Parents Gotten Into a fight with their child's teacher

It baffles me when I had an experience of a parents quarreling with their ward teacher over the child behavior at home. Seriously, parents should know their responsibility when it comes to child upbringing rather shifting blame to their child’s teacher of the child misconduct.

Few months ago in my son’s school, I witnessed a father of a child who loses self control and gave a female teacher the most loudest slap I have ever heard in my entire life on her right cheek in the presence of other parents, teachers and students.

We were all dumbfounded, no matter what the situation is she does not deserve such a treatment from the ward’s father. I was later informed the child change to another school.

The teacher lost respect from the child fellow classmates due to that unfortunate incident. It’s not wise of a parents going around to slap a teacher, there are other ways to resolve issues that will not have an adverse effect on the child in question.

Parents should be fully aware they are the role models for them as such the way parents behave and talk at home will have a great impact on the children, because children are imitators especially when they’re in their tender age.

Young parents these days fall in such category moreover, they have to be enlighten of the danger of blaming their child teacher all the time. We’re all human’s we have feelings, abusive, swearing words or be physical with your child teacher may have a negative effect on the upbringing of your child especially if the parents are the busy type.

This is the reason a psychologist has come up with the different roles of a parent and that of a teacher. Be acquainted with the differences below;

It is AT HOME that children should learn to say:

  1. Hello

  3. Good evening
  4. Please
  5. May I
  6. Sorry
  7. Forgive Me
  8. Thank You Very Much
  9. Thank You

Again AT HOME children learn to:

  1. Learn to eat

  3. Have personal hygiene
  4. Not throw waste on the ground

Still AT HOME children learn to:

  1. Be organized
  2. Take care of their belongings
  3. Not touch other people’s belongings
  4. Respect the rules
  5. Speak their mother tongue(s), master their culture and ancestral spirituality

Children express their feelings through facial expressions

In addition to these topics, teachers are meant to reinforce what the student has learnt at home!!!

BECAUSE, it is from what they’ve learned at home that he/she will be respected, and that he/she will respect the life, freedom, and property of all.

It is high time for us as a parents to reduce the trouble of TEACHERS in school, so they can give our children qualitative grooming. We cannot continue to overloading them with failure in our responsibilities as parents.

In Conclusion:
Religion also plays a vital role in the upbringing of children in the society therefore the home, school and religion are the major foundation of every child’s formative years. They walk along each other’s path and are always connected…

But, life pressure from different angle is making them shift responsibility tactfully to weigh the other down, not fair at all.

Most of those attributes mentioned above are in a way in the school curriculum in some of their modern books, such as Social Behavior, in Kindergarten, Social Studies, Morals and Ethics, Civic Studies and so on…

Home, School, and Religion are always connected in every child’s formative.
