My child is where ?! But she didn't have permission.... EDITED
My daughter's school had play try outs today. She was suppose to go to play try outs right after school and stay there until I picked her up when they were over. The permission slip I signed said that the kids were required to stay until 5pm.
I went to pick her up at 5pm and couldn't find her in among the kids. I was starting to panic when my son said he had to go potty. When we were leaving the bathroom, I heard some one say, "K ! Your mom is here !" She was at the after school club.
She decided not to try out so they gave her the option of calling me or going to after school club. She choose to go to after school club.
When I went to ask the PTO (Parent Teacher Oraanization) Vice president who was in charge because I wanted to find out from an adult WHY my child was somewhere she wasn't suppose to be ! My daughter's reading teacher stuck her nose in and got all snotty with me, so I got all snotty right back. She gave it to me even worse. Told me it wasn't time the and the place to get it all figured out and that I shouldn't get upset and be all rude to her. Oh yes it was ! Why wait until every one is gone ?!?
Principal and the lady who sent my daughter to the after school club, and the lady apologized. They agreed that I should have gotten a phone call letting me know where my child was. I told the principal that if that teacher ever speaks to me that way again, I will file a complaint with the school board.
This is the 2nd time this school year that they have let my 5 year old choose where she wanted to go after school.....without calling me or sending her where she was suppose to go.
My daughter is grounded for the week. I explained to to her that she can't just go where she wants, when she wants. She is not old enough to make such choices and it's scary for us when we can't find her. She is going to write a letter of apology to the principal, the after school club supervisor, and everyone else involved.
We decided to have our daughter be grounded for two days ...no TV or computers until tomorrow night. It's a total of 2 hours she looses. She knows what she did was wrong. She came up to me this morning and said she was sorry and that she should have had an adult call me when she changed her mind. I explained to her that I was scared because I didn't know where she was.
