I don't understand why parents always want to blame the teacher for their child's misbehavior. I've been on both sides- teacher and mom- and I can't stand hearing parents saying that their child isn't at fault because they act up in class and that the teacher needs to pay more attention to what's going on in the class. The teacher is doing the best he/she can in a classroom of 30 (now-a-days over-crowded)! I don't think any parent could understand how difficult it can get trying to conduct classroom management unless they've been in the classroom themselves- alone! I give it up to teachers for all their hard work, patience, and dedication! It doesn't make things any better when there's that one child who chooses to not listen and acts up because he/she knows the parent will blame the teacher! Who's side are you really on?
