I'm so frustrated. Kindergarten has been tough with so many birthday/holiday parties. Plus the half days that make lunch at 10 am. Now her teacher calls me to say..."We are doing charting, so I want to have the kids use m&m's, then they get to eat them after." My reply was "We'll Ava will need a bolus for that so you'll have to bring her to the nurse" (the teacher and Ava for that matter hate unscheduled trips to the nurse" so she said, "Well, maybe Ava won't want to eat them. Not all kids like chocolate." I said "Seriously? Ava will want to eat them. And if she is high, I would prefer she not have m&m.'s Do you have to use food to do the chart? Can't you use beads or something?" THEN she said... "Well, if she's high we could just tell her she can't participate." At which point my head exploded and I said this. "She's five. FIVE. You are going to be the one to tell her she can't do something the whole class is doing and you are going to be the one to make her cry. Do you really want that in your classroom? Perhaps beads or seeds would be a better idea." I'm just so mad I could spit. Last year her teacher had no problem with not doing food things in the class room. This year (new school) her teacher acts resentful of everything. So long story, how do you get teachers on board about not using food for every thing?
