I have a very intelligent, beautiful, 6 year old girl that keeps getting in trouble for the way she plays with boys. At daycare after school, she seems to get into trouble for "falling down on the ground and pullimg little boys down to fall on top of her." ...... we do not approve. Me and daddy are very careful about everything from ehat she watches on tv to what we do in front of her (the most is a goodbye kiss before work). We have tried to discipline her, talking to her about acting like a little lady, everything, but it is becoming a constant issue. The daycare instructor (30+ years experience) said that she has never had this problem before and has tried everything she knows how to correct it with no luck. IS THIS NORMAL? HOW DO I FIX IT?
She has been going there for almost 2 years 8 hours a day until she began kindergarten now its only less than 2 hrs a day 5X a week. Other than normal 6 yr old stuff she is a very good kid (aside from the current issue). Most of her behavior problems began after she started kindergarten, but I can't seem to get her to understand that she is to do what she knows is right, even when the other kids don't. I know a lot of it is coming from her school (the school is not the best) butbi can't get her to act right!
Yes, he is and they have a wonderful relationship that's why I am so confused. She doesn't get into trouble at school the way she gets into trouble at daycare. She just does basic 6 yr old stuff at school, like not listening or playing when she should be working, but its most of the time not even severe enough for them to send notes or anything home.
Well, it sounds like since most of these behaviors are at the Daycare - - maybe it would be time to think about transitioning her to another one, or asking the current one to really step up and do more structured activities with the children so your daughter will be more occupied and have less time to interact with the boys.
Hopefully the Daycare will want to put in the effort to help re-direct your daughter when she starts to behave that way with the boys.
Another thought could be to have her spend less time at the Facility too. Arrange your work schedule so she can come home after school instead of going straight to Daycare. They're only young once and the more time you can spend with them the better.
