AND HE IS NO ANGEL! no notes either, look into a different schooling option imo....

  • hahaha wow....i've worked daycare and it seems sometimes that girls get a power trip from being in charge of children. now i obviously dont know her qualifications, but really? I would have prob just told you about it when she got picked up. But ya thats it. In fact I may have been the one to accidently promote it haha.....maybe she wants to work in a high school and thats where she's starting. IDK I've seen a lot of girls go through a daycare who have absolutely no place in a daycare. They think its an easy job....boy are they in for it! lol

  • My daughter once got a report because she was peed on.
    You read that right. Someone else PEED ON HER and she got a report.
    It was a mistake- the new teacher filled out the wrong report, but still- that was one confusing evening for me.

  • I got several notes home before because my son would not stay on his mat for 2 1/2-3 hours. He is 4 and no longer takes naps. And if he does take a nap it is for an hour, not for nearly 3 hours! Instead of providing him with a quiet activity or book they insisted that he lay there with his head covered with a blanket. (which by the way they can not do according to the regulations for my state). I pulled him out and thank goodness, he is at a better place now.

  • I'd be looking for a new place. anyone who thinks a two year old doing that is a discipline issue has no grasp whatsoever on child development age appropriate behavior.

  • I am a preschool teacher and unless the child repeatedly does a certain behavior or the behavior is harmful to the child or others, I don't even tell the parents. BTW, a 2 yr old can be taught to NOT color on themselves with markers, they just have to be reminded a lot. Also, a degree doesn't mean someone has common sense or knows what they are doing. A degree is a piece of paper. Experience is a much better indication of knowledge, espeically when it come to kids.
