    In my DS1 prep class they have to wear velcro shoes.

    I think my son will be wearing velcro until grade 2 at least.

    Yep i would of hoped the teacher would of tied the shoe laces, it is a tripping hazard especially for my sons.

    I wasn't going to reply in this thread as i have tied many a lace but I sort of feel I have to. I have been a teacher for the last 20+ years in various settings, currently teaching in the lower school at a primary school now and I can say that I don't wipe noses. It's primary school and I happily point them in the direction of the tissue box and will even say "ok, now blow" but wipe their nose? No

    A huge thank you to working class!
    Last yr I taught grade 2 and I said no to tying shoe laces. For two reasons... 1. They should know how to tie their own laces! If they don't, it is a bit of a concern. Especially if it is out if laziness! 2. Hygiene. Imagine the laces walking in the pee when they go to the toilet.
    I made a shoe and put laces on it and got their friends to show them.

    I'd be really upset for dd if she wasn't given assistance in areas she struggles with, and heartbroken for her if it led to her being harmed. Imagine being a small child, needing help with a task, being denied that help by the growups they look up to, then breaking a bone as a result of not receiving that assistance. Not saying they are paid too much, money has nothing to do with this. I work with children from birth through to teens because I want to teach them, care for them, give assistance where needed, and be a safe person in their lives. I would hope anyone else in a caring proffession feels the same.

    On the topic of blowing/wiping noses, many develop that skill by 4. Tying shoe laces is different. My brother didn't get it until year 4. My dd only picked it up just before starting year 3.

    Ah hello did anyone read the post I responded to? The poster was saying that they refused to assist with nose blowing or shoe laces, but we should thank them for doing their regular job. And I was saying its great they do their job, but of they expect extra thanks then I would give it for some
    Kindness. Honestly you think there is teacher bashing running rampant? Every thread I have ever seen criticizing a teacher has ended with teachers coming on and saying peoria have no business criticizing teachers. Cause they are all awesome of course. No bad eggs whatsoever ever. It if they are bad they have been driven to it by our snotty wee soaked shoelace wearing kids.
    It's Velcro shoes for us for sure. And I stand by my comment, if a teacher ever cam out and said thy flatly refuse to touch my child's face with a tissue or tie their laces, I would be out the door. And yep they would probably be happy to get rid of such a fussy and non compliant parent.

Then they made her wait until I got there - which was a 45 minute drive. I was most annoyed. Why would they make a child sit in it for 45 minutes instead of allowing her to clean herself up. (Note also this typically occurred three times a week until she finally got to see a specialist.)
    Thats disgusting. I am going into an industry where i shall be dealing with urine, faeces and who knows what else and i could never let someone sit in their urine or faeces for that long.

    Maybe no-one ever taught the (thread starter's) child's teacher how to tie their laces?

    Oh boy. Thank goodness my DDs teachers are lovely, caring people who don't mind doing a little bit extra and treat my kid with the respect she deserves.

    I am now truly disgusted by some of the attitudes expressed by teachers (who I'm assuming are usually also mothers themselves) in this thread.
