to the teacher? Some boys at school are calling my dd "kissy girl" and have been for quite a while. I've told her tell them she doesn't like it and walk away. She has and they do it again the next day. For background, last year in fall '05 she was having some separation issues and we read the book "The Kissing Hand". I drew her some lips on a small piece of paper so she had a kiss from me when she needed it. Some boys saw it and started calling her "Kissy Girl". I gave her the same instructions last year hoping if they got little or no reaction it would go away. Then I hoped it would be forgotten over the summer. No such luck... It bothers her (not to the point of tears or anger but it bothers her enough to mention it to me) and I'm afraid of what people might think of her in the years to come if it doesn't stop. It doesn't exactly seem like they're being friendly or kidding with her, they're being just plain mean.
The teacher isn't usually out at recess with the kids but she might be able to pass the word on to one of the playground monitors. What do you think?
