Violence in the Daycare Against the Teacher

 A four-year-old boy sent a teacher for stitches and with other injuries. She refused to go to ER with blood flowing down her face. She may have a concussion and a broken nose. She injured her knee and shoulder. She refuses to let workman's comp pay her bills. Why all this? She does not want to lose her job at 75! I think at this point, they will let her go. 

Maybe I don't want to work at this place where children are allowed to brutalize the teacher. What if it is a small child next time? Or, me? Maybe I don't want to work here. 

Her face is all cut up and bruised. There is a huge bandage on her forehead. The child ran past her and then immediately in front of her. Then, he shoved her. This place is licensed and has DHR to oversee that it is doing things correctly. Yet, this can happen. I only found out about this afternoon. 

Sluggy, you wonder about the drivers. Well, this kid with no self-control and no raising will be driving one day. 

He will get one day out of class and be allowed to come back and continue his reign of terror. Parents just dump the kid in trouble with a grandparent who probably cannot manage the child's violence and misbehaving. 

Thankfully, I am not a designated reporter anymore. Or, am I? I would lose a friend if I reported it. I need someone far away from Alabama to report this. 

I spent the night running a temp and shivering. Glands under my ears are throbbing. I slept from 1 am to 2 am, stayed awake until 7:30 am, sat at laptop until 9 am, and slept until 1:30 pm. Now, I am taking an antibiotic. MRI trip of 200 miles round trip was cancelled for maintenance of their equipment. I am glad I did not have to cancel again this week. 

My baby girl is 47 today!

For dinner we will have cheeseburgers without a bun, cheese, lettuce, and tomato. Maybe Tommy will have a bun.

  1. You know those parents will not believe for a second that they have raised a bad seed. It just infuriates me. People today - do not raise kids - the kids just go wild. I sure hope she is OK.
    Hope your daughter has a great birthday.
    Take care.

    1. Cheryl,
      Oh, this is caught on camera. Friend would not say which child, but the owner said she would look at the film. Bad rearing is the problem, not bad seed. She is beat up and can barely walk.
      Thank you. She will.
      Thanks

  2. I remember in elementary school, umteenth years ago, there was a boy in a 2nd grade class, he picked up his desk and threw it at the teacher. It did hit her, but I don't remember if he had injured her.

      That is ridiculous and scary. Were you there or heard about it? Were you a student in the classroom?

  3. Nobody seems to hold parents accountable for their children anymore. Parents just plop them in front of the tv for their first 5 years and then shove them into school full time so they don't have to deal with them and then everyone holds TEACHERS accountable for those ignorant little animals!

    No one puts the blame in its rightful place, which is on the parents. Parents should get jail time every time one of their brats gets out of control.

    1. Most of these parents walk in on the phone and just leave their kids without saying goodbye. When they pick them up from school, they are on their phones and don't say anything to their kids, just stay on the phone and leave with the kids. I feel sorry for the kids.

  4. I have taught elementary school for 38 years, the past 15 in early childhood. Last year was the hardest year ever. There were 4 out of 12 that threw items at me, had screaming fits, hit other kids, etc. My principal was a great support but the parents were of little help. They blamed the virus but these kids had been in daycare or preschool. These were educated, professionals. Now these kids are in the next grade raising hell. I have a very sweet class this year but I am planning on retiring at the end of the school year. I'll be 61.

    1. angie,
      I would not want my children exposed to situations like that. Those children will be a problem class during their time in school. I did student teach in a ninth grade class and was told they were a problem in kindergarten and since. I feel for new teachers coming into teaching. My children did not want me to hear they had misbehaved!

  5. Okay, I am going to get this back end of this. There are many children out there today that are not taught to behave, not taught to honor adults. Not taught to be respectful to one another and not hurt each other by words or by actions. We all know that! The day care is aware of the problems with children. They should not hire people not prepared to deal with these children. In truth, the owner offering child care should expel a troubled child at the first sign of trouble. They are in charge of all the children in their care as well as their employees.

    If parents do not care to teach their children proper behavior it is their failure, not the childs. I would hope that child protective services would step in and remove a child that is in a abusive home
    A small child is not to blame in these situations, it is a failure by the parents and by everyone that stands by and does not report the problem to have the child taken into care by people that would provided love and guidance.

