ARRRGGGHHH. Frustrations. Ok folks, how about some advice here.
My niece, she is 4.5. In 4K at our local school and since Christmas has just been a royal handful. She's totally boy crazy, which is bizarre because that's not encouraged in her homelife. She's had these two boys as her best friends from day one, but suddenly they are boyfriends, and she blows kisses and follows them around. The school separates them, but it's not really helping. Any ideas?
Additionally to that, last week when her mama dropped her off at school, the teachers were walking towards the entrance door. My sister told her daughter to run and catch up and she drove off. The school uses a flag to indicate if you have to stop and sign your child in and the flag wasn't out.
Weeeeellllllll, the teachers didn't turn around to see a little girl behind them, the doors shut and my niece couldn't get the door open. She was locked out of the school and had no idea what to do. She sat on the grass outside and cried. One of her classmate's mother was running behind and thankfully saw her crying in the grass, bringing her into the school with her son.
CAN. YOU. IMAGINE. My sister didn't find out until the parent got word to her 4 days later through a mutal aquaintance my sister works with - and the horror of what all COULD have happened... Oh my gosh, we were all just sick with the "what ifs." God really took care of this situation, protected my niece and brought her classmate's mother there just at the perfect time. My sister has spoken to the school and there is a new policy where an administrator will make a "last lap" outside after the first bell rings and the teachers who slipped out of duty early (or so it seems) were all called into the admins office for a conversation.
I'm hoping my sister also realizes you can't drive off until you know she's in the school, but that's another issue outside of this particular one. Heaven help, just thinking what could have happened...
Thank you, Lord. You are so good to us.
