I have a question for everyone and would greatly value your thoughts. The lady who does the canteen once gave my son some lines to do because he wasn't well behaved. I'm not one of these parents who think the kids should be allowed to get away with anything and I would have punished him if I had of known.
However, I don't think the lady who looks after the canteen should be giving my son lines to do as, she doesn't know how much homework he has already got and she doesn't know his level of writing and one child will do the lines in 10 minutes and another will take an hour. Also he really hated school before and is just beginning to sort of like it and start to work so I don't think it's the right message to give "learn to write that way we have got a new way to punish you"!
Another time he told her he was happy it was Tuesday and he could go home and play as he could do his homework on Wednesday morning. She told him the homework should be done on Tuesday evening. I'm not stupid if I get him to do it on Wednesday morning there is a very good reason for that.
Yesterday she wasn't happy as she found my son's coat a bit tight to do up, he had a thick jumper on and his other coat was in the drier as he got it dirty Sunday and she told him he should buy another!
Is it me or should I have a word with her? I told my son if she had any more comments to make about his clothing or how I plan things at home she should tell me directly!
