One night when I picked up Kyleigh from the after-school care facility, I was horrified to see she had two rounds of white wool threads tied tightly around her neck with dead-lock knots. I couldn't untie the thread and had to use a scissor to cut it out. I spoke with the teacher there and asked them politely to watch out for Kyleigh and not let her do that again.
The teacher turned to Kyleigh and scolded her in front of me, "Kyleigh, don't do that again. You are old enough to know that." Then she went back to whatever she was doing and it's like nothing happened.
Really? I know Kyleigh is old enough to know that, but she is still only 6. And I thought the teacher's responsibilities also included watching out for kids. Besides, this is the after-school care, so she's not really teaching anything. She's more like a care provider to me. Did I have the wrong expectations?
