what a ridiculous comment. My oldest was four when he first cried because he thought his little brother was hurt............ and it wasn't guilt. He had nothing to do with the hurt


Yeah i know. Blew me away. Not my observations in the slightest.


Are you sure the parent in question knew what the word even meant?

I hope that bitch who was running their brothels for them gets raped with a cactus.

The teacher too! I don't believe that they understand the word to mean what it actually means.

As a part of my work I've had to deal with several teachers (outside of schools) who've rented properties from me, while some are great, all I can say is that I feel sorry for a lot of the kids of others. Absolute morons who should never be allowed near a classroom.

Well this teacher was generally ace but he represents (as do the parents) literally the philosophies of the school system's founder and much of it doesn't real hold up to modern day scrutiny. They place tremendous emphasis on the age of the child and the physiological and psychological benchmarks or tendencies expressed by those ages. They're right more than they are wrong ... and whatever they're doing, these are really, really lovely kids.

It's a trade-off. We just fill in the empty spaces.
