My daughter was practically in tears on the phone.
When she takes her 6 year old son to school - he started school in August at the start of our new school year -, he is happy and she is glad BUT
another little boy stands crying violently and his father just walks away..This happens every morning.
She asked, should she try to comfort the boy, ignore him, as everyone else is doing, or speak to his teacher, or to his father=
I said I would have had a quiet word with the teacher and sais it distressed me to see a child who was obviously so unhappy. It is, after all, part of her job teaching the reception class to deal with this sort of thing.
Well, DH told me in no uncertain terms that our daughter should do nothing , By saying anything to anyone she risks being called an interfering busybody, or an overprotective mother and that either of these opinions if held either by the staff or other parents could make our grandson's schooling impossible.
I frankly couldn't believe me ears, but to be on the safe side told our daughter of her father's opinion and said that my advice may have been wrong and that she should wait a while and see whether the boy in question settles down.
What would your advice have been? Similar to my husband's or to my original advice, or something completely different?
When I asked her, she said the boy seems genuinely upset, and is not just throwing a tantrum.
