Have you ever been so pissed off that you stuttered when you tried to talk? That's about the same as I get when I see these things. Seriously. I
understand fully your jimmies being rustled. Most of these parents handle it much better than I would. I would probably have been put in jail before
the sun set.
I have always been the type that would ask my daughter what she did to cause whatever reaction she would be talking about when she came home from
school. Here in my house, she is a perfect angel. I am not so old that I do not remember being an angel in my mother and father's house and acting out
when I was in school. So I would go to bat for the teacher over my daughter any day of the week if she was in the wrong.
I am not one of those parents that go to the school every other day asking why the teacher looked at my child cross eyed, why they didn't let her turn
her homework in late, etc.
BUT - I will also be the first one to go to bat for my child if she was wronged or mistreated by the teachers. This would be one of those occasions. I
do not make a habit of showing up at school and I have only had to do it 3 times in 12 years, but I would have shown up for this and hell would have
had no fury. She has 2 years left to graduate. I watch the news daily hoping that she can last those 2 years without incident. I don't want to have to
pull her (and she does ask to be pulled) out during her junior and senior years.
School shootings will start happening between the parents and teachers if this shiite keeps escalating. I would bet money on it. A lot of people will
take being walked all over that will not stand for the same happening to their own children.
I think they really need to start realizing that "one size fits all" is neither fair nor right, and that needing to control every single aspect of
children's behavior/mannerisms is not going to accomplish anything positive from the children or parents. People are not machines and chicken nuggets,
pop tarts, and pencils are not firearms. At this rate any movement made by a child can be determined to be threatening and that is just ridiculously
so far off the charts stupid it isn't funny.
Geez.. Apologies Domo... I just went on and on. Sorry.
