So finding out through my daughter and another child in her class who is a really good friend of hers and his parents are good friends of mine, that her and another little girl in class are calling names. This other little girl calls Jaimie Ugly and stupid and Jaimie calls her dirty. Now the fact that I didnt hear this from the teacher bothers me. For starters if my daughter is calling another child names she needs to be punished I will not have her grow up and be one of those bully's who harass other children and think its ok. Also I will not have her loose self esteem because of what another girl is saying to her. I feel like her teacher is TEACHING her so much, but when it comes down to actually disciplining and dealing with the conflict she is lost. She talked to me about Jaimie Tattle Tailing at parent teacher conferences and how she just puts the stop sign up and asks Jaimie if she is being a good friend. Now its one thing to tattle tale and its another to be harassed and not feel like she can say anything about it. I dont want her to think it is ok to have someone call her names because then she thinks its ok to call names back. I am calling the teacher tomorrow just wondering if I am over reacting first child in school and all.
I think you may be over-reacting a bit. That's normal for that age. I would have been "tattling" to my kids parents every single day when I worked at summer camp with 5 and 6 year olds if I felt obligated to tell every little thing I heard.
It's sad that kids that age talk like that
And don't forget that the teacher can't really change the way she disciplines there is only so much they are allowed to do and so much they are allowed to discipline for. But you can open up communication with the teacher, and talk on occasion to make sure that the situation is being addressed and watched.

My aunt teaches kindergarten and her kids this year are awful! One little boy called a girl a slut over a crayon ... a kindergartner!!

It's so sad. Another little girl came up to her and said "Miss. Billie, my mommy said you're a bastard" It's ridiculous!
