If you are new to ManvDadhood, I want to start by saying welcome, and thank you for stopping by. I hope you will continue to stop by in the month of August while I post a collection of definitive posts that will truly give you a clear picture of who I am, and what I’ve come through in the short time I’ve been blogging.
I’m doing this post from a Special Education Teacher perspective…
When at work, I know that I have these kids in a semi-controlled environment, with very specific programs in place. I have received the education and training that helps me to function and interact specifically with my students and the others who work with them. My students get off their bus at 7:15 in the morning, and I am responsible for them for the next 7 hours and 15 minutes then I put them on a bus to go home. I get them at what may be the best and most-focused part f their day. I understand that there are parents I will admire, and will not be able to fully comprehend their situation; single parents, and parents of children with special needs are two such parents.
I understand that I chose to do what I do as a profession, but you will always be a parent. I spoke with a parent tonight, and I don’t want to go into what we talked about, but it was a tough conversation to hear.
To ALL parents,
