As a parent, you always strive to ensure your child is kind, independent and treats others with compassion. Of course, it’s not easy all the time; kids will be kids.
Obviously, it’s important to be able to admonish our children when he or she does something unacceptable, but we must also be there to stand up and support our kids when needed.

I’m an Emergency Room nurse and we’re not allowed to have our phones on us; they’re to be kept in our lockers. A call comes into hospital reception on a private line for me.
Teacher: “This is [Teacher] from [School]. There’s been an incident involving [Daughter]. We need you to come in.”

Teacher: “Mrs. [My Name], how kind of you to FINALLY join us!”
