While adults should know the proper way to talk to someone when they’re upset, the same can’t be said for children, and one parent learned that the hard way.
A woman recently shared a note on social media that her co-worker’s son wrote to his teacher after he was disciplined for disrupting a lesson. The six-year-old was upset that his teacher took away his stuff and got very honest about what he thought of her, which caused the mom to be called into a parent-teacher conference.
“Dear Ms. Jones I am angry of you because you took 25 of my humming bird Bucks all because I was talking to Conner,” he wrote (misspellings are his). “that’s no big deal im only 6 I cant be qyet all the time and that makes you a theif and crook.” He added, “you are going to Hell real Hell the burning 1 because you a theif,” noting, “I worked hard for those bucks and my Only prayer in chaple today was that god gets you to hell fast super fast and your new hair cut is Bad real bad, Isaiah.”
This note reminded me the time that I got disciplined by my second grade teacher and it ended with me and a very angry mother. The teacher was yelling at me in front of all my friends for not being able to find a book and I cried. My mom did NOT like the fact I cried. In fact, she didn’t like it so much, instead of writing a note, my mom decided to wait for the teacher to come to work and have a conversation.
So there we were, an hour before school starts. Sitting in a dark classroom waiting for the teacher to enter. When the teacher walked in and turned on the lights, me and my mom sat there staring at her. They exchanged words, and for the rest of the day the teacher treated me like crap. After that incident, the schools started putting locks on classroom doors.
