How do I not feel guilty? (cont.)

How do I not feel guilty? (cont.)
And please don't misunderstand, my dd feels bad bc he got hurt like he did & I do 2 & would b upset if it were mine. But if it was an accident (which I know it was bc I know my daughter) should she have been given an ISS (in school suspension)? Am I wrong 2 wonder y the boy wasn't told 2 stop running & if he was, wasn't made 2 sit down? I don't know how 2 feel bc I feel awful that he got hurt, but @ the same x, is it fair 2 suspend my dd 4 something she didn't intentionally do? I feel bad 4 even asking. Please don't judge me.

  • I know you feel bad, but, sometimes its hard for us to understand our children aren't perfect. I work in school, so my first question after reading is this: Why was her foot sticking out? 99% of schools have the same type of seatings. The 2nd is, where were the adults? 3rd, How old are your children. I think I would ask a lot of questions, even to your children. Don't tell them, ask them. Judge you, no way! Some of the best parents in the world have children that mess up, and I am not saying yours did, just in general.Something doesn't sound right with this,and its just my opinion. Ask questions different ways and see if you get the same answer.

  • Its hard to believe your own children can do anything wrong. My nephew keeps getting in trouble at scholl and I know he's a good kid. He just gets picked on and loses his cool. You're fine to feel the way you feel. I feel the same way when my nephew gets in trouble. I always think "well did the other kid get in trouble too for bullying". I'd just stick to the punishment and do my best to make sure nothing happens again
