I’m afraid for my kids if it is. This week my kids decided to behave like stereotypical pastor’s kids. Well, not the baby but what can he do?
Wednesday my daughter got 3 demerits at school (4 equals detention) and one of those was from hitting her best friend. What on earth?
Then my son finished destroying his nap mat. OK, I admit I hate the way they handle the whole nap situation. The boy doesn’t take a nap unless he is ill. My oldest is the same but her teacher will make her lay quietly for 15 minutes then let her get a toy that doesn’t make noise or a book to keep herself entertained. His teacher makes him lay on his mat and not move for 2 hours. Can you imagine lying still for 2 hours wide awake? Now imagine being a 4 year old. Yeah pretty bad, but still I hate that he destroys stuff. OK sure I destroyed plenty but that is different. I was bored and bad things happen when I’m bored. (Like I said I’m concerned ADHD is genetic).
Anyways, my daughter just started the daycare and wouldn’t you know it, she got in trouble on Wednesday too. She normally takes a nap. If she doesn’t she gets very cranky. For some reason she doesn’t take her nap at day care. I think the change in setting is the issue. She has been pretty good except for Wednesday. She decided to moon the class. She pulled her pants and panties down and had her legs up over her head wagging her bare butt in the air. Maybe streaking is genetic too?
I’m hoping it is just spring fever and that they will settle back down to their normal well behaved selves soon. Anyone else having crazy kid issues? What about when you kids were younger?
