My child recently started school.
Some older kids have been rough with her and after long suffering she has retaliated and hit back.
After this incident, the school started sending me letters and now even mentioned this in her social skills improvement area.
Earlier I have seen the same teacher shushing my little one when she pointed out another girl in the same class who slapped her (her words were I already told her and she never did it again).
But somehow I feel my child is getting targeted after one incident where she only hit back to protect herself. What should I do?
In a verbal conversation, the teacher sounds very easy and casual but goes on repeating that incident constantly in written communication with me – sometimes even using the words like “it happens daily”… Well you never told me daily…I am confused and surprised and I have really started to loose my sleep over it.
Every time I have tried to get back to her with facts in writing, she calls for a verbal discussion chat and then restrains from agreeing or disagreeing to the facts I have stated. She does not reply me in writing and her verbal discussions does not match with her written communication ever.
Please help me. What should I do?
This is getting really stressful for us now…!
