So a friend of mine is complaining about her sons teacher on facebook. This isn't the first time. She says that her son is bored because he isn't challenged and because of this he acts up. Today she complained about the following: Watching Polar Bear Express and making gingerbread houses. Because of this she thinks the adults aren't taking school seriously so neither should her son. She hates that he has nearly 2 weeks off from school etc. Her exact quote was "If the adults at school aren't taking each school day seriously why the hell should he. I'm tired of grounding him for acting up when he's bored. They will either have to learn how to challenge him, or deal with him themselves." It just irks me because I feel like it isn't the whole picture and it feels like she's trivializing the work teachers do. I know I shouldn't take it personally but I was curious to hear your reactions on her statement.
