Love and blessings to the overwhelmed mother with the revengeful story. Cookies were baking to eat after lunch and the child left before lunch time. No child has ever been denied food during toilet training. Yes children are expected not to run away from teachers and tantrums are not considered appropriate ways to communicate. The parents and child were given hundreds of hours of attention with many gestures of gratitude from the parents. A loving aide was assigned to the child to help him understand appropriate behavior. The family was shown only love, kindness compassion and dedication to helping an undisciplined four year old child. Interestingly enough the mother begged us to take her other child. We regret the review from the parent who was only shown tolerance and love and wish the best to the child and the family.
The staff at the facility expected my child to act like a young adult rather than a three year old. Punishment was severe and traumatizing for my child. He was sent home for acting out. On his second day of school and first day of potty training he had an accident and was denied a freshly baked cookie in front of the class. I don't feel that was the appropriate message to send to preschoolers.
