I've been teaching high school for seven years, and I've dealt with a number of crazy parents. That said, every single crazy parent I've ever dealt with, the child was a boy. I've teach in a high SES district so I've had to meet with lawyers, advocates, and a host of other individuals brought in my overzealous parents. I've had parents that have emailed me on an almost daily basis, and parents that have and parents that have had ridiculous demands for redos, retakes, changing grades, accepting late work, and all kinds of other stuff. The only common thread is in EVERY SINGLE case, the child has been a boy. If you asked me before I started teaching, I would suspect it to be the opposite, envisioning parents being overprotective of their girls, but this couldn't be further from the truth. In fact, parents of girls have been much more likely to reach out to me with positive feedback, praise, and thanks. Parents of boys have been much more likely to drive me insane. Is this your experience as well, or the opposite? Why do you think it is?
