What Would You Do As A Parent?

So today I am reading my Facebook posts and I come across one from Cafemom about a teacher in California that got suspended from his job because a student called 911 to the classroom.  You can read the full article here.  Now to just give you a gist of what happened.  This teacher was trying to get the attention of his class so he rattled a desk and one student was disturbed by his behavior so she left class and called 911 reporting the teacher saying that he was angry and possibly throwing objects.  When the police arrived the rest of the class was quite while the teacher was in the middle of the lesson.  However the school placed him on administrative leave with pay pending an investigation.  He has never had any complaints filed before nor did any of the other students felt the teacher was out of line.

Now I have long realized that I didn’t grow up in the some society as my younger siblings and as a parent I know that when my kids are in school it will be even more different.  What would you do as a parent if you received a phone call from your child’s school saying that they are responsible for calling 911 into the school for this same issue?  What the teacher wrong?  Was the student wrong?  What should the parents of this child do?  Its so much you can say about this story and just makes you think what we are doing and how it affects our children and they things they do in life.

I Forgot I Had a Blog

It has been so hectic recently I just haven’t had to chance to do much of anything. I don’t bake, make new dishes, write in my blog or anything else hobby wise. I do however spend loads of time with both my kids and lots sitting around since I have to take it easy for the next couple of months. We’re growing and expanding and that takes sacrifice. I am a year older and wiser but other than that not much I can really say. Oh yeah the Stephens Family is expecting our second son sometime around mid June if he is on time and not early or late. Its gonna be rough summer. Steve and Trey have birthdays in May and Kennedi in June. We are gonna be doing lots to get ready for baby and to keep the current kiddos happy. Hopefully I get time to check in here often while we prepare for our new arrival.

Peace and many blessings,
