Once a teacher, always a teacher.
When you teach, you get more than a paycheck.
The most sacred of all of these powers is the ability to correct a child with a “look”.
Restaurants, movie theaters, ballgames, and church are just a few of the places where this gift comes in handy.
If I have to explain this concept (or the “look”), you have never been alone in a classroom of 25+ students (please feel free to replace the word “students” with something more descriptive).
Having the gift also means you have the innate ability to judge others on their parenting skills (I’m not proud of this and I’m not saying it is right… I’m just saying it happens).
I wanted to say (although you will be proud of me for biting my tongue…) “His behavior is completely acceptable or else he wouldn’t do it.”
And that is teaching and parenting in a sentence.
Most kids do exactly what is expected of them.
Discipline is the gift that keeps on giving.
