Is it just me or....? kind of long but would like your imput.
My daughter goes to one of the finest public schools in our city, and she is making wonderful grades.She is in second grade. my 'problem' is that her teachers(she has several special classes as she is doing so well in some classes she gets to go to third grade reading, math, etc.) are always calling me, sometimes two and three times a week with the pettiest little things. One time it was she wasn't being quiet enough. The next time it was she was being a bit disruptive. The next time it was talking in class. Then it was she got her name on the board. I even got a call the FIRST day of school because she wouldn't'settle down' enough.
Is it just me or are they a bit too---something? Petty,maybe? Now, I know I'm not there supervising every little move she makes, and I know at times she can get pretty rambuncious, but the past two years I have heard nothing but good about her. Her grades are as high as ever but I am getting freaked out by these constant calls!I mean, I know kids need to settle down and behave at school but it is hard for a little kid to sit for a majority of the day. I realise she may be causing a BIT--and I stress BIT --of distraction, but to call me all the time?It's almost like they have absolutely no power of authority or something, like THEY don't want to deal with it-a class disruption caused by talking! It kind of leads me to believe it could be her teacher.I don't know. We still have a bit to go in the school year, I kind of dread it in a way because I fear getting a call over something dumb!It used to be when the phone rang from the school I always got this lump in my throat thinking, oh my, what is wrong with my daughter? Now it is , What did she do this time?
Let's not mention the silly messages I get on my answering machine!(Same things as above...)
The only time before this year I ever got a call from the school was when she was sick or spilled chocolate milk on her clothes or something-something legitimate.
Now I agree that kids need to listen and learn while they are at school, bit this just seems a bit excessive, to say the least.I just don't honestly believe she is causing THAT much trouble. I remember being a kid-barely but I do.
I hope they don't suggest medication-that won't be happening. She's just a kid. I have talked to about it- what more can I do? Have any of you ever had this trouble or anything like it? Please advise- I'm at my wit's end!!!!
