Dysfunction personified

A kid was in the office for getting in a fight, which he followed with kicking the principal. His guardian came to the office to pick him up for his suspension, apologized to the principal, and said "I know you can't  hit him but I can." She followed this with a few spanks and this: "Where did you learn it was okay to hit people?"

That quote is verbatim.

  1. As a retired teacher, I understood my students better once I had met their parents. The child late to class had a parent late to a parent-teacher conference. The one who forgot his papers had a parent who forgot to call me to follow up.
