I work at the day care center where my 18 month old goes. I don't work in his room. I have sat back quietly and watched how the toddler teacher acts and speaks to 1 year olds. She yells! Recently, my son and another little boy kept fighting over the same toy. She removed my son from the classroom and put him in a highchair. No toys, nothing to snack on, just to sit there. He was just outside her door (its a half door), but she couldn't see him and left him with the teacher who was setting up lunch. So there was no interaction with him. After 5 minutes, realizing he was the only one out and was not going to be painting I gave him some toys. After another 5 minutes I asked the our boss why my son was sitting there all alone. She said she didn't know and asked his teacher. His teachers reply was that she didn't want to deal with him and the other child who was still playing in the classroom. She said he could stay in the high chair until lunch which was another 15 minutes away. Our boss removed my son and put him in the infant room to play. The teacher was not reprimanded or talk to. My boss' reply to me was that she wasn't going to say anything. I am extremely stressed about the whole situation. I know it is hard being a parent and working there at the same time. But am I being over sensitive about the situation? What would you do as a parent coming to pick up your 18 month old child and he's been left in a high chair with nothing because his teacher doesn't want to deal with him?Answer Question
