yea, imagine the kid hearing mommy say that to daddy while they are both in their bedroom........
Sorry - all I've got is kittens - and I'm NOT demonstrating that to my son!
DURRR, he said something that could easily be construed as threatening to another student, stfu and teach your kid not to say retarded things.
You should have blamed it on him watching Full Metal Jacket every day before bed
Well we haven't had a post from SunnyD saying his kid says "I'll suck your c0ck for a thousand dollars" So the wife is at least holding back there.
Tell your son to not make idle threats, instead he should be a man of action.
My first impression was that your kid is nuts, and good to have him at the office, and then I remember hearing, and making that same threat on more than on occassion as a kid, with absolutely zero intent to follow through with it, so unless your kid is a very young delinquent I can see that they overreacted on it. I bet a lot of teachers have heard this before.
If the parents are intelligent enough to teach the kid.
When your child is in school it is up to the teachers to reaffirm right and wrong. They are not just babysitters, making sure nobody hurts themselves while Mommy and Daddy aren't there. They need to bear some responsibility in this as well.
Not necessarily... there are pleanty of rec. sports leagues and other activities they kid can be enrolled in to learn social skills.
Homeschooling is an absolutely awful idea. Everyone I know that was homeschooled has a serious lack of social development, and just in general has less interaction with other people, thus less friends. Terrible.
Yeah, you are pretty much guaranteed that your kid will grow up knowing less than you do.
I used to say that. It's a real concern, but apparently most home schooled kids do not have social problems, because they spend a sufficient amount of time in extra curricular activities elsewhere.
So many more people are home schooling that it's easier than ever to do it. Tons of material is available to help them along, and direction offered to parents/home schoolers. I suspect the biggest thing against it is lazy parents, and more often than that most parents can't do it. I can't really imagine that we'll ever have the opportunity to home school our kids, unless one of us stops working, and I think the money afforded with two incomes more than makes up for it (a portion of which could easily go into quality private schooling. For us it goes without saying that we'll have our kids in a private school or a high quality and well respected public school [of which there are few!]).
If someone jokingly said that to your kid and then the next day he brought his dad's gun to school and killed him, you'd be complaining to the school that they didn't do enough, and the kid shouldn't have even been allowed in class etc...
Exactly. They cannot take that chance, however small.
The country has changed. Anything and everything is cause for uproar.
My town in March of '98. Heard of the Westside shootings? Kids that threaten other kids lives tend to raise eyebrows these days. A ex-coworker and friend of mine lost his daughter in that shooting. Ask him if he thinks this is just a idle threat
PC is out of control!!!
Pretty soon we won't be able to say anything to anybody without a happy-happy, Joy-Joy tone. :|
Geez, kids cartoons used to use toned down versions of "I'll kill him" - "Ooooh, I'll murdulize him!!!" Looney Tunes featured Elmer Fudd using a shotgun point blank on the star characters. The Three Stooges featured constant acts of physical violence and assault. And it was funny as hell.
But see, parents also should make it clear that it's just TV. When someone is hit on the head with a TV, it's not a good thing - unless it happens to Moe, and he just shakes his head and slaps the offending character and bonks his head good. Then it's funny.
Oh yeah? Well I went to public school, and I have all those attributes! So there!
Hey, waaaiiiit a minute....
Private school maybe? I've developed a healthy distaste for government, because it's like having a monopolistic organization in charge of progress. What motivation is there to progress, and make sure everything's done right, when you know that next year, you're just going to get more funding to do the same, or maybe even less, work?
sounds like they need a kindergarten cop there...
You're an idiot. Try remembering that you were a child once who said a lot of stupid things. We all did. Until you can remember that you will remain an idiot.
