Is the child your teacher knows the same child you know?

I'm always surprised to hear teachers talk about what DS is like, because the picture they paint of him is very different from what I see at home. Apparently at school he's quiet, hard working, and polite all the time, to the point they're surprised when he does act up. I want to know how I can bring that kid home once in a while, preferably when it's time for him to do his chores and study...

  • either that or they sure like to paint a pretty picture for my sake. I always wonder why the boys aren't this nice when they are at home. Granted the teachers don't have to spend every waking moment with them and have alot of other kids and activities demanding their time. So the social situation is a bit different.

  • My daughter is the same at school and home. With the exception that she and her sister will argue at home but not at school... but I think that is because there are no longer other children to pre-occupy them, lol.

  • I have the opposite issue. Mine is an angel at home and everywhere else except school. Then, he becomes the back talking monster.

  • I know what you mean. When my daughter started kindergarden last year she had a hard time, when she would get home I would try to do her homework with her but she would get frustrated and throw it away. She struggled most of the year and when I would go in to talk to the teach I would get GREAT reports on how she was the teacher's favorite. Always working hard and trying her best never showed any frustration like she did at home. My girl is GREAT and very sweet but I was just worried about her frustration and how she would stop trying. Her teacher was shocked and said that she never did that at school and she always talked to other people about my daughter being the best student ever. I was blown away, I think the teacher wanted to have me arrested for talking badly about her favorite student, LOL. Her teacher even had a special meeting with her new 1st grade teacher. How the K-teacher has my son, she is in trouble now, lol.
