This is my 3rd day of first grade, and Im already needing to call a parent about their very rude and disruptive child. Yesterday was her first day, and when her parent introduced her, she curtsied. I was a little surprised at first, yet, a little suspicious of what type of personality I was going to be dealing with. Today was her second day and she asks to go to the bathroom every 10-20 minutes, and at one time she was in their for 10 minutes. She is making the other students that sit near her very uncomfortable with her rudeness and her snide remarks to them. I had to take away her "grown up" lipstick because it was distracting the other kids. She repeatedy has argued with me when I catch her in the act of breaking classroom rules. Needlessly to say, she is not making my days easy. She is in such need of some discipline, love, and attention from her family. I am reluctant to call her parents because Im afraid of them being the type that see's no wrong in their child. Im thinking of starting off by asking the parent if she may have a medical problem that makes it necessary for her to use the bathroom so much. What other approaches can I take when I call? Please advise. Thanks for listening!
