My daughter is in second grade.
We moved over the summer, so its a new school.
They started back monday.

The teacher in front of other parents and other students sought me out to complain about my daughter!!


Apparently my daughter does not write he full name on her papers fast enough.

My daughter was embarassed and just wanted out of the crowd

Advice?

When did she seek you out? After school?

At dismissal. My daughter walks, and it was pouring, so i had to pick her up from the cafeteria. The teacher was waiting on me

Tell her that you don't appreciate her having that conversation in front of everyone, that your child is in a transition period & ask if she has some suggestions to help her.

I wrote a note saying I perfer to discuss my daughter via a conference, email text. I tried to keep it short and polite.

? In front of other parents and students.

Maybe I am over reacting?

She seemed annoyed with my daughter and my daughter was upset

Should I address it or just let it roll off my back?

Quoting Anonymous 3: By all means punish the teacher for trying to discuss your child with you.

Calm down. She was only letting you know there was a problem, and she probably wants to get it corrected early. She can't wait all day for your DD to write her name. And many schools require kids to use their legal name, not nicknames, especially in the younger grades. They may call her Beth, but she needs to know how to write Elizabeth. This is problem with kids (and parents) nowadays! Everyone is so damn sensitive about every little thing. Tell your kid to suck it up and write the name YOU gave her!

Like making snarky comments when a mom asks for opinions on a mom site?

You are absolutely right in that she should not complain to you about your dd in front of others!   I fear she may be in the wrong profession if she is complaining already.  And about such a minuscule thing!  :-/

Look at those people for 15 seconds.  Say, "And your point is?  She does not go by Elisabeth-she goes by Beth."  Turn around and walk away
