I am too angry to sleep.
I got a call from the school nurse today, that my young son was sick and wanted to come home. I was at work and unable to leave, so Grandpa went to
get my little one and he slept until I picked him up. This was 1 1/2 hrs after the call from the nurse. We came home and he tells me that at recess,
he really had to poop and told the teachers on duty, but they wouldn't let him back into the building until he had put away the balls. My son is
very respectful of adults and aims to please. As a result of these control freaks, he could not hold it and shat himself. When they finally let him
in, he cleaned up the best he could and went to the nurse because he was "sick".
How is it ok to demand respect from children, to the point that they soil themselves, for some personal power? This will be forever engrained in
his mind. Imagine someone barring you from the restroom to THAT point where there is no more control. As adults, we have the buffer of past
experience to shield us from the pain of the worst kinds of humiliation. We guard and protect ourselves a bit. Children are open and innocent and
TRUSTING. How can these "adults" not also respect their most basic needs? You wouldn't treat a dog that way. Yet somehow, it is alright to do
this to a child.
I e-mailed the principal and I am sure to get some blathering excuses for the "responsible adults'" behavior. It just makes me sick. why shame
good children? Laziness? incompetence? Power? It is deplorable!
