She Is Not Used To It
Yea, I know you are probably wondering what I am talking about.
Please read on:
This scenario played out between a teacher and a parent,
TEACHER:Good morning Mrs.Lagbaja.
PARENT: Good morning teacher.
TEACHER: How are you doing this morning Ma
PARENT: I am not too happy
TEACHER: Hope no problem Ma
PARENT: (Points to her daughter) She came home yesterday and complained that you asked her to kneel.
TEACHER: I had to do that because she was very noisy in the class and besides I didn’t want to flog her.
PARENT: Tell her to stop making noise next instead of asking her to kneel because I don’t ask her to kneel at home, she is not used to it.
TEACHER: That was the first thing I did but she she didn’t stop
PARENT: Then you just have to continue telling her to keep quiet.
Are you surprised with what you just read? Or do you share the same view as the parent?
Personally ,I wonder why a mother will go to her child’s school to confront a teacher simply because her child was punished for disturbing the peace of the class.
A punishment as simple as kneeling?
1. Does it mean a child should be left to do as he or she pleases?
2. Is the school only for academic training? Isn’t it supposed to be a place for moral upbringing?
3. Should a parent even accompany his/her child to school each time a child comes home to report that he was punished?
4.Is asking a child to kneel an extreme form if punishment?
Abeg make we relate,let’s talk parents, how do you correct a child who has erred.
