at daycare, and when my husband told me, I wanted to cry and beat the shit out of that little shit. Okay, I know I can never, but the thought seriously crossed my mind.
Sky’s more vocal now, so when my husband picked her up, she whimpered to him and brought him to a random girl a few years older than Sky, and said she kicked sky in the chest. My husband told her in front of the girl to not cry and when she does it again, tell the teacher. The caregiver heard in the background and as my husband left, she asked the little girl if she hit Sky, but my husband didn’t stick around. I swear, men just don’t know how to handle things. I would have looked at the girl, tell her straight up that hitting was bad and that i was telling her teacher and mom/dad. Then I would tell Sky what my husband said. Then I would go straight up to the teacher and make sure they were aware of the situation. Towards the end of the day, they bring all of the children to one big room to watch a movie until their parents picked them up.
For me, I just want to cry for her. Everyone is telling us to teach her how to fight back, but that is not the answer. If we teach her that, it’ll become a habit, and she’ll resort to violence every time, and there might be that one situation when the other person has a gun or knife, or what if my own kid uses one? I don’t want her to think that it is ok to hit. She will learn self-defense, but I want it to be when she can understand when and when she cannot hit someone.
But ughhhh I just want to punch that little shit haha. Tomorrow when I drop Sky off, I’ll make sure to know that the head of director is aware of the situation. I’m so glad Skyla is more vocal now. This pisses me off, and why we don’t want Skyla to be in an environment that can’t be controlled to our liking. This is the real world I guess, and we can’t keep her sheltered. We just have to raise her and prepare her for every situation. But damn…that little shit…I’m going to make sure Skyla show me who it is tomorrow.
