What is your child’s teacher really trying to say…

A colleague brought this great list to me today and I just couldn’t keep it to myself, quick no go get your child’s last report card and hopefully none of these things are on there, but…

If the comment says…

  • Shows difficulty in distinguishing between imaginary and factual material…means Your child is a liar.
  • Has difficulty with motor control and coordination…means Your child is a klutz
  • Accomplishes task when interest in constantly prodded…means Your child needs nagging
  • Results to physical means of winning his or her point or attracting attention…Your child fights
  • Needs guidance in development of good hygiene habits…Your child smells bad
  • Needs help in learning to respect the property rights on others…Your child steals
  • Needs guidance in learning to express self respectfully…Your child is a smartass
  • Requires ongoing supervision in order to work well…Your child is lazy
  • Has qualities of leadership but needs to use them more constructively…Your child is a bully

    None of those on the report cards, but I did get a phone call from M’s teacher today “Just to say how delightful she is, and how glad I am to have her in my class!”How sweet was that?
