    Default *spin off*- teacher parent relationships

    I was derailing the other thread so i thought I'd better spin off. WDYT about teachers dating/sleeping with (single) parents? I think it's nobody's business. As I said in he other thread, it's no more a conflict of interest than a teacher who is also a parent. Also, if a teacher sleeps around, that is their business, not their employers or the parents of their students. Thoughts?

    Meh!
    As long as they keep it professional and don't favour their love interest's child then I couldn't care less!

    If the teacher is say sleeping with one of his students mum..I think that's a bit crap for the kid ..
    If the teacher is sleeping around with lots of diff people..I would think less of the teacher..as a person that is..

    I think that it is a conflict of interest, I'd feel that objectivity towards a child could be clouded in the case of a relationship.
    I also don't necessarily agree with teachers having their children at the school in which they work, and would never do it personally.

    Oh and I am a beginning teacher.

    I know that some people probably could remain objective, myself included, but I would rather not put myself in that position.

    Personal choice I guess

    The other thread was talking about casual sex. A teacher sleeping with various parents is worse than a parent sleeping with various teachers *to me*. It was in response to one person's post.

    Sure, that's why I did a spin off, I was interested in what others thoughts were.

    I don't care either way. I've also known teachers to date exstudents (started dating after finishing school though) I find that a bit more shocking but more common than you would think ...
    My mum was telling me about a lot of teachers from high school who married her classmates (we went to the same school and had many of the same teachers).
