Your children have to learn how to deal with their own problems. Do not call me ten times a day to try to fix things that your children [redacted] up. It is not my duty cure stupidity, irresponsibility or idiocy, and the more that you call and imply that I am not doing my job (to help to make sure that your kid succeeds), the more I hate you.
You seem to think that it is my job to be a servant and not a resource. You assume that I am solely responsible for your child and your child alone.
I know it's hard to handle, but your child is now a legal adult (for the most part). You've got to let go.
I am terrific at my job. I am good at reading students. I'm fairly good at predicting which students will succeed and which will fail, and here's something to think about: even if your children fail, it is their failure and their responsibility to fix things. Not yours. Back off.
When I taught, you NEVER would have contacted me because you thought that I had some kind of unbelievable power over your child's future. HA.
But now? Any chance you get.
I have the utmost respect for kindergarten teachers and high school counselors because they take care of children. I do not take care of children. I help adults try to figure out how to use resources to get ahead.
So if you call me and demand information and I tell you that I don't have to give it to you, you accept that information, say thank you, wish me a good day, and hang up and go and talk to your child.
Leave me alone.
