Why do I get the feeling there's some serious projection going on here?

/if I'd chosen teaching as a career, I know I'd be suicidal about now

Some parents may react badly otherwise please stand down so that the kids have a chance at being taught by somebody with a lick of sense.

FeatheredSun: Teacher's assignment had nothing to do with suicide...TFA clearly says the assignment was to imagine they had a terminal illness. So really, this was a fine contemplation of life and transience, and, in a world with REAL KIDS DYING OF CANCER and such, should actually be applauded as creative education.

But, of course, kid didn't explain to Mom, Mom gets freaked, mistakenly tries to assuage her fundamental fear of mortality with blame, and some retardo farking reporter sees a paycheck through sensational headline writing.

And finally, subtard and half of you farking morons who don't RTFA before spewing idiocy of your own...

Goddamn pathetic...


This!
If my kid has handed me a note like this and then takes themselves off to bed with no explanation as to context, you can bet your ass I'd march upstairs and ask them WTF. After the explanation I'd likely laugh and give them a half hearted smack upside the head and say "Idiot, scared the hell out me!". Then we could all go to sleep, better informed and at peace with the world ffs.

So they weren't asked to write suicide notes? Oh, just to write a goodbye letter as if they had a non-specific terminal illness? The mother of the student is the one who introduced suicide into the equation? She thinks 14 year olds shouldn't be dealing with death at all?

I'm beginning to see the real problem here....

I kept journals (composition books) forever when I was a kid; loved writing down lyrics to some of my favorite songs... The parents find the notebook, freak out after reading my Written.Down.Lyrics. to Metallica's Dyer's Eve... ended up seeing a shrink for a bit after that. What really gets me is that the written down lyrics for Dyre's Eve was written one page AFTER Corpse's "Tomb of the Mutilated"...

Really Guys? Really?! Let's not worry about our 11 year old daughter writting about cutting a woman from her neck down to her anus... lets focus on the next page that starts off with "dear mother dear father", 'cause that one make more sense to us... I mean, Lookit! It mentions US!!!'

/They're teabaggers, now.

This sounds like something Jeremy Clarkson would do for a laugh.

My daughters middle school lost two students to suicide this year. Sick tag would have been appropriate.
