AIBU.....or obsessive!... to spot yet another long blooded scratch down my DD chest and think that this shouldnt still be happening. DD (2.5y) goes to nursery 2 days a wk (room of 2-3 yr olds), last wk i posted that it had happened 4 times in 4 wks (once a wk) and then this wk when i take her it happens again. Do i continue to send her when clearly the 'safe environment' they r providing isnt as safe as I'd like, or am i being a fussy mother and kids will be kids? For those who havent read past thread, I've been told it isnt just one child doing the scratching, it isnt just my child getting scratched and my DD isnt retaliating and 2 of the 5 went unnoticed by staff. Should i be bothered? or is it 2 yr olds being 2 yr olds?
It is possible ish, generally shes happy there, she goes in smiling. And I'm torn between thinking thats it I'm taking her out and whether if i moved her it'd just happen there and whether i'm being OTT. There is nowhere to move her to really, she'd go nuts, shes very wary of strangers and gets clingy if anyone so much as says hello in tesco. She'll move up to next room in sept, but i suspect so will the child (maybe more than one).
Well I picked her up from nursery yesterday and she had 3 fresh stripes down her face and about half a dozen little ones up her arm. The nursery staff seem to have changed tactics, call me cynical. But they insist this time that my DD started it and the other child came off worse. R they just saying that cos they know how close i am to taking her out? Or maybe my DD has learnt thats how the others get their own way? or maybe I just sound like one of these mums whose kids can do no wrong? not my usual stance, believe me. Do I shut up n put up? Do i take her out? Do i ring nursery today and ask for more info on the incident?
I don't think this is on. Whether your DD stared "it" or not. They should have an incident book where stuff like that should be logged. If the children have this amount of scratches, my feeling is they must have fought for a bit before the staff intervened. If your DD starts "to learn to fight" at Nursery, I'd take her out.
