Dear Anonymous Poster who left this gem on a post I wrote THREE YEARS AGO
WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!I don't believe it. I guess all of you anti-teacher / homework haters should just try walking in our shoes. No, we can not do it all by ourselves. Yes, the government has failed us all in how and what the students need to learn and why. Don't take it out on us. We know homework should only take 10 minutes. Is sounds more like LawMomy's son is just anal about his work. What LawMommy should have said was do your best and that is all you can do. Next time mommy will be home early enough to help you do it in 10 minutes!
I am impressed that you have managed to imply that my child is anal-retentive, that I am an absent parent, and that I am a "teacher hater" in just a few sentences.
I am shocked how much traffic this one post receives, I truly am. I had no idea that complaining about First Grade Homework was so controversial.
But if the anonymous poster had spent ANY TIME reading ANY OTHER POST on my blog, they would know that I am MARRIED to a TEACHER, for Pete's sake. I am not a teacher hater. I am not an absent mom (and in fact, I was not an absent mom on the night this event happened, three years ago. I was trying to let my son play outside in the fresh hour for 45 minutes. I GUESS THAT MAKES ME A HORRIBLE PERSON.)
So, thanks Anonymous, for judging my family on the basis of one short post that was born out of frustration.
At any rate, I am turning off Anonymous commenting. If I have any regular readers who are distressed about that, feel free to email me. My email is on the sidebar.
