Parenting school required, STAT:
A British Columbia father has sued his son’s Grade 2 Montessori teacher claiming that she “purposely and maliciously worked to damage the self-esteem” of his son over such things as failing to encourage the child’s spelling, not sending home a daily homework list and, in one case, displaying an unfinished poem in the school hallway.
Grade 2 = 8 years old or so. Here’s a clue, sir: kids have no self-esteem. Or they should not, at any rate. Incident after incident of falsely-entitled little bastards turning on each other, and their parents, in acts of horrific violence has proven that time and time again.
In a statement of claim first filed in court last fall, Mr. Finkelstein said that his son “suffered and will continue to suffer loss and damages” — including anguish, suffering, humiliation, embarrassment, anxiety, worry and loss of dignity –because Susan Rialp, the boy’s teacher at Selkirk Montessori School, did not make him do his homework or coax his reading and comprehension, and in one case, put his unfinished poem in a hallway for all to see. Ms. Rialp “falsely created and attempted to reinforce artificial differences between his son and his peers and falsely asserted the son exhibits behavioural difficulties,” according to the writ.
This is a guy with a personal grudge against the teacher, simple as that. Here’s another newsflash, buddy…it isn’t the TEACHER who makes the child do the homework, it is YOU. Way to set a “pass the buck” example for your kid there. But that’s ok, you’ve already told him he’s the specialiest boy in the world and he’ll never have to work for anything.
In the lawsuit, Mr. Finkelstein says the teacher also failed to protect the boy when he was bullied by another student, blaming his son instead.
I’m very sure this precious snowflake, so comprehensively enabled by Daddy, is absolutely blameless in the matter. No doubt he’ll grow up to be someone very, very important in civil service.
