It's really never dull around here with my son. I got a call from the school earlier. During unsupervised indoor recess (will get back to that) things got a little out of control with a ball playing game and he fell backwards and hit his head on a bench. A bump later and a small but looks like fairly deep cut and a lot of blood, he wants to know "Does this mean I cracked my head open?" It was enough that I had to pick him up from school. I don't know the answer so I thought I'd ask you guys? What constitutes a cracking open of the head? Back to the school part, what are your schools rules about when kids have to stay indoors at recess due to bad weather? Ours is 2 Grade 6 kids watching a classroom of kids while a teacher peaks in every so often. I am frustrated because last week his hair was cut by another kid with a large pair of scissors and now this, both times....no teacher just two gr. 6's. It doesn't help that I run a daycare and have kids Gr. 6 in my daycare because they are quite ready to be left alone at home, BUT THEY CAN BE RESPONSIBLE FOR A ROOM FULL OF GR. 4 KIDS???!!!! (edited to add, difficult child just told me that one of these gr. 6's was actually involed in the ball throwing that the teacher had said not to do!) Am I overreacting here?
