My son is a normal 6 year old kindergartener, but sometimes he has difficulty in school with talking, fidgeting etc,,,everyday he goes to an afterschool program, and everday for the past 3 months his after care teacher has some complaint about him,,,I spoken to his regular teacher, and she said that although a boy, my son is a delight for her to teach. I was to the point I even asked a question on here if I should have him tested for ADD. Well, last Friday came and when I picked up my son he started crying in the car, and said the after care teacher stood him up in front of the other kids, and said Don't act like Billy because he shouldn't be in Kindergarten, he needs to stay in preschool because he can't shut up! I rolled back in and asked to speak to her, I said does he ever do anything right, she said no,, I went to the principle yesterday, and filed a complaint, she was shocked that he was embarassed that way, she also said that my son is one of the best students they have, although relieved, was really mad that she was picking on him, I have sat in just to observe, and can't see a problem other than being 6. Yesterday, when I came, she said he was "somewhat better".. I held up my hand, and she continued on that she thought I should not have informed the principal, I asked my son to wait in the hall, and I let her have it, I said I know that he will misbehave as all kids, but do you realize you have never said 1 nice thing about him? I will expect to from now on that I will hear the things he did right, as well as wrong....I can't pick him up and we only have a month left of school, do you think I should have just shut up,,,,now from 3;30 until I pick him up, I wonder what she is treating him like!Answer Question

I think you did the right thing. This makes me remember when I was in 3rd grade and my teacher made an example of me in front of the class....so similar except that it was because I couldn't get my books out of my desk drawer. It was stuck. She blamed me and made me put my desk in the corner and told the class that I was a messy kid because my desk drawer was stuck...and that they should not be like me. Of course,most f the class made fun of me---they were encouraged by the teacher. Bullies.I cried ,sitting in the corner, and at night I started walking in my sleep ...so my Dad talked to the principle about the issue. The teacher was reprimanded but I have not been comfortable with teachers since then. It can scar a kid.
Good luck with your little guy.
