Now a parent herself, Shona explains that her time as a teacher has shaped the way she cares for her children and communicates with their educators.

Write to Kidspot.com.auNow, I’m not saying I’m perfect (because I’m not) but I’m saying that when a teacher makes a decision about something that concerns my child, I accept it and I support it.

“Oh, and the occasion when I observe some of the other parents and how they interact with the school and the staff, it reminds me of why I left the teaching profession for almost a decade. prior to.”

When a teacher makes a decision about something that concerns my child, I accept it and I support it.

The main harshness of the teaching that Shona broadcasts was when her parents disrespected her disciplinary decisions and challenged her.

To illustrate her point, the former teacher gave the example of a recent incident when a child, who she did not name, confiscated her school iPad on Friday, so she could not Take it home for the weekend.

The student’s mother was furious about the decision so she decided to email the teacher “ask” to know why she was not informed before the decision was made and questioned the choice. of the teacher.

Shona, who disagreed with the parent’s actions, said: “It’s not her arm, or some kind of device that allows her to live, it’s an iPad.

“Why does the teacher need to run this by you? It was the teacher’s decision (and a school iPad) based on what she considers an appropriate reprimand for misuse of the device. Seems pretty fair to me.”

She also believes that even if the decision is wrong, it is also a good learning opportunity for children because in life sometimes other people make bad decisions that affect us and we have to bear the consequences.

Shona also thinks that girls shouldn’t be taught that when she doesn’t like something, her mother will swoop in and complain on her behalf.

She said: “It speaks very loudly and clearly the rules and decisions made by the school and the people who work within it which seem to have no real legitimacy and purpose.”

While this is a concrete example, former teachers pointed out that these situations are all too common.

“Over the past four years, I have seen or heard of so many other parents doing the same thing,” she said.

“It could be about the allocation of prisons, about the way the teacher said something to their children (according to the report), about the distribution of rewards and punishments, about a huge range of reasons. small.

“Another interesting pattern that I’ve noticed is that parent involvement often happens by the same/parents about the same/children.”

It speaks loudly and clearly the rules and decisions made by the school and the people working in it seem to have no legitimacy and practical purpose.

She admits that sometimes it is important to schedule a meeting and clarify something with the teacher, but explains that 95% of the time no action is needed.

Shona concludes with an appeal to all parents on behalf of teachers.

“So as a former teacher, what I beg for is just to respect what the teacher has decided and support it,” she said.

“Don’t sabotage it, don’t challenge it, don’t ask for a PowerPoint presentation of why they made their decision. Let it go.”
