As I was picking the little one up from school today she started telling me something.
“You don’t hold hands and you don’t hug in school because if you do you will go on an amber or red!”
They have a traffic light system at school. Amber means they’ve been told off. Red means go and see the headmaster. It resets to green at the start of each day.
The little one is very touchy feely. She loves hugs and particularly loves hugging her friends. I think it’s lovely. I particularly think it’s lovely because the whole reason I started therapy with Trevor was because I didn’t want my issues to rub off on her. Clearly they haven’t.
But clearly, this teacher, also has issues with this.
This morning the little one was wandering around the playground holding hands with her friend…who is also a boy. Who she calls her boyfriend.
She’s 5 by the way.
Anyway the teacher obviously doesn’t like it so today told her off and told her not to do it.
The little one is ok with it. She knows that she’s fine doing it outside of school.
But 4 weeks in and so far we’ve had a run in over hair, a disagreement over water at break time (which we now know is common across the UK so not so worried) and now this.
This is going to be a very interesting few years!
