One of the most significant occupations in our society is teaching.
The next generation of scientists, surgeons, engineers, and entertainers would not exist without skilled teachers. It’s no exaggeration to say that instructors are responsible for our species’ continuing survival.
That said, it’s not an easy profession, at least not for those that want to be the best at what they do. Being a teacher can lead a person to become physically and mentally exhausted, mainly as a result of misbehaving kids.
Teachers frequently remark that parents do not accept responsibility for their rowdy children. Julie Marburger, a former teacher, is a firm believer in this approach.
She took to Facebook to write an emotional post about her experiences, and it has undoubtedly made a difference. In fact, as of this writing, it has been shared over 300,000 times.
Julie Marburger’s blog post about parents and their rowdy kids at school quickly gained traction on the internet.
It’s a warning that everyone should read before blaming teachers for children’s misbehavior.
“I left work early today because an incident with a parent left me unable to continue for the rest of the day emotionally.” I’ve already decided to retire from teaching at the end of this year, and I’m not sure whether I’ll even make it that far. Parents and their children have grown way too disrespectful. Administration always seems to err on the side of keeping parents happy, leaving me unable to do the job I was recruited to do, which is to teach children.
“I’ve included images from the past two days in my classroom. This is how my classroom looks after my pupils have spent the entire day there. Keep in mind that many of the goods damaged or destroyed by my kids are either my personal belongings or items that I purchased myself because I do not have a school budget.”
“Report cards are due later this week, and nearly half of my pupils are failing owing to several (8-10) missed assignments,” Julie says. Although weekly reports have been sent out, emails have been made, and phone calls have been attempted, most of these students and their parents have seemed unconcerned throughout the previous three months.
“However, I’m going to spend the next week receiving calls and letters from enraged parents who want to know why I failed their child.” My boss will demand an explanation for why I let so many people fail without helping them, despite the fact that I’ve done everything I could short of performing the work for them. This is something I’m expecting because it’s happened at the end of every other term so far.”
The irritated teacher continues, “
“Parents must quit coddling and assisting their children at all costs.” It’s a problem that will spread like wildfire throughout our society. It is not fair to society, and much more so to the children, to educate them that this is OK. It will not help them live a happy and prosperous life.”
