    Report her. She's out of line. She isn't an early childhood expert and she isn't your childs parent so she has no right to say anything, let alone in the inappropriate and frankly rude manner that she did so.
    She needs to be snapped back into place hard and fast.

    Omg how stressful.

    I really dont have alot of advice. Just support and hugs, stand your ground and tell her she was inappropriate, and to mind her own business.

    Goodluck

    You did the right thing, for sure.

    You are the mother and you know your child better than she does. You are the one who has to walk with your child and you need to do what works for your family. It was way out of line for her to talk to you that way in front of the other mothers.

    Don't feel like you need to answer, just idea to why she maybe acting this way.
    Is you child very active?
    I have very active kids (one with ADHD and we think may also have it) I have been asked/questioned by teacher about the amount exercise they get as think the must get none because they are so active at school.

    Is your on the large/small size?
    I have some tall, tubby kids and short and very lean kids and I have been questioned about their exercise at home too (too much and no enough).

    Even if she dose think this way it no excuse for talking to a parent like that.
    If she was really concerned she should have pull you a side and made appointment to talk to you about it.

    Id bypass the deputy and organise a meeting for the Principle and the teacher to be there together. Arrange it for when your husband can also be there with you, so you have each other for strength and can both say what you need to. I would then tell them that, while I appreciate their concern, their comments are out of line and I do not appreciate being told off infront of the other parents and the children.
    Get harsh on them. They have no right to tell you how to get your children to and from school. Do NOT let them gang up on you. Stand your ground, this is YOUR child and show them you will not stand for it.

    Hope things work out

    Thanks for all of your reassurances

    Hi Loving6 both my boys are very active, on the go go go all day long not just physically but mentally I do have a feeling she finds him spirited and thinks that he does have too much energy. He isn't on the big side at all, 110cm (?) and 22kg when I checked the other week he was right on with the breastfeeding growth charts I'd say he is stocky but not overweight.

    Wow you are way nicer than I would have been. Her duty of care to your child ends when she hands him back to you. I'm also pretty sure it is the classroom teachers responsibilty to discuss any issues with the parents - not the TA.

    She is out of line - good for you for following it up.
