I am just chasing some ideas for what people do to deal with difficult parents..I am a teacher, I love my job and class, I won't say where I am but anyway moving on. I have had a rather rough day (not as rough as some of course) with a child/ parent in my class. This child has gone home ( on a number of occasions) a told flat out lies about what myself and other kids have 'done' to this child. I am never given the opportunity to defend myself or even discuss these issues with the child before his Mum comes ranting and raging to see the principal and been has tried to get me fired before. Te child is apparently 'scared' to tell me the issue because I 'protect' the other child...completely untrue. I apply my classroom rules the same with every child and am extremely approachable.
Sorry for the rant, I am just sick of this parent treating me like garbage. Any suggestions on what I can do? My stomach has been churning all day, I bend over backwards for this child and this is what they do!
