For the past two weeks, Ms. Shen (Zamara’s Kindergarten Teacher) and I have been openly communicating to each other about Zamara’s behavior in class. She described her behavior as “deviant”.
Zamara is a very sweet girl. She is super smart and curious. She has a memory that will shock you and sweeter than cotton candy when she wants to be. She is also an only child…. and I would be lying through my teeth if I told you that Justin, her aunts and uncles, grandmas and I don’t spoil her. We do. She is spoiled to the very core.
Growing up as an only child, she, alone, gets all the attention. She never has to share her toys and even food for that matter. She gets what she wants (already scratched wants to deserves) and needs. She is a very blessed girl and I thank God I have to give her.
Zamara is not new to the school setting, by far. She has been enrolled in daycare/ preschool since the age of 2, if not earlier. I can honestly say that I have never had any kind of problems with her. I have noted that she is becoming demanding and does what she wants rather than what I tell her.
We have sat her down and spoken to her, and told her what everyone expects from her.
Things at school have gotten better but I still here Ms. Shen every other day and its not good news although she recognizes Zamara’s improvements.
This all makes me sad. I will keep on trying. I am going to continue to be consistent and disciplinary and pray for the best.
I wrote a poem for Zamara this morning, I hope she likes it and takes heed to what it really says.
