I received an email from my sons teacher yesterday evening saying that my child got upset with him because he didn't call on him to asnwer a question in class. So, my son called him a racist. I was shocked and very angry, because, for one, his teacher isn't racist and 2 we aren't a racist family. I try to be a very positive influence on my children. I raise them to be respectful and courteous to others and for the most part, they are but my youngest has been saying some really mean things lately and lying about them.
So, he comes home from school and seems to be in a good mood. First I ask him about his day. His answer was, school was ok. I then ask him if he called his teacher a racist and if so, why? My son simply said. I didn't call him a racist. I pause for a while waiting for more but it was quiet so I ask, well, why would your teacher email me to tell me something like that. he said, i don't know, he's crazy! so I went on.... Did you have any type of conversation with your teacher about anything. My son said,no I didn't. I said, Ok son, something doesn't add up. I know that your teacher didn't just decide to email me about your behavior if nothing went on at school today so again, what happen or what was said that prompt your teacher to email me this afternoon. My son said that his teacher thought he heard the word racist but thats not what he said and that he tried explaining that to the teacher but his teacher didn't beleive him.
Why didn't you tell me that when I ask you the first time son? You lied to me. My Son, I didn't lie to you, I told you the truth. Me. You are so called telling me thr truth now but you when I ask you the first time, you claimed to have never had any conversation with your teacher at all that could have lead to that word. But mom, I didn't lie. You ask me if I called my teacher a racist, I said I didn't call him a racist. You ask if we had any conversations in class today, I said no because he was basically screaming at me while I was trying to explain myself so it wasn't a conversation. IS HE BEING A SMART ASS? WAS THIS SOME FORM OF MANIPULATION OR IS IT ME?
