A John Ross Production
Your 8 year old son James has been attending a summer daycare. He did not want to go but due to your work schedule you were only able to arrange someone to watch him two days a week, Thursday and Friday.
He spends the other three days at the summer daycare. You explained to him that he would probably have fun and make friends and that you were sorry you couldn't make other arrangements. The first week went pretty well he had some fun and didn't get any pink notes. A pink note is given when a child has done something wrong and the parents need to be informed.
However Tuesday when you picked him up the staff in the afternoon, who isn't the same staff as the morning, tells you that he had issues listening to the teachers and was being rude and disruptive to the other children. You take James home and discuss with him appropriate behavior you tell him you are letting him off this time because you know he didn't want to go, but the next time you get a bad report he is getting spanked.
James is clearly scared and agrees. When you drop him off Wednesday morning the head of the program comes to see you and apologizes but says that there was a miscommunication between the morning and afternoon staff and she hands you a pink note. It says that during the day your son was talking inappropriately, refusing to do what he was told, and making fun of a special needs child. Even though you had the talk, will there be spanking?
