My 6YO DD claims that her piano teacher called her stupid. How should I react? What should I do? :mad:

I complained to the boss when one make-up lesson teacher at my DS' enrichment centre told my son his Chinese was "No good" without any further encouragement. My son, then 5yo, bawled in class as he felt really miserable.

It is not that we are protective, but at such a young age, it is not good to give labels to a kid. I told the boss, even as an adult, I am sure he (that teacher) would be sad if his boss said his work was "no good" in such a direct manner.

Yah, sack the piano teacher and get a more patient one.

Agree! Say "No!" to derogatory terms!

Today happen to be her last lesson with the teacher. Tried to call the centre to speak to her but didn't manage to get her at the centre (thou she is still in the centre) and she called back from her handphone after leaving the centre. She claimed that she didn't said that.....
