    This year has been particularly difficult with parents. After 32 years of teaching I thought I had heard everything. This year I was told by a parent that I didn’t give her child a third chance to do an assignment that was 4 weeks late that I was prejudiced against children that were adopted. I have 5 adopted kids at home.

    I teach Pre-K and a few years ago I had a little guy whose behavior was, let’s just say that his favorite things to do were growl at you and dig his finger into your skin… I had a conference with mom and dad to talk through the behaviors. Dad came in hung over, took his shirt off, and proceeded to lie down on the floor. Mom then informed me that she was a witch and she had no right to correct her “son” because he really didn’t belong to her, he belonged to her Gods and at 4 years old he was his own person! Needless to say, they moved at the end of the year and the next school year his new teacher called me to talk about how I dealt with this family!!!

    I had an exceptionally difficult parent who had several children in the same school where I taught. The youngest had a number of varying difficulties, academic and otherwise, several of which resulted in increasingly stormy parent conferences. At one of our last meetings, she accused me of being the primary cause of that youngest child’s issues, including some emotional/developmental ones, then stated that her only solace was that her oldest child had “never had to suffer” under my tutelage, adding that she thanked God every night for that lone grace in her world. Only problem was that the child in question had indeed been in one of my classes, and in fact did quite well.

    At a parent teacher conference i had a mom tell me I was to hard on her son. I informed her that he comes to class unprepared and tries to play on his phone or put his he’d down on his desk to sleep. I told her his is capable of Dion’s the work he is just lazy. He has no modifications or learning disability, yet she wanted me to excuse his lack of work because he stays up late and school starts to early. When I recommend giving him an appropriate bedtime or transferring him to an alternative school that starts later in the day she got upset and walked out. A week later he was placed in another social studies class and failed that class with an even lower grade. I guess I wasn’t the problem??‍?

    I have this note framed from a parent. “Thank you for teaching my son to be positive.” This made my day.

    I once had a parent tell me that her child didn’t always understand math the way I taught it, so she bought the teacher book that matched the series. Let’s just say I put a time limit on work after that! Everything due by the end of the day!!

  • Jennifer on

    I taught 1st grade at the time and had a parent ask for time in the day for her daughter to masterbate. (The doctor said it was normal for this age. ) First I said he didn’t mean she should do it at school and then told her there was really no time at school that she could be alone and unattended. 15 years later I saw that same mom in the dentist office and she said she was glad I moved to middle school because I wasn’t really in touch with 1st grade needs. The nerve!
