A Dad's Rant #ParentProblems


With deprivation and war around the world, this gripe definitely qualifies as a “first world problem.” But, it’s time to get a complaint about parents off my chest. #ParentProblems

I try not to be judgey...I really do. However, at my son’s back to school night for his pre-kindergarten class, it was just too difficult. As I sat stooped over in the minuscule chair of a 4-year-old, I did my best to listen as the teacher talked about her expectations for the class.

After the teacher gave her schpiel about what happens in a Pre-Kindergarten class, parents had the opportunity to ask questions. That is when my judgeiness came out...just a bit.

Here are a couple actual statements/questions uttered by a parent in the class:

“My child doesn’t really answer me about what happens at school. Could you send a daily email updating us on what was taught for the day?”

Are you serious? Why would someone think a public school teacher has time for that? And why is it needed? Focus on getting your kid to talk to you more. That’s the parent’s job.

“What are you doing in here to challenge my child?”

WTH? This is pre-kindergarten. Half the kids in here still need help wiping their butts! The only point is to start teaching them routines, manners, and super basic stuff. Challenge your own kid! At school, kids should be learning how to build relationships and develop social skills. I know my kid needs to be challenged daily to get his own damn cup of water...because he’s four!

Everything’s a challenge. Better yet, create your own activities or build your own puzzles to make him prove to you that he's starting to figure things out. No teacher is a miracle worker and we need to do better. Whew, glad I got that off my chest.
