I am a director and have a child in our 2 year-old class this is really a behavior problem. At the beginning of the year the teacher and I talked with the parents and they were great. They were willing to help in any way. We also realized that he is only 2 and was still learning. However as the year has progressed his behavior has become worse and his parent's attitude has changed. He throws toys, bites, hits, screams etc. Some days he is so precious you could squeeze him to death, but other days he is clearly a danger to others. His mother gave me permission to spank him, but our state regs prohibit this. They also prohibit time out for this age, but we have to use timeout. We have also tried putting him in a pack and play which he climbs out of and a high chair which works. I hate to use the high chair though becuase he doesn't learn anything or get to participate. His mother has left work to spank him, but can not anymore for fear of losing her job. When he had an extremely bad ( I hate to use that word!) day this week, I told the teacher to call the parent and have someone pick him up. I would have called myself, but I was subbing for a sick teacher. The parent told my teacher that we were paid to keep him and part of keeping him was discipline. Today when the parent picked him up, another teacher was in the room because his teacher had a dr. appt. The parent asked how he was and that teacher said he had been good this afternoon. (she had been with him during nap!) The parent responded by saying "I am glad some one knows how to handle him." Any suggestions? He needs to be at school!
