Did you know that you can get sent to the principal in preschool?
Well, apparently you can and it took my son less than two weeks to figure out how to accomplish this feat. Bet you’re jealous because my kid is so advanced!
I was hoping this was a milestone we could avoid…you know, to at least kindergarten.
Our transition to a five morning a week prekindergarten preschool class has been rocky to say the least. (He went three mornings a week last year so we added two extra mornings this year– which is standard operating procedure around these parts. )
My son has always been an active, stereotypical boy, but he has never been aggressive. Well, check that, he has never BEFORE been aggressive. This morning he hit a couple of kids on the playground and then kicked somebody at snack time.
Honestly, I’m really frustrated and not sure what to do.
We talk and talk and talk about this stuff. I take away privileges, I give time outs, I take away toys…I really am trying here. My little man hasn’t watched TV in a week and there have been very few treats of any kind around here. I try my best to balance out the negative with lots of positive reinforcement, hugs and kisses and all that good stuff.
Despite the substantial evidence to the contrary, he hasn’t been raised by wolves. He has a mother who cares and who is busting her behind.
I think we could all do with a time out this week.
