Jeff’s daughter Monroe joins preschool

Monroe was sent to an elite Montessori school after she turned 3. But the reports are that his daughter has been expelled from the school and the reason is said to be her inappropriate behavior.

Jeff opened about the concerns of Monroe’s school on one of the episodes of his SiriusXM radio show Jeff Lewis Live, the Flipping Out.

He expressed,

“She’s been crying, she’s confused, she doesn’t know who’s picking her up … there’s been a little bit of a regression.”

Adding,

“I’m like, ‘Oh my God.’ And then it’s just on my face — I’m concerned, I’m worried,” the father of one continued. “They went back to get her and honestly if [Scott] wasn’t there, I probably would’ve started crying because I’m very, very worried about Monroe.”

Further, Jeff feels that he has picked up the wrong school for his daughter after her behavior. And says he will be cautious to pick her next school,

“I picked the wrong school. Next time, I’m going to trust my gut. I felt like the school was too regimented, too structured. I think, it’s not a college prep course. It’s preschool.”
