You've got my number... I am extremely afraid to speak up publicly, I am a shrinking violet, I shy away from controversy and debate, and when it comes to my daughter I will let her suffer rather than ever speak up... NOT!
Seriously, could you please stop attacking me in this thread with your false assumptions? I posted the thread for constructive comments and support that anybody wanted to give, yet I find I am spending a lot of time defending myself against your false conclusions. I am no longer going to do that.
Sorry you feel it is an attack. It isn't really - I'm just expressing how I personally
feel about your situation with the particular teacher and how I personally
would have dealt with it. This man would not have had another moment with my child for any reason and I would do everything, including going to the top, to preclude him from ever having anything to do with my child or anyone else's child. That is just how I would have handled it and I personally
, just cannot understand how someone could leave a child (any child) in that environment, period. That's just how I feel personally
. Everyone has to deal with their own issues in whatever way they feel is comfortable and best for them which is what you obviously did so nobody can fault you for doing what you thought was best for you and your family.
You handled it the way you felt was necessary for you and your family - I'm just saying I would have handled it differently - much differently.
