My Daughter had told me about the Shameful Actions of these children towards Mrs.Klein,before now I hadn't seen it for myself.
As I watched this video,I wasn't stunned, shocked and horrified....I see this kind of behavior all the time,
For you see Alumar, I drive "Challenged" young Ladies and Gentlemen" to and from school,Sometimes the "Challenge" is Behavioral problems, So I am very familiar with Mrs. Kleins world.
So From an "Insiders" point of view as it were, I had to ask myself a few question's
1) had Mrs. Klein done or said somthing to bring this attack on herself??
As sometimes Driver's/Aides create their own grief by the way that they treat the children, If i've seen this once, I've seen it a hundred times!
This however DOESN'T seem to be the case with Mrs. Klein!!!
As Is clearly shown in the fact that Mrs. Klein wasn't ranting and raving like a maniac over the shameful action's of these children.
She refused to Place charges against these children!
2)Why is it that people have forgotten that Children will behave DIFFERENTLY when not under the watchful eye of their parents??
Pier pressure is a powerful thing,Everybody wants to be excepted,Children are no different.
3)Why is it that people will AUTOMATICALLY Blame the parent's??
Now i know that sometimes this is the case!!
I've been doing what i do for 15 years, at first i used to wonder why the child was behaving as they did.
BUT once i met the parent's it wasn't hard to understand why!
4) Altho I DO understand the outrage of people that had seen this video,I also have to wonder how in the name of common sense,they can send death threat's and the like to the parent's of this child???
In MHO there NOT behaving any better then those children!!!
How can we expect our children to behave any better when that's the example were giving them to follow??
I also watched the video of the "Father's apology" and I applaud him!!
BUT I do think that he made a mistep,His son doesn't need to go to a therapist...He needs to fully understand the repercussions of his action's, and there's no better teacher then to have to deal with his action's himself!! IE,He should have been made to make a "Face to Face" Apology to Mrs.Klein himself!!!!
As for punishment, If I had lost all the stuffin out of my comforter and behaved in this manner, there is NO DOUBT what would have happened to me!
The Law requires that I recieved an education,BUT it doesn't requier that I recieve transportation!!!
A)I would have been kicked off of the bus..peroid!
B)I would have been suspended from school,,if not expelled!!
C) I would have had a hard time sittin down to eat my dinner,this doesn't requier explanantion...
D)I would have been made to whole heartly apologise to Mr's Klein face to face.
E)Grounding?? Time OUT?? nope...I would only have hoped for a grounding or time out!!
F) Chores??? It would have been preferable to working in a sweat shop then to have to do the load of chores that would have been added to my already long list of chores!!
G) Free Time?? Fun activities??? NOT ON A BET!!!!
