So a parent is annoyed because she saw on Tapestry that her summer born 4 year old son, in reception, was dancing around in a dress. She told me it’s not ok in her culture (eastern European) and her husband is a strict Muslim so they’re upset this occurred. I explained it was one occasion and he was exploring the role play and he chose to dress up. My TA observed it as he was exploring the role play, with others, using his imagination. Just saw today she added a comment on Tapestry saying they disagree with him wearing a dress and they aren’t happy with the school. I know there’s nothing wrong with it, it’s just a child exploring and pretending. He has a little sister who no doubt dresses up too. I’m not going to tell him not to dress up if he wants to. But, this was one occasion. He hasn’t done it again. Maybe I should steer him away if does try to put a dress on again, out of respect for the parents wishes. Any thoughts? I’m going to meet with the parent on Monday and sort this out. I’ll remove/hide the observation if they want. I’m new to teaching so any advice would be great. Thanks!
