I am almost ashamed to admit it, but I figure I share all my issues. I share issues like I'm sitting on a nice fluffy couch paying someone to listen to my issues. But, since I don't want to pay anyone to listen to my junk I just make you read about it. Except, you come here by choice so maybe I should be concerned for you.
Yeah, that's it. I'm concerned for you.
Do you see what I'm doing here? I'm stalling. Stalling so I don't have to tell you my bad habit.
But, I will. Here it goes.
I frequently correct other kids in public.
Aye, aye, aye...I said it!
I only taught for seven years. I've been out of teaching for 5 years. Yet, I still find myself correcting kids whether I know them or not. I am THAT annoying person.
I promise I don't think I am a super parent. My kids can act like a bunch of hooligans, and Chubby Cheekers keeps me on my toes daily. If I ever thought I was a good parent, Chubby Cheekers was put on this Earth to challenge that thought. The problem is if I see one kid doing something that hurts or invades another kid's personal space, I cannot keep my mouth shut. I physically start twitching just watching it.
Tell me I'm not alone here. Anyone? Anyone? Okay, so I'm alone. I'm seeking help. I can completely understand if you want your children to run and hide from me. It could be the only way to intervene. Maybe I just need to realize I am not a teacher anymore. I don't need to operate under the 'It Takes a Village To Raise a Child' motto.
