My almost 5 year old daughter has been in kindergarten for almost 2 months. She loved it. Recently she said a boy kicked her. Another day a boy pulled her shirt. Then a boy punched her in the stomach. She doesn't like big school any more. I said if anyone hurts you hurt them and tell the teacher. She said she cant. I said "Why?", she said, "I'm scared of the teacher". I also noticed she wasn't eating her sandwich. Another mum told me her son told her, my daughter got in trouble for not finishing her work, therefore not allowed to eat it.
I was extremely angry. Confronted the teacher and she said it was a way to punish her because she knows my daughter can do the work but isn't. Then she changed the subject. She also told my daughter in front of me, "we only tell mummy the good things don't we". My daughter replied "yes".
Tonight my daughter cried and begged for her not to go to school. I eventually got her to stop crying and tried to encourage her and make her happy to get her to sleep peacefully.
