I felt that today was very chaotic! We only had 13 – and we went through the same routines and over the same rules we did yesterday – and yesterday went very well – but today was another story! We both felt like the children were doing the exact opposite of everything we said! It was just so tiring and we felt like we were fighting a loosing battle! I don’t like feeling as if I’m fighting with the children all day!
And I have one little boy, who I swear, doesn’t know his name! We sometimes have to call his name 8 – 10 times before we get a response! And I know it’s not his hearing. When we talked to mom and dad they said that they don’t call him by his name at home but that he “should know what his name is” – really? Am I in some sort of joke here?
I’m frustrated because I feel like we took many steps back today – and I thought that we could be moving forward. I know they’re just testing – seeing what we’ll allow them to get away with – it happens every year – and I hate it! If it lasts longer than a few days, I’m talking to parents – because I’m done. So, I’m praying that it will go better tomorrow – after all, it can’t get much worse! 🙂
