My daughter is 5 yrs old. She is a very sweet little girl who normally is very much a people pleaser- she likes to do things that make you happy. However recently she has has issues in school- she told a little boy that her daddy was going to come to school and shoot him (which from my understanding was completely out of the blue as they were not even talking or playing near each other) and today a few weeks later she went up and punched the same boy in the nose.
According to her teacher she is fine with all the other kids and her "behavior in class has improved greatly over the last month or so (meaning following the rules, not talking, staying on task, etc...). My first thought was that there had to be something more to what happened the fist time because that is just not like my daughter to go up and threaten someone, she is a very sweet and loving little girl but now she has punched this kid in the nose for no reason and when I asked her about it she said "I didn't want too, I just did"
I am 14 weeks pregnant and now freaking out that one of two things is going on, neither of which is acceptable- either I'm doing something wrong as a parent- too strict, not strict enough, too much freedom for not enough, not enough "I love you"s or something or I am raising a bad egg and that I refuse to believe but I'm scared
"I didn't want too , I just did".... is it because I'm pregnant? Is she not getting enough attention? Is it because she actually really likes this boy? She is 5 years old and fixing to get herself kicked out of school....
I swear she is not a malicious person and she knew right away that she messed up because she told the kid sorry immediately..... but she is doing things she knows are wrong and I am doing everything I can and trying to take every opportunity to point out good and bad/ right and wrong but apparently it is not doing any good..... and I am at my wit's end on what to do or how to help this from happening again.
