That's it. I need to take flowers or cookies to my son's 4th grade teacher. (He's in 9th now) He has autism and tends to repeat things he hears. Like cuss words on the bus. Teacher & I discussed the problem and played "whack-a-mole" with cuss words for the next month. When we explained *why* certain words shouldn't be used, son would immediately (or at least immediately after the 2nd time ) stop using them. She never once overreacted or sent him to the office. Yep, she needs cookies...

Amazing is right. I’ve observed that in my family, too. I applaud what you said to your teacher that day. Sometimes teachers are unreasonable (and that’s putting it mildly). I have a few ‘teacher stories’ of my own lol. I think that teachers tend to overreact to things that students (of any age) say to them, no matter what it is. And in their overreacting, they tend to give unfair punishments. It’s unfortunate for the students.

That gives a teacher the right to treat a child inappropriately?
I agree with what you said, teachers ARE underpaid...but I am sorry I still don't think that gives them ANY reason to be vengeful to those that they are supposed to be teaching.
