I can’t understand how ONE parent, or one kid, can ruin a WHOLE school. My school is not the best one I have worked at, but the bosses are chill and I’m fairly happy there.
But there is ONE parent making it hell for me. They expect wonders from their 5 yr old. They keep on complaining about the books, that we need more difficult books, but he can’t even write or read properly yet. They ask some of his books home at night, so that they can review it with him. So the books are always covered in little phonics scribblings etc. They throw away all the art or worksheets that I send home, although some of them are science worksheets, and then they complain that we never do science. I kept on putting it back into his bookbag, until took it out and threw it away in my class.
They gave him huge bowls, and ask us to fill it up. So sometimes he throws a fit when we don’t, and doesn’t want to wait for everyone to have their share before we give him more. This morning he actually asked me to turn on the AIRCON!!! We were all freezing in class, but he sat there with 5 layers of jackets and complained that it’s too hot, that we should put on the aircon. His mom doesn’t want him to take off his jacket.
ARRRGHHHHHHHHHHHH. They spent 5 hours on the phone with my boss in 2 days. What the hell are they doing? Why not just take him to another school???
His brother isn’t at our school. The kid is 9 and his mom keeps on sending me pages of homework to correct and help with. He isn’t even my student…and it is GEPT work. They want a 9 yr old to write the GEPT test next year, so they are 'home-schooling" him, even though they can’t even understand a word when I talk to them.
Do you guys have parents like this at your school??? I hateeeeeeee ittttttttttt. And it’s rubbing off on their kid…he is always telling me the work is too easy, laughing at others when they make mistakes, and telling me I’m garbage. grrrrrrrrrr
