Suspension for a Lego Gun!

Lego Gun

This warning of a 2 weeks suspension for 5 year old, Joseph Cardosa’s lego gun is ridiculous. When I worked in the classroom and later directed child care centers for a well-known church organization, children’s gun play was forbidden. With that said, there were plenty of lego guns. Teachers redirected the gun players to another activity. If they did not cooperate, they received a time-out. We never went to the extreme of suspending a child for gun play. In fact, we never technically suspended a child for anything dealing with behavior. When a child was not allowed in the center, it was due to the parent being at least 2 weeks behind on the childcare bill. Suspension is over the top. Redirection is the proper course of action.
