tiny terror

A Chapter by Lyn Anderson
"

this may offend some people, sorry, but the accommodations made for kids with violent behaviours just because they are smart and have "special needs" hurt all the kids who have to deal with them.

"
Cute as a button
and smart as a whip,
and when he has your
full attention,
he'll grab the keyboard,
and smash your kid's face.

He spits at the teacher,
he yells and he screams,
he holds the kids hostage,
at least that's how it seems.

I asked his mother,
she says, "what can I do?"
last week I caught him
with a cat in the oven,
I told him that it isn't very nice,
I even made sure by telling him twice.


Everyone has a right to an education,
that's what the principal said.
Is that what they are going to say
when my kid is dead?

I have always loved the intensity and passion in this song, mixed with the unfortunate and powerful message make for quite the combination.... I have often wondered the same thing.... parents wonder how their kids grow up the way they do, but stand by while they get more twisted and violent... one of my biggest pet peeves... be a parent for fks sake!!! people wanna tell you not to hit your child, I am sorry, if I had one I would beat their a*s if they did some of the things I see kids get away with... they need discipline and guidance... sorry, you have hit a nerve with this write ma'am, can you tell?.. lol
anyways, before I go off on another rant, let me say awesome piece... and I agree!! (if you couldn't tell)

This wouldn't happen in most schools anymore but it does in some where good intentions are misplaced or administrators haven't got the balls to stand up to parents that want their children integrated into a regular classroom setting. I agree with accommodations but the behaviours need to be evaluated with the school administrators, district social workers and board psychometrist, along with the parents. I whole heartedly agree that safety of the other kids in the class/school should be top priority. Also feel for the child with issues but too many parents fail to see their children the way others see them so kids they don't get the help they need until it's often too late. Such a touchy subject but I blame the adults for not managing the situation they way it should be managed.

I know this one too well, being PC these days hinders us in some ways....what of the kids who follow the rules and don't put your life at risk, I'm not sure what the answer is but letting them get away with these infractions and not any consequences whatsoever, is a serious accident waiting to happen.

Sounds like he's in the wrong place...probably needs to be reevaluated.
Modern times call for modern troubles. I went to an incredibly backwards school for some years and got myself into trouble for asking one too many questions. Some of my mates in trouble too. Some of them with behaviour not disimilar to what has been expressed here. Mostly a concequence of lack or non existent love at home or worse. School was the play ground bu also salvation from the nightmares of life. My constant questioning forced the teachers to recommend that I would be better suited to a more freer style of education. Ironically enough the change to a non traditional education brought about peace. I do wonder what became of the torubled kids.

A situation in need of help here.

Thankyou

In my days it was comply or leave. That did not help much. I kept leaving . Lol
When I was in school a kid like this would have been out in about 5 seconds.

I agree with your sentiments here KL, we have seen that ourselves in our kids' school classes. In the rush to be all inclusive, the rights of the majority get ignored, and all suffer.
Certainly accommodations have to be made, adjustments, and allowances, but there needs to be common sense.
We dealt with this in high school, and were told the kid that threatened to kill our son, and meant it, was to be tolerated as he came from a broken home.
I told the principal that was bullshit, and either the kid goes, or we pulled our honor student out of his school, which would have killed the football team.
BTW the football team tuned in the punk, problem was solved, he transferred.
