Hi there,this may get a bit long so sorry
My 10yo came home the other day with a note regarding parent teacher meetings,we totally forgot about it for the first few days and since the appointments are on a first in first served basis,we got a really crappy time.
Anyway,when i told my son that i may not be able to make it at that time(11:45)
he got upset at me and said,Well my teacher said that if you dont come that means you dont care !! i didnt really know whether to believe that the teacher really did say that or he said it because he was upset...this comment has been on my mind all week..wasnt sure if i should bring it up with the teacher or not...so today was the meeting and i did confront this woman about her comment in a very"im not sure if you said this"way. So she said,YES i DID say that to him only because i thought that he hadnt given you the note !?! i thought,WHAT ?! how dare you say something like that to my son !? you dont know me or my family,how dare you imply that i dont care for my son. ! After her explanation i didnt know what else to say without telling her where to go,and she changed the subject.
So my question is: What would you do? im thinking of maybe going to see the principal about this,i just cant get it out of my head.am i overreacting about this whole thing ?
