Update on the issues I have been having with my daughters school . The project in her art class is all made up and her point chart reward issue taken care of. I went up to the school today and talked with the teacher that handles the point charts and she said she gets it at 10:30 everyday she just has to remind the teacher. I was never told this by my daughter so tonight she will be getting talked to about this since I had to make a trip up to the school and she already knew it was taken care of.

So I take it to get her reward she has to tell the teacher if she doesn't she doesn't get it. Am I right? Sometimes kids forget but maybe this is something they are working on. I am glad that things were worked out though.

Right which I get to a point because some of them may not know where she is point wise. I am going to talk to her about it tonight when she gets home about taking her drawing time now that I know the issue is taken care of. She needs to take her reward it will help her get her mind on something else for a while before going to the next class.

I forgot to ask what are they using as rewards for her? I know Dorothy's teacher went to things like, wear your pajamas to school, pick any of the special people things to do, eat lunch with the teacher and things like that.

She get drawing time she picked it. I told her she is to take her drawing time every day it will help her unwind before going to her next class. She has been getting it now she just has to go to her teacher at a certain time and tell him she wants her drawing time and she will get it.

Communication is something that is very important when it comes to looking out for the best when it comes to our children and their school experiences. I've been very lucky that neither of my children have had issues with school so far, but I also know that the lines of communication between my children's teachers and myself is something that is very open. I am not only able to talk to their teachers by calling the school, I also have their email addresses and I even have my son's homeroom teacher's cell phone number.

You are so right communication is very important when it comes to our kids and their schooling. This school is terrible when it comes to communication if i had another school to send her to I would.

I am thankful that you got the issue resolved, but I think it would have been better if she would have explained it all to you. It amazes me how kids can leave out important stuff.

I also am very thankful that it got resolved. And you are right kids always leave out important things . I got her good when she got home I embarrassed her in front of her friend and told her friend after dinner she is not playing she will be grounded the rest of the night. They both we're not happy about this.

Well I am glad that the issue is all taken care of but it would have been better if your daughter had explained everything so that way you didnt have to go to the school to speak with the teacher. My daughter was supposed to go back to school today but she said this morning she was too tired and didnt feel good enough to go so I let her stay home another day. She was in time out today already for an hour for hurting her brother. It was her turn to use the computer and he wouldnt get off and was trying to get his food off the computer desk and she smacked him on the back like 4 times. He had red marks on his back and was crying I felt so bad for him. I think its terrible that once she feels better again she starts being mean again. She was good the whole time she didnt feel good.

Me also. I don't know what is going on and why she did not tell me it was taken care of but I am going to be talking to her when she gets home tonight.Sorry she did not feel well enough to go back today maybe tomorrow.She must feel good enough to pick on her brother and get put in time out over it. I agree with you it is terrible that she can be good while being sick but once she is not sick she starts being naughty.

Communication is a big issue all the way around. I think it is good you are going to talk with your daughter about this, not because she is bad, but because you are helping her learn to use her own voice on issues.

You are so right communication is a big issue.She will learn when she gets home that she can't do this because I could have went up to the school and really yelled at them. Which I am glad I did not .I hope she just forgot to tell me but either way she needs to know this can't happen again.

The thing about this that is not good is she did not tell me about the whole issue being taken care of I had to go over there talk to her counselor and the counselor pulled the teacher and she told me it was taken care of. So I confronted my daughter about this when she got home and told her since she lied to me she was grounded from her friend for the night. Since this whole thing she has been getting her drawing time.
