If a teacher was bullying your child, but the teacher was incredible and really also opened up opportunities for your child - what would you do? smile

How can a teacher who bullies your child also be incredible?

CaptainCrunch Sun 20-Mar-16 20:02:29

The two aren't compatible, your question doesn't make any sense.

Depends if it is actually bullying or trying to motivate the child in a way the child doesn't like. And also who had told me it was bullying

But first port of call is always a calm chat with the teacher to find out what is really happening

If you'd witnessed it (based on a tv show maybe!)

Sounds like "Whiplash".

So I think you're saying that the teacher is horrid to your child but people are telling you that the teacher is marvellous at the subject?

Your child will not learn if being bullied.

Ok, got the gyst now. Its a TV programme or film for a reason. Its not REAL!

Bickwood Sun 20-Mar-16 20:22:05

Except it's reality TV wink

Of course it is grin Is there a need to tell you "reality" tv isn't real?

A teacher who bullies a child would never give them opportunities.
I don't how the word incredible would even come into it

Bickwood Sun 20-Mar-16 21:04:24

Yeah but the reality here is real, obviously I appreciate some things are staged. Not sure what the ffs is for though.

God it's not dance mums is it? hmm

Bickwood Sun 20-Mar-16 21:18:01

But of course! grin

Iliveinalighthousewiththeghost Sun 20-Mar-16 21:18:03

--I love dance mums--grin

Oops strike out fail. Sod it. Why should I be ashamed of my love for DM's. grin.

Bickwood Sun 20-Mar-16 21:21:34

Embrace the DMs love smile

I probably take it waaaay too seriously!

Really depends what you mean , bullying tends to be an overused phrase so unless the actual instance is clear it is difficult to give a view

sizeofalentil Sun 20-Mar-16 21:43:09

Like Severus Snape?

It's hypothetical but it's TV but it's real?

It's a teacher but it's dance?
