And going to “the” school (sorry another thread) and being angry will be seen as being very different from that of a local parent. They’ll talk about irrational, over emotional foreigners wanting everything their way and having no respect for the way things are done in Taiwan.
Heck, I’d want to serve up their nuts for supper.
I can see it already starting with my son, and he’s three. Bigger kids gather round and stare at him and picking on him. He’s no pussy and his mouth runs off a bit much, but I worry because the kids who get their jollies doing this are much older. Damn straight, I step in before things get out of hand. But, there is only so much that a grown man can do or say to children, actually I can’t “do” anything really can I, it is all words.
When we are out I’ve got into the habbit of discussing other peoples kids behavior with those with me at a volume that the parents of the little pricks can hear. Kind of a slap on the face to their parenting skills and social mores.
So, if I were DB, I’d take this thing as far as it can go. Damn sure I wouldn’t drop it. I’d want to make sure that the offenders parents are damn straight about what is, and is NOT, acceptable behavior. But - then there is always a danger that the whole thing could be turned into a whole “us” and “them” kind of thing.
I, for one, would like to know how this turns out.
Common sense is something that isn’t very common anymore.
