report cards came out the other day. and one of the moms had told me she should punish her son for getting bad grades. I told her he never goes to school it is not his fault. how is he going to learn something when hes never there. today is the second day this week he didnt go!!!!. last night around 6pm all the kids were outside and he had told us he still didnt do his homework. i dont understand it. this mom doesnt work. she doesnt do anything but stay at home and no other kids.. i work, have 3 kids, and still manage to make sure my daughter gets to school and has good grads... would you say anything to her about it?

What is sad is that the child is suffering because of the Parents lack of support & guidance. She should be ashamed of herself. It's hard for you to sit around & watch him being misguided but there is nothing you can do unless you see him mistreated or abused. I hope the school takes the initiative to find out why he is not attending & rectify it. Maybe call the school & anonymously tell them what you are seeing just in case his Teacher is not handling it. sometimes when the School is publicly made aware of a situation they are quicker to correct it.

IDK, I think I would say something. This child is being failed in such a huge way, and I don't know if I could in good conscience turn my back on that.
