Compliments from the teacher

Moms View Message Board: General Discussion: Archive October 2006: Compliments from the teacher
By Jackie on Monday, October 2, 2006 - 10:23 am:

My 7 year old daughter is a real handful at home. From as far as I can remember she has always been the wild child. She would climb, jump off things. She still does at home. She is arguementative(Sp?)at home, very hands on with her older brother.
Yet in school, I have got nothing but compliments on her behavior. I am not complaining about this at all. Today I got 2 different compliments on her, and they were not even from her teacher. One was another 2nd grade teacher who knew me. She told me how well behaved and sweet my daughter was9(She saw her in the classroom and was so impressed with her). The other compliment was from a 3rd grade teacher who also knows me(from my son having her)said she saw how well behaved she was in the hallways and such. This 3rd grade teacher knew my daughter when she was about 3 running wild down the halls in her brothers classroom. The 3rd grade teacher said she couldnt believe it was the same child and had to ask her current teacher about her.
I left the school feeling very proud of my daughter.Though, it is so confusing to me. As soon as I pick her up, and we leave the school doors, she is a whole different child.
We get home, and I give her a little break and its time for homework. She fights and argues every step of the way with me.
I am so glad she is good at school, and only hope one day she will be that good at home.

That's awesome,Jackie!!We are always at our worst with the ones we love.It's a good feeling when our kids behave when we're not with them.

That always makes a parent feel proud to hear such things about your children. Good job!

My kids get compliments at school but they can raise havoc at home. I wouldn't have it any other way. They need a comfortable place where they can vent.
I had my fourth grade son's conference today. The teacher told me that when my dd and son see each other in the hallway each day at lunch they smile and wave to each other. These are the same two kids that have to be separated at home most of the time! They are oil and water most of the time!
Way to go to your dd! You should be very proud of her good citizenship!! :)

I've heard that about my kids, too, but like all of yours, they can be far different at home, with each other! LOL!

I like hearing that they are kind and helpful at school, though. It makes me feel like some of the lessons I have tried to teach, actually did get into their heads.
