Meowmies and Kitties: Sit down for this!

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
In my 4th grade class, I turned my back for 1 minute! ShaTyria pulled up her shirt and showed her breast to Derrick, who pulled down his pants and showed her his little wiener. This is the lowest group in the 4th grade. I usuallt keep a constant eye on them, but I had turned my back to do something. BOOM!

He got 7 days OSS (it was his 20th office referral). She got 4 days OSS.

I just feel like crying!

Oh my word! How crazy! 4th graders?!

Oh boy! That's crazy. Sounds like you had a rough day at school. I'm so sorry. Teaching kids, especially at that age, is such a challenge. I've heard so many stories from friends of mine who do it. Hang in there!!

oh my Bobbie!! Don't even get me started on this one!!!! That makes me so blasted mad. Like 60 hrs of MTV or VH-1 per week and all the crapola every single place you look that glorifies this in-your-face-sex-show that kids are emulating. I'm sorry you have to deal with this and have to be a MOM instead of a teacher.

sex at school?
Come on atleast make it private.
I agree i get sick of watching tv because its too sex related.
You wonder why little kids are doing this at school because they watch too much crap.

Even cartoons its all about love and sex its appaling.

Aww this is sad! Hugs for you Bobbie!

Were they like, playing doctor or something?? Surely 9 year olds aren't thinking sex when they do that crap.... At least I would hope not.... When I was 9 I still thought boys had cooties and smelled bad. I knew a few girls who didn't, but they at least kept their clothes on.
I could SOOO not handle being a teacher...I'd probably strangle some parents for not teaching their kids to have more sense that that.

When I was in 7th grade I knew of a few girls who were "active". They mostly either dropped out or were pregnant by high school. Their parents never bothered to teach them about that sort of thing, and look how the kids turned out....

Maybe it's time the schools mailed off letters asking parents to have 'THE' talk with there kids , no matter the age. The earlier the better and easier it is later on as he/she matures and gets sexually active. I wish i would have listened to the Bird's and the Bee's talk. I just yelled like crazy at my mom and sisters to leave me alone, but I wish they could have kept buggn me for that talk.

I'm not surprised. Blame it on all the things kids are exposed today.
Children just need to learn there's a proper time for everything from both parents and teachers NOT from TV, the internet, movies...Good example and proper guidance are what is lacking today.
post #13 of 24
Oh my word.....how awful...I hate to think of what they are exposed too....*hugs* I'm so sorry that had to happen in your classroom.... I also feel bad for the other kids...

You're a great teacher. Whatever happens is none of your fault. Not at all.

For real....
Parents need to be parents, not leave the TV and the 'Net to baby sit their kids, quit being so d@mn repressed, and quit blaming Howard Stern amd Marilyn Manson for their own bad parenting!
I saw every bit as much sex and such as every other kid during the '80's and 90's but my mom was up front about it all. Plus I saw how yucky birth was (a couple litters of kittens).
The result: a child who was NOT in a hurry to try it out, but grew up well adjusted.

It must be tough to be a teacher these days. You guys have my respect!!

So sorry to hear that! I am slowly realising how bad the media is when it comes to representing sex. Even so I agree that its a parent's job to educate their children about sex. I was at a camp once and we were looking after 11-12 year old kids....we went to check up on them in the tent and they were playing strip poker! It really, really makes me sad because children that age really dont understand that sex is more than just a physical act and im sure that they do not know about things like hiv/aids and pregnancy! I live in South Africa where AIDS is a big problem, and the last thing that we need is young children being exposed to glamourised sex in the media all time.

That's really bothersome, and sadly representative of many young people today. I have so much admiration for every teacher just like you, Bobbie. You are faced with the responsibility of teaching not only educational material but also moral standards and appropriate behavior. Things that are commonplace now just didn't happen when I was in school, they just didn't. We were taught better than this at home, most had morals and values and this just wasn't acceptable.

All of you are so kind. I was kinda worried that teachers would be blamed.

I just about blew away!
post #18 of 24
Oh Bobbie, that isnt your fault at all!! It's disgraceful and their parents should be knocked over the head! Ari's right, kids are so much different these days than when we were younger... I cant believe the things they say and do sometimes... My father's girlfriends 2 youngest daugthers are 11 and 13 and they say the most unbelievable things sometimes... I seriously wonder where they learn this stuff from because as someone else said, I can't remember at the moment... When I was 13 I still thought that boys had cooties... I still think they have cooties and I'm 23!! As a matter of fact, Adrian and I got into an argument a few weeks ago about the fact that he has cooties and he was saying that he got them from me because the rule is that 'girls give boys cooties'... After about 20 mins of yelling at each other about it we both burst into laughter at how silly we sounded but the truth is it's really not a joke because kids nowadays have no idea what kind of trouble they are getting themselves into... Their parents dont teach them anything and then they have the nerve to blame everyone else when their kid comes home pregnant or gets an STD... I'm sorry but if your children are doing something wrong it's your fault because you didnt teach them the proper way to act... I was 18 when I had my first 'experience' and you know what I'm proud of it! and I was with that person for 4 years so, it makes me sick to see little kids doing things that I wouldnt have dreamt of doing at their age... Ugh, this topic makes me sick and I could rant and rave about it forever because it disgusts me so much... :Excuse me...:

It's hearing things like this that make me sad for the state of youth today. I remember in fourth grade, all I thought about was reading a lot. I played baseball, but that was mostly because all my guy friends did too. I don't know if my brain's just wired differently than everyone elses or what. My parents never had "the talk" with me, and (in my mind) it was never necessary, because having sex in high school (let alone grade school) never even entered my mind as something to do. I went to a public school, and in 8th grade health class we had sex-ed which was contraceptive based rather than abstinance based. Oh yeah - scare tactics too. Nothin' like an 8 foot tall picture of the effects of certain STDs to scare the bujezus out of a kid. Slide shows rock.

Anyhow - kudos for you for taking on the job of a teacher. I hope to be one some day soon too, but in college, rather than grade school. Does your school have the Channel One news program? I think it's a horrible idea to pipe that drivel into schools - it's more commercials and rock music than it is actual news. Not that rock music is bad, [edited due to rant].

And, Malakai, not all boys have cooties, I, for one, have had my shots.

next to nursing I think being a teacher must be the hardest job and having to handle things like children that know to much even worse. It is so sad that children cant be children any more if its not the media or books that tell to much its some of the children at school telling them things. It scares me as I have three children all under 17 and I dont want them to grow up to fast.

Sometimes behavior like that is also related to sexual abuse outside of school...my DH works with foster kids, many of whom have been abused by family or friends. Very sad.
