Teacher overreacting

For the past few weeks I am feeling quite frustrated with my sons´s teacher. Every single time he does something or says something, instead of her sorting it out with my son she rings me or insists on a meeting. I´m afraid in case my son becomes paranoid with the amount of times I have to talk to him about being really nice to the other children and always having sensitivity for others feelings. He´s only 4!!

Any advice?

I would ask for a meeting with the teacher and the principal. Have a list of times and dates ( and if you can remember reasons) the teacher rang. Then you can just let the principle deal with it. You can also say unless your child is sick or hurt not to call you. Tell them the teacher has to send a note home and it has to be co- signed by the principal. Good luck. 💛

You should have a meeting with the teacher and the principal.
