Sorry for killing the mood of this thread with that last post. The little girl is fine. She moved in with an aunt :-).
Anybody who tries to tell you that they are the way or they are the light has, obviously, not met the indigo who has mastered the power of FREEWILL.
STOP (ask me how): Hidden Content
be careful of your disposition when you ask your daughter what's going on in class. When kids seek to annoy adults, they do so by reading your disposition. If you think she is choosing not to listen as a means to annoy the teacher, then ask your daughter if that is true. I mean, as long as your daughter dosnt intend to annoy YOU, I would imagine she will tell you truthfully. Despite the fact your daughter is an indigo, it gives her no right to be disrespectful, and you need to express that to her. but before that, ask what her conflict is with the teacher. It may be that she is just having problems with the students, and expresses her annoyance with the teacher. I used to do that. (who knows why.) Anyway, just as indigo's dont like to be lied to, they don't like to be told theyre wrong witout reason. So, come to her terms and ask what's going on in class. If she is being deliberately negative in class, figure out her reason why. then explain to her why it isnt good for her to act that way. she may always be hardheaded, but she will prefer reason to simply being told she is wrong. and try to sympathise with her if you can. let her know youre on her side.
so, you probably already knew all that, sorry if that was useless. lol.
just felt pulled to answer
Montessori school might be what she likes. School can be harsh if you don't fit in and often will turn a blind eye if people are mean to you for not fitting in and may tell you to put your child on drugs.
If you must keep her in that school then you will have to coach her at home and teach the importance of listening. Also quiz her on what she learned in class. Set up rewards for listening in class and paying attention.
People often got the impression I was not paying attention because I would daydream alot or go off into my own world but I was listening.
Conformist schools are alot harsher and will bring up all of these negative things about your child if she is out of place or not exactly like the other kids where as montessori schools have a more tolerant and understanding approach.
Spank her butt! Thats what my mom did to me and it worked well. I was "bad" everyday at kindergarten and the beginning of 1st grade, my teachers loved me as well but everyday they would tell my parents I was bad (because they loved me and wanted me to change my ways) and so everyday I would go straight to my room when my mom picked me up and get a spaken on my bottom. 3 smacks. Then my mom would leave me in my room until I stopped crying and then she would give me a nice warm bath ahha. It works after awhile
ho it is probably just the school that do not listen to her
