Kindergarten Suspension

Friday, September 21, 2012

My 5 year old was suspended today from Kindergarten for 5 days due to some pretty severe behavior. I will blog it out on my custodial auntie blog later today. Let's just say that when I pulled up to the school, a police cruiser was parked outside... and it was because of my 5 year old.

I've had a good cry to say the least.

I am back at work. I am a wreck. Trying to hold myself together long enough to get my job done, then have her at an emergency therapy appointment at 4:45 (again due to the severity of her behavior).

I am doing the opposite of stress eating. I am not eating at all. My stomach is in knots. I feel ill. I can't focus at work. I just want to sit down and cry. I have been trying to get this kid the help she needs....

The flip side, maybe this will force the hand of people who haven't believed me that she has behavior problems...

Just had to vent a quick vent so I can get focus on work. As if having her here at work with me isn't making that impossible anyway....

    I feel your pain and know what you are going through. I wish I could offer more than just hugs. I'm hoping you can both get the support you need.

    I know all too well what you're going through. No cruiser just yet but it's still frustrating. Good on you for seeking help for her and being proactive. Better now than when they're teens. Good luck and Godspeed. emoticon

    Oh, goodness! *big hugs* Please do take care of yourself and when you get a moment do let it out / process your emotions. You are a GREAT mom as I have seen over the time I have known you be such. I am sending you and your family some positive warm energy. Please hang in. If you need someone to talk to I am here!

    I would work with the therapist as well as the school to advocate for getting a "Tier 1" intervention in place to start. It should provide some extra structure. If those interventions don't work, a behavior plan should be put in place. Even though it's only kindergarten, the teachers and staff should be looking to put interventions in place for the behaviors not just be sitting back and sending her home. Be sure that you continue to advocate for yourself and your child's needs. :) I'm a teacher for students with behavior/emotional disorders- if you need any suggestions/help please let me know and I'll do the best I can with any advice that I can give.
