Ok, so i am not sure i am over-reacting or its normal but i am very upset with the complaint from the teacher. So i joined this forum to seek help. Little background - We have arrived from India few months back and my son is having trouble settling here due to language problems. He is very sincere, obedient and fun loving. Doe to language problem with other kids he doesnt mix-up with them much but tries to be part of other kids games and activities. He do complains many times that few kid tease him and even if he tells the teacher nothing changes. But if any kid makes his complain then teacher stops him but politely. Today - So this morning his teacher made a complaint - about him bringing blu-tak(a stick material to stick papers). Few days back he bought blu-tak from school and when i asked him who gave you this he told his classmate. He told all kids bring something from home to play, so i told him not to take anything from other kids and rather bought him new ones for him to play. All is fine until here. But when she progressed telling me that he steal charts from the class, this really made me crazy. Ok so i remember him bringing charts from school and when i asked he told he took it for drawing. I told him that this is not good to bring things from class he told that other students too have taken it. So the teacher telling me a 6 year old is stealing is something troubling my mind and requires some serious attention now. I am not able to understand what should i do. 1). Talk to teacher - that due to some misunderstanding this happened but we will ensure it wont happen again. 2). Talk to my son and tell him that this is not right. But one thing that i am not able to understand is why does school teacher used the word 'steal'. The way i was approached is something that is troubling me. He is just a kid and we cannot put such allegations on him. So someone please help me on this. I don't want any trouble to my son not sure how he will be treated.
