Parent Teacher Conference: Things to Work On
The last parent teacher conference was a bit of a shocker. Princess was only 9 months old, and considered a grape by this particular daycare standards. At the time, her teacher said we needed to work on her eating habits (which I took with a grain of salt). You can read more on that in this post.
This time around I was expecting a little good mixed in with the not so good. Princess has been going through a scratching phase. As I explained in my recent babycenter article, we grew concerned about her hurting her friends. We weren't exactly expecting the "your child needs a therapist" speech. But, was prepared to hear about how to help with Princess's meltdowns. When her teacher said that she's gotten much better, my hubby and I breathed a sigh of relief.
"She's using her words more. If she gets really frustrated, she may push a little. She's gotten much better though" he teacher explained.
Other positive feedback includes:
She's fully potty trained
She follows directions well
She loves to paint, color, and cut with scissors
She enjoys singing and reading
She's very social and plays with everyone
She's very talkative (like her mama)
She participates in class activities
Things to work on:
Putting together puzzles
Jumping and controlled running
I'm not sure what "controlled running" is. But, we're always racing in the backyard. She does pretty well, and usually beats mommy and daddy.
Puzzles have become our fun mommy daughter pastime. Sometimes she likes to pull the pieces apart and scatter them all over the floor. As far as jumping goes, Princess has always had a hard time getting one leg off the ground. I'm so proud at how much she tries. It is kinda funny though. lol
It's so much fun watching her learn new things. I know my baby girl will get there when she's ready.
