I feel like my child is constantly being picked on for little things. Her hair was messy as kids get that by the end of the day, the teacher told my kid that her mum should brush her hair properly. My child picked up a few words that we don’t use as they are negative like “can’t”. She has picked these up off shows like Dora. My child’s teacher asked if anyone in her family was American which is a no. She then accused my child of having a fake accent. We try to send our child to school as “correctly” as possible to avoid criticism. The other day the teacher rang up and said that my child has an attitude problem. All my child’s other teachers have loved her and there has been no issues. She gets praised on her helpfulness, learning, and manners so I do not understand what is going on. My child is still well behaved at home and her friends parents will invite her over for plays so she must be OK with other children and people’s rules. I was advised by a friend to go to the principal and have not yet had this meeting. Let the principal deal with it but I fear that if we do and my child stays in the class, that she will get more negative attention. My child also has not received one award this year vs other years where she received a lot. What would you do and sorry for the very long question but I was trying to explain it a little bit.
