I've had it with this parent who keeps calling me and the principal about her child not wanting to come to school. The child has been making herself sick in the morning and making up stories. Of course, the mother believes her and drives her to school where the child is clinging to her because she wants to stay home with mom. I am getting blamed for her lack of wanting to come to school because last year she had no issues. I met with the parent and she says that the child misses friends from last year. I get it, but that's no reason to be pulling this. The child does fine in class, has really not gotten into trouble, and is learning. I don't have a lot of support from my principal because he will take every opportunity to throw you under the bus. The parent is sneaky and goes behind my back after every time we talk and try to come up with a solution. I just learned that a big problem occured last year with another student placed in my class this year. Why wasn't this dealt with and the two separated? I can't stand being blamed for this child and the issues she is pulling at home. Can anyone give me some advice on how to deal with this situation? It's a typical problem parent who cries loud enough to get her way and I am just worn down.
