Who’s gonna watch the monkeys, if the teacher’s out?
So asks “Mom.”
Abuse?, 24 June 2008, Mom is Teaching
I say that parents be required to have certifications before attempting to parent thier children unsupervised during the long summer vacation. They should also be required to report back to the professional teachers during the vacation months to make sure that they are parenting their children correctly. It may also be prudent to require psychological profiles created of these parents. We have to do every thing we can to protect and ensure our children’s futures during this vulnerable time. Even if that includes making summer vacation illegal.
This is along the same lines as my question as to whether children’s 5th birthday cakes make parents stupid. Why are ‘we’ adequate for helpless infants and as summer caretakers, but not at other times?
