But, I am here to say that there are a few things that we did that significantly improved the situation! I am so happy with how things have improved. Caden has many friends now and really enjoys school. So, first…I called the teacher. Caden was scared to death that I would embarrass him or that I would create a bigger problem. But, his teacher was a superstar. First, she talked to Caden and told him that there is a difference between being a tattle-tail and talking about a problem. She told him to come to her any time something like that happened.
Second, she asked Caden to pick two kids in the class that he felt would be fun and nice friends to have. She then moved the seats around so that Caden was sitting right in between them. She would purposely arrange class activities so that he was involved with the kids he picked.
Third, she talked to the whole class in a non-incriminating way about being kind, including others, and standing up for what is right. She also promised to keep an eye on the situation. I couldn’t be more happy with the way she handled it. If your child is in this situation…suggest these things to the teacher…and follow up!
