Would you say something to the teacher?

My 3rd grade DD was just talking to my son. She said "You should take a water bottle instead of a juice pack or indeed." 0.o
I said "What are you talking about?" She starts to explain that water is healthier and more refreshing... I said "No, juice pack or indeed? What does that mean?"
She says her teacher told her that saying "whatever" is rude and to use "indeed" instead.
I agree that "whatever" can be used in a rude way but when it's not being used in a rude way "indeed" would not fit the sentence. They don't have the same meaning.
I wouldn't have a problem with the teacher banning the word "whatever" in her classroom but I do have a problem with her confusing my DD by having her use a different word that does not have the same meaning.

Would you say something, ask for clarification, to the teacher or just explain it to your child and leave it alone?

They will learn soon enough. I wouldn't say anything.

I'd leave it alone. It's not life altering.

Clearly she told them to use it in place when the rude way was used. Your kid just didn't understand....clarity with your spawn is the only thing needed

Did the teacher tell her to use indeed?

It sounds like a misunderstanding.

Maybe the teacher means is when another student is telling them a story that they don't care about it's nicer to say "indeed"? I'd leave it alone though, she'll figure it out.
