I picked my DD from school today whose 7 and in year 2. She told me she got detention then became quite upset. After a few minutes she finally told me why, she had asked her teacher if she could go to the bathroom and the teacher said she could after another little boy came back. So that's what she did. When she got back to class she got in trouble and the teacher gave her detention and told her shell be writing lines tomorrow lunch time. I thought this way a bit harsh and feel like I should confront the teacher and ask why? DD was so confused and upset on the way home, she's not a naughty kid and has never been in trouble at school before so she was very shocked.
I've had a few minor issues with what DD has told me about certain things at school but have let them go cause I didn't want to fuss and it may have only been half the story but now I'm
Starting to wonder.
So just wondering if its over the top to talk to the teacher in the morning? Thoughts?

Good enough reason for detention?

Sounds over the top to me.

Sounds ott to me. Detention for doing what she was told? Did the teacher not notice the boy come back & think she went without checking? Still too harsh really...I'd be speaking to the teacher.

Sounds over the top to me. I had a similar incident with DS. I approached the teacher to politely ask what the full story was (DS is behind in his speech so not able to properly verbalise situations at times). Turns out what DS told us is not the reason why he got in trouble at all.
On a side note, do students still have to write out lines? I thought that had gone the way of the cane.

Hmmm I think you need to ask the teacher why because it does seem OTT for what your child has advised.

Just ask the teacher. Sometimes cause/effect gets lost on kids. Teachers aren't out to torture kids, so I'd ask for an explanation (politely).

Doesn't sound right to me. Writing lines is also completely inappropriate.

Way over the top. I thought having to ask permission to go to the toilet let alone having one child go at a time was really old school?
