    I had a kid who slept in class most days when he came, which was about once a week. I taught in the special ed department, learning and behavior disabilities – juniors and seniors. When it came around for the IEP meeting, we got to the attendance issue first. The mom said" He ain’t coming here to learn nuttin, he come here to play basketball." I asked the kid what he wanted to be when he left school, the kid said, " A pimp or a drug dealer." the mom was alright with that. My consultant said " How are you going to put that into the IEP, you know you have to put it in." I wrote, " …. is going to aim to be a professional basketball star. Should that not work out, he will either go into human services or pharmaceutical sales."

    Kindergarten parent calls, starts off screaming that I am forcing her son to starve doing the school day. When I ask her to clarify, she let’s me know her son brings lunch from home and it is MY rule that he must sit with the girls if he has a bag lunch, so he is refusing to eat. I never had such a rule and kids with bag lunches sit first, he just happened to be the only boy.

    I teach PK. I had a parent tell me during our conference that she had four children and couldn’t handle doing homework with her twins (both my students). I have a whole class and seem to be able to work with them.

    I caught a student cheating. Called the parents. Parents said not possible. Set a meeting to show the evidence. Mom said it is not his fault, we pressure him to get good grades. Boy sat smiling.

    One of my parents said that he is unhappy where he is sitting in class and wants to sit next to a friend. When I explained why we put him there she said that he is sitting in the terrible side of the class that has a bad energy can’t we put him in the middle classroom so he can be more centered and closer to the window by the garden.

    On after school supervision in the parking lot, a mom got mad at me for motioning her to keep moving as she stopped in an unsafe spot and was blocking traffic. When she left she sped up and came so close to me that the side mirror of her vehicle hit me. Lucky for me it was a folding mirror so it didn’t do me any damage. When she got back on the street she almost hit a kid.

    I had a student who called everyone an a$$h@@@ all the time. When I called the mom to discuss it she said" I am so sorry, that little a$$H@@@ I don’t know where he learned that!" I teach Kindergarten
