I am not condoning the behavior...BUT...have you been around HS or competitive sports recently. That comment seems, sadly, mild to me and I have heard worse from parents. We (the general we) have gone off the deep end with competitive athletics. By the time a kid is competing at the HS level reason has gone out the window. Spent 15 years with 2 kids in highly competitive sports, saw and heard things that just make your skin crawl. From a parent removing a child's cast so they could wouldn't be "ejected" from a game, to a coach that tied kids feet together so they would "learn" the proper stroke.
It is time that parents stood up to this kind of behavior but not many will..just look at the new hit shows...Dance Moms, ?Cheer, Toddlers & Tiaras.
