Revisiting school parents who lack any sense of responsibility

My few readers know that I have little tolerance for parents of school children who think their little darlings can get away with murder on the basis of how obnoxious they can be. It's people like that who give parents a bad name. So, just when I think I have seen it all when it comes to certain school parents who will make every excuse so their kids don't actually have to do schoolwork or be inconvenienced by their education, along comes this story of a Momzilla who, had it been me, I would have called the cops and have her charged for assault. The sad part is that mom's kid could have possibly done well in school in spite of the ADHD were it not for her. Anyhow, just go over and read it at Scheiss Weekly.

Sadly, just about every school has one or more "Momzillas" nearly every year.

Indeed. I do wonder if at times such parents have something to do with teachers who leave teaching within the five year mark. I know for me, the parents, or their "politics" (or shall we label it "negative behaviors"?), were a reason I decided to move on to higher education on the path that led me to librarianship. Of course, the problem also is that more often than not the administrators are not helpful or supportive.
