This is my son's first year of preschool. He attends a morning preschool session two days a week for two hours. They are done at 11:00 a.m. My question is ... it seems almost every day when I pick him up the teacher hands out some sort of treat, either a sucker, candy etc. Sometimes it's from the teacher and sometimes it's from other kids in the class. The problem I am having is that my son MELTS DOWN if I try to take his "treat" away from him. Normally I wouldn't care .... and let him enjoy the treat ... but it's RIGHT before lunch time And I drop him off at daycare and he usually hasn't finished his treat in time which isn't fair to the other kids at the daycare. I also pick up another little boy that goes to th same preschool and same daycare. So trying to take TWO 3 year olds treats away seems daunting! I am also rushed for time b/c I have to get back to work so I can't just let them sit in the car and finish their treats. My questions is ... would it be wrong to ask the teacher to put the kids' treats in their backpacks and let the parents decide when they can enjoy them? Or how would you handle it or want it handled if I were one of your kids' parents?
