Is that how the song goes? So the call from G's teacher was enlightening, and can I just say I don't like little girls? The other little girls in G's class told her she would grow a tale if she told on people. These girls have older school age siblings. That is where G got the idea she would have a tale. Thank goodness it wasn't the teacher but I must admit to not being very sure.
The teacher told me she would have a talk with G to clarify things. I hope it works. The teacher said she didn't see the incident and acknowledged that G is rarely the instigator. Now before you assume I take Gs side for everything I assure you I don't. I know my kid can be bad. I know she has done things of her own free will before like pulling a little girl's hair when it was 3 to 1 bullying. I also discipline G for her behavior.
But what I do know is that G is a teacher pleaser, and she is introverted. She also tends to be a follower not a leader. She is well liked in her class by the other kids, but sometimes they treat her like a toy to do their bidding rather than an equal. I suspect all followers are treated as such.
Even the fighting is from older sibs of other kids. G doesn't know how to fight and has no idea it is bad. The other girls don't either as they are following what big brother or sis do. I am really hoping that, other than 2 or 3 of the kids in G's class now, none of them will be in her kindergarten class next year!! Really it is 3 girls that I really don't want around G.
G will be moritfied that I talked to her teacher, and the teacher said she melted down when she told G I had to be told about the biting. How do you teach a child to be a leader, anyone? anyone? I need the instructions and lots of prayer!!
