Oh gosh. I meant it was weird for me to go back and read this,
not for someone else to have brought it up.
Sorry for the confusion.
That's OK, Boomer.
I'm actually glad you posted to the thread.
It was good for me to look historically at this.
Yeah; when someone posts to one of my old threads,
it usually makes me happy, that someone has brought it back to life,
regardless of whether he is pro or con.
(Actually, that just happened, by someone who I have on Ignore.)
If people judge me harshly I don't really care but I can't say that
it doesn't bother me, or sometimes scare me, people can be very
meddlesome these days. And yes, parents are judged by their
kid's mistakes, and even their non-mistakes.
I find that hard to believe
; u come across as such a pleasant person.
How can that BE ??
He was treated very unfairly at school last week
over an incident that didn't even happen at school.
If it did not happen at school, then it is questionable
that it is any of their business.
They wouldn't let him explain so he left class, went to the office and called me.
I went there, talked to him, talked to some of the teachers involved, came home,
called Mr. B -- at 3:00 we went up there and made them listen while Mo explained,
which was all he wanted to do in the first place.
That is ADMIRABLE
, that he does not let people walk all over him
and it is very admirable that u and your husband defended him.
I wanna give u and your husband hearty cyber-handshakes.
Thay don 't sound like being rational comes naturally to them.
IT IS TO YOUR CREDIT
that u stood up
for your little boy.
There r some parents who r not that good.
I am sure that in the years n decades to come he will REMEMBER U
for your support. Possibly, if u feel like it,
when he feels abused by unreasonable people u might
do something to counteract his emotional pain by taking him out
to a good restaurant, or a movie or whatever he enjoys in life.
I have discovered that sometimes making another person happy IS FUN
U put me in mind of my own good fortune,
when I was about to begin attending school for the first time.
My mother advised me to stand up for my rights, if I felt abused,
and that if a teacher were guilty of that, I shoud tell my mother
and she 'd tale care of that. I did, and my mother did, for real.
It was not just theoretical.
I remember my mother with love, respect and gratitude, for that.
Some school teachers r of questionable mental stability,
like my second grade teacher, a youngish woman named Miss Raid,
whom we learned to expect that about 7 times on a typical day,
she closed her hands into fists, brought them up to chest height,
closed her eyes very tightly, dropped her jaw down
and let out a scream continuous for about 25 seconds;
maybe her effort to emulate an air raid siren.
You'd probably like Mo, David.
From your representations, I already
Is that short for a name, like Pat,
or is that his whole first name ?
His walking out of class as u described it is awe-inspiring !
He deserves a gold
Maybe he 'd like to become a trial attorney, if he likes to argue.
