Dear County School Parenting Class Teacher,
Yes, I know you have a name but I will not type it on here for fear that my kid has told you about my blog.
The past few weeks I have become to doubt your ability to teach this class. I know this because YOU were my teacher when I was in high school as well. I'm not sure what book you are teaching from or even what year the book was written but can I say, "You are wrong!"
I don't like my teenage daughter coming home with these half ass ideas she has learned in your class. When I go to tell her the RIGHT thing she chooses to NOT believe me because after all you are her teacher and her book says it's true.
Well, the book you are teaching from obviously needs to be rewritten with the truth filled in. Or, you need to stop telling the kids how 'your' life has been and making my daughter believe it's the word of God.
Seriously, my daughter came home to criticize me for taking a bath while pregnant. Excuse me? She learned it in class! Seriously??? When did you or your book get your Ob-Gyn degree? BUT me telling hormonal teen that wasn't true just led to her crying thinking I was calling her teacher a liar. First, I've had four kids and was never told to NOT take a bath. Perhaps you had a difficult pregnancy and weren't able to take a bath and shared this with your class. Please stop. You're going to confuse the kids. We all know they can only intake so much information and I'd like them to know the facts and not fiction. Second, I've taken a Certified Birth Doula Class and not once has been taking a bath been illegal to do while pregnant. How do you explain water birth then?
I just have a simple request. Please try to teach these kids the truth because what you tell them does sink in. I don't want to be put in the position to tell my child, "Well, your teacher is wrong." It doesn't make me look good to my child and it makes you look even worse to me.
PS. I took your class in highschool and it sucked. H is the reason why your class DIDN'T work!
Perhaps instead of teaching "Parenting" we should just give kids condoms every chance we get at school.
