Just wanting some perspectives on something I heard my son's kindy teacher say this morning at drop off.
A few of the kids were sitting down eating their morning tea. At this kindy the rule is fruit first when eating. One girl (lets call her L) asked the teacher to chop up her fruit, and some other kids were eating theirs too.
L started to try and eat her yoghurt, teacher said fruit first please, L then started to get cranky, said she didnt want the fruit. The teacher said look we are all eating beautiful fruit, we need fruit for our brains, I have cut up your fruit don't waste it and so on.. L then started to whine a bit, arch her back on the chair (not so bad as to fall off though) and got a bit cranky I suppose. Not kicking and screaming tantrum or anything though.
The teacher then turned away and said ' some one didn't get enough sleep over the weekend did they' with a bit of tone. Loud enough for the child to hear, and obviously I heard it too from about a metre away..
I have no idea what this child is usually like, or whether she had been a bit of hard work so far this morning, but to me that comment seemed a bit off.. or not right I suppose?? Even immature maybe??
The teacher is pretty friendly/ nice overall.
What do you think of the comment? Would you say something to her? I wont as im very non confrontational and its not really a big 'issue' but Im thinking I should keep an ear out for this kind of thing..
