What an offensive and stupid comment. Plenty of people are childless due to factors they cannot control. This does not make them any less able to treat children with love and respect or to understand the needs of families.
After almost 7 years of TTC, I got extremely lucky and gave birth to a set of beautiful twins. This birth, as wonderful as it was, did not suddenly transform my brain and heart from a barren, cold wasteland into a bountiful, empathic garden. Had I been an insentive, brutish witch who treated kids like chattel I would still be so after the birth of my twins. Conversely, I know plenty of people with children who cannot seem to understand the basics of treating kids with respect and caring.
There are legions of women and men who long to be the loving, thoughtful, caring parents they know they can be. Don't add to their burdens by slinging such hurtful drivel their way.
Dd continues to thrive at her Montessori school. She's happy, loves her teachers, has had literally nothing but uniformly positive reports and is considered to be one of the sweetest, easiest kids in her room.
I just talked to one of the parents from her old school today. Not much has changed. A couple of parents pulled their kids, and the ones who remain are those who consider Miss B to be a stern and demanding disciplinarian - which is something they approve of . The school did decide to bring a second teacher into her room, however, which is apparently in the works but hasn't happened yet. So maybe there is the recognition about Miss B needing more supervision.
We're just happy to be OUT of there.
|What about proper education for this teacher? We want parents who have had children taken from them seek parenting classes to be reunited with their children. Why would we not want the same for teachers, or people in other professions?|
|while the comment is a bit harsh, i can understand the posters sentiment. I have seen so many many people change their outlook in parenting and how children should behave (or shouldnt) upon having kids (myself included). Its not fair to include all childless people in this general statement, but it is a very common happenstance.|
