Get What You’re Paying For, For Your Daughter’s Sake!

, , , | Learning | October 7, 2022

I’m a preschool teacher, and I’m doing parent-teacher conferences. I am meeting with the parents of a student who attends sporadically. I show them her portfolio.

Me: “[Student] does really well when she attends regularly, but she struggles when she doesn’t attend for a while. I’m afraid that if she continues to struggle, she won’t be ready for kindergarten next year.”

Dad: “Wait. What? What do you mean, ‘when she attends regularly’? She’s coming every day.” *Turns to look at his wife* “She is attending every day, right?”

Mom doesn’t say anything, so I hand Dad his daughter’s attendance sheet.

Dad: “What the h***, [Mom]? Why are we paying hundreds of dollars a month if you’re not even going to bring her in?!”

[Student] was then dropped off by her dad for the rest of the year. I can happily say she caught up quickly and was ready for kindergarten at the end of the school year.
