What not to say at a parent teacher interview...

... when told (nicely) that your child has some concerning socialisation problems - basically, she's arrogant and nasty.

I guess we'll just have to pray about it.

Teachers in a state school will interpret that as 'I'm a religious nut and unwilling to do anything to help my daughter.'

Prayer is good, so pray. But if you need to tell the teachers that prayer is part of your plan to deal with your child's behaviour, please also ask/talk about additional strategies that you might use.

That is all.


  1. Advise any teacher that this is tried on to suggest that the appropriate prayers for this situation all require the application of Holy Water.

  2. Ha, ha, ha - o, sorry was that inappropriate? But that response is just GOLD!
