Finally…some perspective!

May 27, 2010

I just finished watching a re-broadcast of  a wonderful CBC Documentary entitled Hyper Parents and Coddled Kids. Given all of the “problems” I have been experiencing this semester and over the past few years, this documentary explained my current dilemma in a very succinct manner.  The children we  are teaching are simply by-products of parenting run a mock!  Everyone should watch this documentary and ask themselves whether or not they want to be part of the solution or continue to perpetuate the problem.

As a teacher, I feel the need for a major reform in the way we deal with these “entitled” students and as a parent I want to not get caught in the trap that most of today’s parent’s seem to be ensnared in.  Either way, I encourage everyone to watch this and form their own opinion.
