"cgbarn"...you live in a dream world where everyone is created equal, has equal opportunities, enemies can be reasoned with, all chocolate has whipped cream and a cherries on top, all students are inherently good kids that are misunderstood, all teachers are rogues snorting flames and spewing green slime.

If a teacher has to slap a kid to make them behave, then the parents have failed in someway. And, to blame the teacher is a cowards way out when a parent just can't possible understand that they have failed to discipline and control their own kids. Talking softly and trying to reason with a kid does no good if they've had their way all their life...they already feel entitled and greatly resent anyone trying to discipline them.

I really feel sorry for teachers that have to deal with folk like you. Anyone can be pushed to their limit...that's not being out of control that's human nature.

That was my dream to become a teacher, but talking to a few teachers and hearing about the problems they had to face without much support from parents and administration, I gave up my dreams. Their problems were something I didn't want to deal with. I discovered that I could make more money, have much much less difficulties at work and work less hours. And, I also discovered that it wouldn't make any difference how many years that a teacher serves or how good a teacher they are, just one tiny tiny slip up and you are fired and blackballed from the teacher profession. Teaching those brats in a public school is just punishment without any retribution. You don't hear stories of discipline problems in private schools. At the first sign of a problem the kids are told to find another school cause there's always a waiting line for students to get in and a discipline problem is something they won't tolerate...public schools should operate on the same premise.

This country is going to really really suffer in the future because Americans have forgotten how to parent, how to inspire their children.
