Wild Child

I have been having major problems with my 3 year old at pre-school. It seems that he is too “busy” and doesn’t “listen to instruction” and “won’t sit in circle” for long periods of time. The teacher he has is very strict. She has the room divided up into centers and there can only be 2 children at a center at a time. For some reason my son doesn’t get that rule. I don’t blame him, I don’t understand it either. I mean, how do you tell a little kid that he can’t play with the trains with his two friends. He’s not agressive, he’s not angry, he just does what he wants to do when he wants to do it. They tell me he’s “impulsive”. WHAT DO THEY EXPECT FROM HIM! HE’S ONLY 3 YEARS OLD!!! There are many theories about how schools are designed for girls. Teaching is geared towards quiet, mellow children who can sit still and listen for long periods of time. Teachers are mostly women. Active behavior (usually found in boys) is discouraged and looked down on. My son is only 3 and he’s already been labeled.
