I was talked to by my dd's pre-k teacher. Apparently, my dd doesn't follow directions and is misbehaving in class. She is like this at home as well. She can be the sweetest thing , but she can also be so bratty. I felt so stupid and embarrassed.  I left feeling very upset, like I'm not doing a good job in teaching her. I do my best, but apparently it's not enough.   Sorry, just venting.

Awwwslapping forehead i know how you feel my older son did that to me 1 time & honey i felt like the world had dropped down on me. It was a horrible feeling. Fany it will be ok i cried sooo much i will never forget when he came home that day. We had a looooooonnnnnnggggg talk & girl i cried so he could know how much it hurt me to be disappointed by his behavior in school. He NEVER I MEAN NEVER had that happen again. I don't know if it was the disappointment he seen in my eyes or what but ever since that day my DS brought home straight A'S & IN THE HONOR ROLL! I pray right now that she straightens up for you. Kids just test us Fany. You give her your piece of mind when you are ready. Everything will be ok.

DONT FEEL LIKE THAT MAMA , EVERY KID HAVE THEIR MOMENTS.  ONE THING TRY THIS AND SEE IF IT WORKS FOR YOU, WHEN SHE COMES HOME 1. DONT SHOW HER YOU'RE MAD, 2. ASK HER TO SHOW YOU WHICH ARE HER FAVORITE TOYS. 3. ASK HER TO PICK UP 2 THAT SHE LOVES THE MOST FROM WHATEVER SHE BRINGS YOU. 4. TELL HER TO PICK UP THE TOYS AND HAVE HER GO WITH YOU TO THE KITCHEN AND TELL HER TO THROW THOSE TWO TOYS IN THE RECYCLING BIN.  SHE WILL CRY SO BE PREPARE AND THEN TELL HER IF TOMORROW SHE MISBEHAVES SHE WILL PICK UP 2 MORE AND THROW THEM OUT.  OF COURSE IM TELLING YOU THE RECYCLING BIN BECAUSE AFTER SHE 'S GONE YOU CAN PICK IT UP AND HIDE IT UNTIL YOU SEE SHES FOLLOWING DIRECTIONS AND IS BEHAVING AT SCHOOL.  HOPE THAT WORKS FOR YOU.

 Marlene, thank you.  I'm just worried because she's only 4. Is this a phase or is this my future? I just put her in time out and now she's fallen asleep. I would never had pulled this crap on my parents!  I'm glad your son is going so well!

 why don't you ask the teacher to give you a note on her progress of the day... If it's bad/not so good, take something away from her at home. No tv time once she comes home or no toys that day. Something like that... Josiah had the same issue a bit while in preK. Some in Kinder and 1st too.. Stick to it, don't let it slide, she will understand. You get in trouble or misbehave at school, you will be punished at home.

I understand how you feel, I'm having issues with my daughter in school. No matter how much we punish her, it doesn't seem to be getting any better. She's my stubborn one so she fights for EVERYTHING and anything. 

I might do karma's idea :)
