hi I have twin daughters , 6 years old. their names are Keisha and Kaelyn. Kaelyns an extrovert and very naughty,is an average in studies but hates to write in school. She is always answering questions loves to take part in school activities. She is bold and confident to speak on the Mike on the stage. Today she asked me to change her school because she feels the kids in the class call her names and laugh at her. She also said that the entire class blames her for everything. I am a bit concerned about her losing her self confidence and don't want her to get into a shell. please advise if I should take this up with her teacher. As she is a naughty child her teacher may be holding her responsible for everything. look forward to hearing from you.education Corner
Oh this is distressing to hear. You must share this with her teacher. Share your concerns. This is bullying. If there is no help please go to the Principal. Meanwhile be supportive and work on her esteem Teach her to be assertive: example 1. To look into the eyes of the bully and say loudly STOP IT. 2. Move away from the situation 3. Immediately seek the help of an elder nearby. 4. At home create a game where you and her play. The game should be on power and control. So you pretend to be a monster and you are trying to catch her Please make sure the game is fun and not to instill fear. when she is escaping or trying to put up a brave stand, praise her and say,' oh my you are so powerful. .. Through such games and even stories you can subtly teach her how to be assertive. I hope this helps.
