See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
Kiddo had a rough day yesterday, and a rough week last week. She's been acting out a bit in school and yesterday she didn't want to do her school work. I seriously wonder if she's being challenged enough. She comes home with new reading books and she can read them perfectly the first time through with me. I think she needs a tougher reading group but that's besides the point. I was thinking about asking her if she wanted to have a day off just to read, color, have lunch together, and just hang out. So I can really talk to her instead of reacting to yet another bad day. Is this alright or should I just let her slog on and find her own way? She's in kindergarten.
Update: Thank you all so much for the advice! I did decide to let her stay home which worked out for the best since she spent a good chunk of the morning in the bathroom. Poor little thing. While we were coloring yesterday kiddo told me that a little boy shoved rocks down her pants and it made her rump sore. She said it was ok though because according to her friends the kid is known as a "reject". I know kids will be kids and all but this made my blood boil. A little boy has no business anywhere hear the waistband of my daughter's pants. The problem is that I don't know if there is anything I can do about it since it wasn't something that happened this week. Kiddo said it was awhile ago. Do I bring this to the teacher's attention or should I just let it go? I told kiddo that no one has the right to jam anything down her pants and if it happens again she is to immediately tell an adult. The other problem is is that she doesn't know this boy by name since he's in another class. Oh playground drama...
