This post will be short because I have to leave for class in less than 10 minutes but I’m so enraged I have to get this out.
When I picked up my son from daycare today he was being bullied. Can I call it that since they are only 2 and 3 year olds??
They were on the playground, my son was in the playhouse screaming and crying to get out but 2 little boys thought it would be funny to hold the door closed so he couldn’t leave.
This is unacceptable.
This had been going on for a little while before I got there. (I could tell because of the intensity of my son’s screams)
There are 3 teachers out on the playground at all times. They didn’t pull the boys away from the door until I got there.
The teacher who pulled them away said “Okay let him out his mommy is here to get him.”
I didn’t say anything because, well, I have a very short temper and more than likely would have screamed.
What the hell is wrong with kids? Why didn’t the teacher stop it sooner? How do 2 and 3 year olds learn to be mean? Can I call it bullying even though they are “babies”??
Update- After having time to rationally think about this I have decided I am not mad at the two little boys. They are too young to comprehend what they did was bad.
I am mad at the teachers for not stopping it immediately, telling the boys it was wrong, putting them in time out, whatever.
They had ample opportunity to stop it and there were THREE of them out there. For them to wait until I got there to do anything was just plain ridiculous.
I will be talking to them tomorrow in a calmly manner.
