I found another stay at home mum and gave her $100 to look after my 2 children on the days I got called in to work as a casual teacher. If I wasn’t working, I wouldn’t pay, if I was, then I would and we would both make money. It was great. I also had my children in daycare for 2 days per week so the $100 thing was only for 3 days of the week if I got work.
My cousin did this also. She wasn’t happy about it in the beginning as she had a boyfriend of her own at the time. But when her older sister, my other cousin, passed away it was just expected that she marry her brother in law to keep the family and children together. I was raised in Australia and was outraged - I would never do that!! But different cultures have different expectations. Her husband is a lovely man - lucky for her.
Yeah right! As if it’s not because of her stupid remarks yesterday.
I second what you said
I'm sure the teacher would have felt horrible after realising her mistake. Yes the teacher said the wrong thing but she mistakingly thought the girl was pulling her hair out and was trying to discourage it (she still said the wrong thing but we all do occasionally). The principal should have informed the relief teacher of the child in her class with the illness. If the girl was my child (God forbid that illness be bestowed on one of my daughters) I would be upset, but I would also try and see it from that teachers point of view. I would insist that the principal look at procedures in informing relief teachers of things like this so it never happens again. It sounds like a horrible misunderstanding and I feel bad for all.
Uniforms are great. Easier mornings not having to deal with "what am I going to wear today!!!"
Yes they can be expensive but they look smart. If it was mufti every day the pressure to have the 'in' clothing would be horrible, not to mention the inappropriate clothing that would be worn. With a uniform everyone knows what's expected of them and there would be less stress in worrying what other people are wearing.
Please. No more mugs! Of course I would never complain about a gift from anyone, but the suggestion for a mug as a gift .... nope. 10 mugs a year is 9 too many.
