Teacher ’ s heartfelt plea for parents to STOP their ‘ bizarrely lenient attitude toward disciplining children ’. ‘To those who say I took the easy way out’: Mom whose ‘ children were ashamed of me’ loses 162 pounds.

Lately, it seems that many schools are adopting a bizarrely lenient attitude toward disciplining children as well as bending over backwards to accommodate these children ' s and their parents ' every demand.

The reason for her despondency? Though she’s a working mom of three in a farming family, that’s not why she’s so weary, she says. No, the reason for her exhaustion is “that many parents have adopted a bizarrely lenient attitude toward disciplining children as well as bending over backwards to accommodate their children’s every demand.”

The tired teacher took to social media to unleash a long tirade against parents, who are “doing a terrible disservice to today’s young people and to society as a whole” and “are leaving their children’s teachers feeling frustrated, ill-supported and utterly exhausted.”

“Not all of you are going to agree with what I’ve written,” she begins. “Some of you will be downright mad after you read it.”

Many days your children bring the resentment they feel toward you to school with them and they act out against peers, property, or their teachers . Not every parent In a follow-up blog post titled ' Going Viral ' he calls the response to his Open Letter 'overwhelming' and 'staggering.'

Discipline . Special Needs Children . Divorce. Last but not the least, always keep a motivating attitude . Parents like a teacher who can offer them a glimmer of hope when it comes to their child ' s weaknesses instead of demoralizing them.

To Erin’s way of thinking, parents today have been bamboozled—convinced that “if we set limitations for our children, then we don’t love them.” In turn, we don’t trust teachers when they discipline our children.

“If we come to you with a problem or write your child up for disrespectful behavior, don’t automatically fight it. Take a moment to digest it,” she pleads. “Trust me.”

That’s not all. “For the love of Pete, please quit with all the excuses,” she continues. “If you really want to help your children be successful, stop making excuses for them.” She gives an example of a mom who didn’t make her son complete his summer reading assignments, because it had been a “difficult summer” and she was allowing some “important fun time.”

The thing is, today’s kids do spend far more time in the classroom than they do outside, or in recess—and physical activity and unstructured play is important. And whether they’re more spoiled than kids of previous generations is an open question. We know there’s less physical discipline, but they also tend to have a much more regimented schedule, filled to the brim with “enriching” activities.

In any case, parents usually can present only one viewpoint of the world, while good teaching should be based on different attitudes . Thus, when children go to school and have a great diversity of teachers , they learn much more than their parents could probably give them.

A teacher has slammed her 'disruptive' students and their 'rude' parents over their lack of respect for her 'poorly paid' profession in a Facebook rant that's gone viral . Share or comment on this article: Texas teacher ’ s Facebook rant over ‘rude parents and disruptive children ’.

However, there’s definitely no doubt teaching is a tough job, and many teachers don’t get the support they need. (Just take a look at all the strikes happening around the country right now.)

Erin’s impassioned plea clearly resonated with many parents and teachers—the Facebook post has received over 1,200 likes and 1,400 shares so far, as well as many comments from teachers who agree with her tough-love approach. It was even picked up by Love What Matters.

In the end, Erin says, she just wants parents and teachers to work together as partners. “I promise I appreciate the hard work you are doing at home. I promise I am not the enemy. I promise I am on your side. I promise I am cheering your kid on with the loudest momma voice you can imagine. I promise in the end, you and I want the exact same thing. And finally, I promise—if you will let me—to give your child the best education humanly possible.”

Regardless of whether you agree, her message of parents and teachers working in tandem is important—it does take a village to raise a child. And every member of that village deserves the support they need to get the job done.
