My 10-year-old son has always been fidgety in school and talks when he shouldn't at times. Today was one of those times. There are a few boys like him and today he and his friend were chatting too much, my son probably doing most of the chatting today. When I picked him up from school, he was crying and said his teacher wanted to talk to me. I have been in contact several times over the year with his teacher and at the beginning of the year, I was happy that he had a male teacher. So at our "meeting" today his teacher said that my son was talking too much and he sent him to the hallway and then my son muttered a sarcastic remark so he sent him to the principal's office. My son and other kids said the teacher actually screamed at him to get out and P said "wow" as he was walking out (heard this after). That was his sarcastic remark and yes, he should not have said anything I know). Then the teacher lost it and yelled at him to go to the office (again, I heard after our meeting that other kids heard him yelling down the hallway). The teacher says to me that my son sat in the office all afternoon and then says to me and him, "He thinks he's really cool. You weren't so cool when you were crying all afternoon in the office were you?' And my son is crying during this "talk" and the teacher says, "You're not so cool now crying here in front of your mom are you?" My son is not one of the so called cool kids and he sure doesn't try to be. Then the teacher says to me, "You know some of the teachers don't like "P" (my son) and one teacher said to me at the beginning of the year..... oh, you got P in your class, too bad." I was so stunned and I think my face was ashen. I said to my boy, "Let's go" and we walked out of there and I don't want to go back. What kind of teacher says that to a 10-year-old child?? He's not a bad kid at all. We don't have a good principal now, for three years. so talking with him is not going to do anything. Am I over reacting?
