Teacher Tells My Son to be Quiet

This is huge. Q-ster’s preschool teacher reported that she told him and his pal to be QUIET during class. This is a child who can chatter non-stop at home, but turns off the sound in a crowd. During his first year of preschool, his teachers didn’t hear him say a single word out loud until he said “thank you” at a school party in January. Yes, school starts here in September.

Of course, I hope that he will follow the rules and be a cooperative student, but it shows how much progress he’s made, that he and his friend, the “quiet ones” in class are comfortable enough to be chatty. About something Star Wars-related, I’m sure.

That's great that he's starting to feel more at home at preschool.

My little one has gone from reserved and shy to sharing personal details about my life with total strangers. All the same, I would rather know that she feels comfortable enough with herself and others to be the chatty little person I know and love.

Love the Q-ster jumping shot.

That picture is just perfect for your post! How cool that he has a friend he feels comfortable talking with.

I love this - both the post and the photo. My oldest is on the quiet side at school too but has opened up in recent months. I love knowing she's feeling more comfortable.

Wow. My daughter is NEVER quiet. Not for even half a minute. And no, I'm not exaggerating, except between the hours of 8:30 pm and 7:30 am, when she is asleep.
