My son was home sick today. On the cartoon he was watching the kids were complaining that their mom was bossy. Their dad told them she wasn't really bossy, she just came off that way because a good mom has to be fierce to protect her children (smart Dad). I asked my son, "Am I bossy?" His reply was, "No but you're fierce." I'll take that as a compliment.
The other mother and I went into the school to meet with the teacher and the assistant head. We both let them know how upset we were that we were not informed that our children were sent to the office and how much we were against the children being allowed to play fighting games on the playground. I told them I wouldn't allow it at home and I'm really unhappy that it's being allowed at school. They admitted it was a problem and explained that they are planning to introduce a a scheme to teach the children to play in a safe way. They will be calling it 'Super Hero Training'. They plan to give out capes & masks out to children who behave well as rewards at playtime. They will have assemblies where they will teach the children to play fighting games without making contact. I find this to be absurd. The problem has gone on to long and I doubt they will be able to teach little children to change their games when they have sixty other children to look after on
