Too negative?

My 3 year old son just started a new school. Has has two weeks under his belt and everyday when I pick him up I ask his teachers "How was he today?" Everyday one teacher says something negative about him ( He throws sand up in the air and watches it fall on the playground, he isn't throwing it at anyone) I have talked to my son about the sand throwing but he still does it, he is 3! I am starting to get annoyed. First of all ok, he throws sand, What are YOU as a teacher doing about it? Second of all she says he is great in the classroom and super smart, smarter than some of the other kids. Should I be annoyed that she always has something negative to say or am I being too mama bear?

Mama bear, definitely.

I'd tell my kid he can't go back if he continues to throw sand.

It sounds like she isn't just saying negative things. She's doing her job as a teacher by telling you everything.

Teachers do not say kids are smarter than other kids. You need to talk to your child about throwing sand. Since he is so smart he should know to stop.

Tell your kid to listen to his teacher. Stop with the sand throwing

Quit asking if it upsets you. At 3 he's being normal. The next time she says something about the sand throwing ask her why it's a problem.

What's wrong with throwing sand in the air?  He's not hurting anyone.

I've noticed being a parent for almost 10 years now. Some teachers tell everything, some don't I like the ones who wouldn't tell me about sand going up in the air for two weeks in a row lol.

Seriously she said that. I was shocked. My mother is a retired teacher and she even said teachers aren't suppose to say that. I am constantly talking to him about his behavior and at the time of conversation he agrees to be not do it anymore and all is good and the next day he does it again. On a serious note, I don't know what to do. I have talked to him, I have been angry, yelled and spanked him. I have made consequences for his actions and he acts like whatever. I don't know what to do anymore. It does get old hearing how my kid constantly does his own thing, I already know it first hand. I need some good advice for headstrong kids.