    The last I will say is that foster parents should not be given a monetary incentive to be a foster parent. Medical care and clothing costs should be covered. Foster parents should be required to submit a verifiable expense report to be reimbursed, All medical and dental records should be reported to make sure the child is getting the needed care, If you can't afford to feed a child of any age you should not foster. For so many they see fostering a child as a way to make money. This should not be the case.!! These kids need love, attention and the security of a loving family.

    1. I agree 100%. The daycare should not have children who require someone to have a degree is self-defense to work there. Those children should be gone. The daycare owners are responsible for the worker's safetly.
      It is a failure at home. These parents may not have had any models, so they do not understand they can help children.
      I know people who fostered and who adopted to get money. The grandmother does all the childcare even though she works full time and has a home business. It is a living and has nothing to do with their loving the children. It is sad.

  6. Many children with disturbed thinking and acting will probably act up one way or another for their entire lives. I remember kids that were in school with me and the ones that acted up usually carried on all of the way into adulthood. Some of the ones I knew, aren't with us any more. They either got into drugs or had deadly DUI accidents. Some are incarcerated, and some are living really rough lives, but still living.
    I am 68 years old and there weren't so many kids that acted up back then as there are now. The future may be very scary.

    1. susie,
      It is sad. I know that many people who have problems and end up in the news have had really rough backgrounds, and I don't mean poverty. Most of the problems of children can be attributed directly to parenting or lack thereof.

  7. A student in my daughters class threw a math boom at a teacher one day. It’s unreal the disrespect students have for teachers these days. It wasn’t like that when I went to school.

      It is a shame the other students and teachers have to fear what a student will do. No, not like when I was in school.

  8. Not a popular opinion, BUT, Americans think nothing of subbing out the daily care of their kid from age of 6 weeks old, and then wonder why we have behavior issues. I firmly believe that what kids need is to build secure, stable relationships with their parent/guardian, and NOT be shuttled to daycare in a church basement at 7 a.m., picked up at 6 p.m., only to wake up the next morning to do it all over again. I understand that the counter argument is "Well, we NEED two incomes to survive." (I'm not sure I believe this, but I'm not privy to their budgets, so what do I know?) But this sort of behavior, IMO, is one of the consequences. The irony is that there is along with this almost universal belief that having a SAHP (stay at home parent) is financially unattainable in this country, we have a severe lack of quality early childhood care. And, personally, I think the answer is better family leave, and resources to enable parents to stay with their children.
    As to the mention of foster care/payment: It always boggled my mind that the state could take kids from parents for, basically, having a lack of resources to provide for them, and send them to foster parents who are given resources from the state to provide for them.

    1. Meg,
      I won't argue with you. I gave up a lot to stay home and rear my children. I knew a mother with a son who lived with her new husband and her son in a two-bedroom apt with a bathroom and a kitchen/dining room/ den. So, basically, they had three rooms with a TV in each bedroom and the living area. They each had a vehicle even though they worked at the same factory. I was appalled! She had rotten teeth and was trying to get a GED and worked fulltime. Her situation was not tenable at all.

      In a sociology class I spoke up and said a family could live on one income most of the time. The women yelled me down. The professor stopped them and asked me to continue explaining. I posited that both parents in most family had a car, and at least one teen. TVs were in every bedroom, living room, and the kitchen. I thought cutting back on these pricey purchase would enable a family to have one parent at home. The teacher did agree. Of course, there is always the single mother and women who do not want to stay home. And, I am not assuming the mother should be the one to stay home.
      There is no logic to the idea of paying someone to care for children because the parents have a lack of resources. I could write a blog post on this issue every day.

      I rarely disagree with anything you say.

    2. I lived for a good many years in the small apartment, one vehicle, no eating out, no subscription television channels, cloth diapers, no frivolous shopping at all lifestyle to stay home. Frankly, I would not have married a man who wouldn't have agreed that one of us needed to stay home, and I wouldn't have had children if we couldn't have managed on one income after they came. And for what it's worth, there were many, MANY times I found myself thinking, and sometimes, even saying, (even after we could breathe quite easily financially) GOOD GOD, WORK HAS TO BE EASIER THAN THIS!!!!

    3. Meg,
      I was laughing and wondering if you read my mind. Being a mother is very hard! Unfortunately, the man I chose was not my best decision.
