Is grounding 6 yr old for school behavior excessive?
teacher calendar home green means good day, yellow means had a warning, and red means numerous warnings for behavior.
Is grounding of a six year old for having 1 red out of the week, all test green for the week, excessive or even damagng to the child? Grounding means no tv, playing, only home work and chores for the entire weekend.
I don't think a six year old has the maturity level for complete self control every day of the week. I think this would have the child to be not motivated to have greens either during the week because the consequence is the same for one red or 5 reds.
I think that some consequences for the day the the red behavior happened could have consequences for the that evening perhaps, go to bed early, extra chore, etc.
PS teacher has not notified parent that her behavior needs parent teacher meeting, so I am assuming that this childs behavior is typical for her age and the classroom enviornment.
