My daughter is 5 and has had a good year so far. No discipline issues except I was told in the fall conference she could be bossy at times. A few weeks ago her teacher told me she was being ugly to other little girls in the class, that everyone wants to play with her (which is good, I guess), but sometimes she will line them up and pick who she wants to play with. Her teacher told me that a child in her class gave the class gifts. The gifts were different for each child. My daughter did not like she was given, so she went up to the little girl who got it for her, put her hand on her hip, wagged her finger in the little girl's face, and told her she should have given her the gift she wanted. I told the teacher not to give her the gift, made her write a note of apology, and told her I was disappointed in her. A couple of questions. I don't want her to be a mean child. She has had no instances of physical aggression, but she is mouthy and sometimes rude. She talks, and sometimes acts, like a teenager. She is very bright but likes to get her own way. When it happens, we talk about it and punish as needed. Do you think her behavior, while rude, is typical 5 year old behavior? Do you think the punishment was appropriate? Too lenient?
