I am so discouraged with my own child right now. I am a teacher, too. My kindergarten child is quite a talker. She has gotten several naughty notes sent home for talking and not listening. She is a sweet little thing. Not malicious and does not have any other behavior problems. She just cannot shut her sweet little mouth. We have taken her TV priviledges at home and all the toys in her bed have been removed for 3 days. I know that talking has to be under control in K, but I don't know what else to do for her. Sometimes I don't even think she realizes what is going on around her and that she is even talking. She is in her own little world. I am not making excuses for her, because we have to get this under control. BUT what can I do for her. We have talked, handed out consequences. She hates the consequences, but I don't think that she remembers them when she is at school and in the moment. Could it be that her class does too much sitting and quiet time? I am amazed at what the K students are learning these days. Is it too much? I jsut feel bad for her. I don't want her to hate school because she is in trouble all the time for talking. Any suggetions for this "parent of a k talker" please help me out.
