Hey Lady! Nobody is going to spoil your kids like you do. The faster you learn that the world is harsh and nasty place to be the better off you will be. I wish we lived in your world where there are no children that lie when they talk and there are rivers of peppermint and lollipop trees. I remember the days when we used to leave our doors open and trusted that no one would come in and kill us in our sleep. Now I have 5 locks on my front door. Not to mention the security cameras. Hey Lady! Grow up and teach your kids too! The world will hurt you if you give it the chance!
Have you spoken to the teacher yourself?
Well good luck with this issue. I have good news... If your child passes, he will no longer have this teacher again. It's not like your kid is stuck with this teacher the rest of his life.
My opinion... It's not worthy of a letter to the editor, it's not bullying, and it certainly isn't worth putting your name in the paper so the school can place a target on you and your kids. You know the kind of target that says, Hey this kid and his mom are going to be whiners, watch out for them.
First of all I did not expect anything, I was just venting about my situation. Second, I believe my child and the other students because they are not students that get into trouble, these are kids that are in the honor society; which means they are not the kind of students that don't listen and pay attention. Also, as a parent I know when my child is lying. Yes, I will admit to petty stuff like cleaning, but not something like this. And just so you know, we are satisfied we are right, but I don't feel the students should be told they are wrong when they are right.
Try being satisfied that you are right, if you are.. If this is an isolated incident then let it go already. If it happens repeatedly then the principal should recognize this as a reocurring problem. Writing this letter is silly. What did you expect that the Advocate or it's readers would go to battle for you?If your right, then be happy you are.
Oh yeah, try to be careful believing everything your kids tell you. As shocking as this may sound, sometimes they aren't telling you the truth.
