his DD is 6 and in 1st grade. we have her full time. bio mom took off when she was 2 months old. anyway kid has had serious behavior issues since school started this year. we have tried everything we know to do, testing for add and other "disorders"...sticker charts, rewards, privliges taken, spanking...etc even the teacher and school has run out of ideas to curb her behavior. at home its fine..at school horrible. anyway due to absolutely the worst behavior yet we decided she will not be trick or treating and made her return her costume to the store.....SO wants to take it a step past that...we were originally supposed to go trick or treating with some friends of ours who also have kids....So still wants to go...and bring his daughter along and not let her dress up and participate and make her watch all the kids. i think this is just really mean and a little overboard.
It's a little overboard IMHO. The punishment does not fit the crime. There's a reason she's acting out in school and not at home, maybe she doesn't like the teacher, maybe she feels picked on. If the teacher is out of ideas, transfer her to another one. It's kind of early in the year for a teacher to give up. Let your daughter see it as a positive step and a clean start.
