Respect Violation

While this blog is supposed to be about parenting, I really didn’t mean to just tell stories about K’s day at school, but we had another stellar one back in October that I am still thinkng about. A kid in her kindergarten class got a Respect Violation. If you aren’t up on the school lingo, this means they were expelled – IN KINDERGARTEN!          

Okay. Forgive the all caps, but come on it’s a charter school. The parents are all the super involved types. They have to be just to drive their kids to and from school every day and complete the required volunteer time. So, I was surprised to learn that a kid was expelled. I was equally surprised to learn K’s perception of the Respect Violation.

“It’s like when a police man writes a grown up a special note that says if you do something bad again I will take away your car, only it’s for kids.”

More words of wisdom from the mouths of babes. I couldn’t have put it better myself K.
