I Hesitated Posting This In Here, Because Ya'll are CRAZY!

BUT, I need more input, so..... Here goes....

^^ This is the letter that Joey's (DS's) teacher made him write to me, regarding an incident at school today.

It says:

My friend Kaden talked about girls body parts in a song and I repeated it and got into trouble. I felt sad and cried and I felt bad that I cried and cried and cried. So when she made us make this note I realized what would God do? Then I prayed to God I was sorry. It made me so sad. I really hated myself. It made me angry. Now me and Kaden can't sit with eachother.

*SIGH*

Sooo.... DS hands me this note when he got home from school. :-/

I asked him what he said (half expecting that he MUST HAVE said "pussy" or something completely vulgar, NO?)

I mean: the teacher apparently gave him a good old tongue lashing for this horribly AWFUL word, seeing as how the poor kid "cried & cried & cried" RIGHT?

I mean, WHAT WORD could a 7 year old boy say that would warrant a teacher to discuss it in such length, that he writes the words "I hate myself" to his own mother?!?!?

Apparently.... That word is "BOOBS!"

YES, "boobs!"

Ok ok.... Save the jokes about how Robe's love for these female funbags somehow inadvertantly skipped down to my child...... I know, I know.... Such a councidence.... *snickers*

BUT, seriously.....

I do not understand (NOT EVEN AT A PRIVATE SCHOOL) how it is possibly acceptable that a teacher remove herself from the rest of the classroom (which she explained in HER letter to me) to tongue lash my child to the point of TEARS & (let's'not forget) HATING HIMSELF, all over the word "BOOBS"!?!

AND, to add insult..... My DS wasn't even the one who snuck that silly little word into the song! His friend Kaden did & Joey repeated it.....

*facepalm*

Am I being one of those annoying-ass moms whose kid (in her mind) never does anything wrong (even though he's a little shit-head)!?!?!

OR.... Is it fair to say that i'm allowed to be a bit put-off over a teacher making my son feel so awful over such a silly word?

If be pissed too. Boobs isn't that big of a deal. (atleast to me) Little boys do things like this...they are BOYS. I think if it were me, I'd ask the teacher to please let me know if any other instances arise, and if they did I would deal with them at home.

I agree with you completely... I would be rather upset that she brought your DS to tears and feeling bad about himself over the word boobs!!!

I would be having a nice little meeting with that teacher and she would be getting a tongue lashing from me. To have my child say he hates himself for saying 'boobs' even if he had said 'pussy' she took it above and beyond to me!

 That is pretty ridiculous.  It's not like he's said tits, or titties, or something even a little vulgar like that.  Just boobs.

I'd be calling the school and telling them to contact ME before ANY punishment like that is given again.
