First day of kindergarten was yesterday, and my son, who has behavior problems was excited about starting. I was too. It turns out that the teacher gives out skittles candies to reinforce good behavior!!! I sent the teacher an e-mail explaining that he cant have those because the dye in them makes him completely out of control. Any candy does that to him. Even cinnaminn. Today, the teacher gave out the candy to the kids everytime they did something positive. Except to my son. She explained to him that his mom said no, so now he is the only one in the class who gets nothing. Now he hates me and he hates school. There is no "treat" that I can send to the school for him, because he has a bad reaction to all. And, he doesnt want something different than the rest of the class!!! You would think a kindergarten teacher would realize how important this is to a kid!!!
