Forgive me if I've posted about this:
I got a call that Sam had told another little boy at recess "I hate you!"
They were playing games during recess. Sam's team lost. Other boys team won. So I got phone call after school that I needed to talk to Sam.
The teacher talked to him after recess. Told him it was mean, not nice, made him apologise... etc.. Other little boy, didn't cry or anything (he is youngest boy of 3). She said to me "hate is a 4 letter word'. (which I keep thinking about!)
But the more I think about the ridiculousness of this phone call, the more upset I get.
Really? These boys are 6 years old. Hate is NOT a 4 letter word... F*ck is, S#it is... The boy didn't even care. Sure, it wasn't nice.. but Sam was reprimanded at school. I have to get a phone call about this? Do I have to talk to him AGAIN? Is this really somthing that warrants intervention?!
A GF of mine got a call from the school her son was playing with some other boys on the bus and her son accidentally hit one of the boys with his hat. Not mean (as told by the school) just playing around. The other boy was not hurt, he was fine. BUT, they wanted my GF to talk to her son about not swinging his hat around. How he needs to sit quietly on the bus. He is 6.
What do you think?
Do you think schools are fogetting that kids are KIDS? That they are 6 years old?!
I just think this stuff is so pointless.... why are they worrying about THIS kind of stuff???
Is there something I'm missing?
