this is a follow up of my other thread about the teacher getting upset with me when i asked her to stop taking my sons recess away. a few days ago the VP told the teacher she had to make 'improvements' to her discipline style and he has stepped in to take over for her in dealing with my little man. so now when he is bad he gets a warning, if that doesn't work he goes to the office and sits on a quiet chair with the vice-principle supervising him. then they talk about it, come up with some ideas of what he could have done better and he goes back to class. yes, the vp is actually taking the time to teach him the skills he needs instead of punishing him for not having them. so, in the past two days he has not had an incident of any kind, and he has gotten all smiley faces on his daily report AND he has gotten the stickers at the end of the day for good behaviour. these are collected on a chart and when that is full they get a prize. he also told me he got a caring ticket which the kids get for doing something thoughtful and they take them to the office and put them in a draw box to get a chance to win a prize. so i guess i was right about the recess thing and i am not the idiot parent that the teacher made me feel like.
