Back 2 School Drama

Kristy - posted on 09/02/2009 ( 2 moms have responded )




Ever went to Back- to School - Night and have it turned into a Jerry Springer Show? Not fun!!! Who benefits form that? Not the kid that’s for sure. Now I just want to hold him, cry and throw-up. Someone help me understand so I can help him, and tell me it ends somewhere, somehow. Please

Had a third party family member show up and start cussing, accusing and assaulting to the point that everyone was escorted out of the school??

Is there a program that helps with that? This person actually, physical grabbed the child and engaged in a tug-a -war. Pulling him forcefully away.

uh, yeah, that's totally an immature way to handle a situation! why can't people keep kids out of things that kids don't need to know about! if there are adult arguments, keep the kids out of it! and if decisions affect the child, would it kill people to ask the kid (quiety, calmly, in a non persuasive or threatening manner) what they would prefer? holy cow. some people.

I went with my ex to his son's grade 6 graduation. his mom didn't like the way the daughter was dressed (the mother had dressed her in a perfectly appropriate jean dress...she was 5)...the grandma took it upon herself to take the girl to the bathroom and put a dress on that she had the nerve to bring with her to the event. WHO ARE THESE PEOPLE! ugh. poor kids. like they don't have enough trouble coping with split up parents.

The child is my 13 year old step son; the 3rd person is his maternal Grandma who has shared legal custody with his father.

It was during his father’s court parenting time and they share all educational/extra-curricular decision making.

We had the boy in group n individual counseling programs with the school social worker n psychologist. But Grandma pulled the plug. Wants Dad to pay for private counseling of her choosing. She doesn’t want the school involved, or anything on the boy’s record.
