SO’s little one will be graduating Kindergarten next Friday. The kid’s very smart but none of us think he’s emotionally ready for first grade. He already redid preschool for that reason and there’s no way they will hold him back for his behavior but all year he’s struggled.
The worst part is I truly blame his teacher. We’ve all tried working with her and we’ve complained to the school multiple times but it’s done nothing. MAYBE next year he’ll do better with a new teacher but this one has failed us in so many ways. We truly believe the boy has been bullied or is a bully but any time there is an incident the teacher ignores it except to penalize the kid in his points. When we ask what happen the teachers answer has always been “I don’t know” or “he won’t tell me”. We’ve asked she involve the school therapist and she doesn’t. We speak to the principle and he doesn’t know what’s going on in the classroom.
It’s frustrating because at the start of the year the first time there was a problem I tried speaking to her and she excused it as “normal”. No it wasn’t and it’s still not. The child struggles to control his emotions when he’s not getting his way. He’s manageable in our home but BM’s dad can’t control him anymore which is why we have him so much. BM herself thinks the boys a monster and struggles to see anything good in him though she loves and babies him so much.
I just worry about how this will work out as he gets older. Sooner or later he can use his fist to express himself. He shouldn’t have been allowed to this year but they just didn’t care.
