Both my daughters just started a new preschool. My 3 year old had a tantrum right before I picked her up and the director was dealing with her when I walked in. No problems with that. I was packing up their things and the director says G put your coat on and hands her my other daughters coat. So she says "no" and before she could say anything else the director reprimands her again and says you will never say " no" to a teacher. "g" tried to explain and say but that's not my coat that's "p" coat. The director said then you should have said "miss r that is p's coat. " ok really she just turned 3 on Monday????
My problem is that I do think my child should be allowed to say no to a teacher or frankly anyone, if she feels something is wrong. She wasn't rude and she didn't get a chance to even say anything once no came out.
I have not said anything to the director yet. I was bullied by a teacher and did speak up for myself. So I am not sure f I am being hypersensitive?
