Oh, finally, a teacher who DOESN'T want to touch kids, and people are biatching?

The grandparent is lucky they didn't call Child Protective Services. Kids returning to school in the same dirty clothes and being unclean is a sign of neglect. I would think a private note is much better and more effective than calling the kid out in class or calling the hotline.

Bathe your kids people so I don't have to come out because someone called the hotline and reported you.

Yeah.  The only thing I can think is that she was rude to the parent or something.  My 3-year old son's school would call the parent to come pick the kid up (or at least bring clean clothes).  I've known people who are too lazy to wash clothes and their kids are either in new clothes or multi-day clothes.  And wearing the same clothes for more than one day isn't an option for a 3-year old kid.  They trash what they are wearing.

The teacher is doing the kids a favor. There is no surer way to have your child ostracized and humiliated at school than to have them called stinky by their fellow classmates.

/had a classmate in elementary school that smelled. I feel bad for him now, I doubt it was his fault, just poor parenting.

He's the smelly kid in class! I let him become the smelly kid in class! What the hell's the matter with me?

She says it made the girl ask if her teacher thinks she stinks.

Can 3 year-olds read? I call BS.

I live next to a grade school and yes, with the amount of running around these kids do, some of these kids need a pressure washer.

If you are stinky... probably due to neglect... I doubt you would have had caring people teach you to read early.

Note was handwritten so probably cursive, and I'm guessing it didnt use all 3 letter words that rhyme.

Seems to me someone got a bug up their ass and wanted to make a public spectacle.

The article I read last night had a picture of the note. It was not cursive. It was very neatly printed and had a place for both parent and child to sign and included such sensitive language as "I don't even want to touch them. Enough said."

Also, it's not very private when you send it home with literally every child.
 
2013-11-23 10:21:51 AM
In elementary school there was a girl everyone ragged on because she stank. She never talked or did schoolwork, just slept and stank it made her a pretty ripe target for bullying.

Years later i saw where her and her clan lived, basically a hole in the holler filled with school busses and a trailer. She has a kid now and still lives in that hole in the holler. Her kid probably stinks as well.

Maybe if someone had sent cps over there years ago it would have broke that cycle of stank, or maybe not.

In that case that was certainly a career limiting move... I figured it was a "Here's what I'm seeing, and rather than single anyone out I sent it to the whole class" kind of public service announcement.  To make the kids aware is just moronic.

This kid was never sent home from school and had a lot of friends:

In this article, you'll also see that some parents were apparently more pissed off about a perceived disrespectfulness toward them, and a couple were angry enough to threaten physical violence. So it's not about the kids, but all about their own bad selves.

I feel sorry for those children.

Cut her a break -- the lady spends her day waist deep in bad breath and BO trying to educate your stupid kids.  As a Dad, I can sympathize.

""3- and 4-year-old children 'also give off unpleasant smells.' "


She's a preschool teacher. This is like becoming a fireman, and complaining about the heat.
 
2013-11-23 10:36:05 AM
Way back, there was a kid in one of my classes that farking reeked so bad it was hard to pay attention to what the teacher was doing. I guess her excuse was that she was in a wheelchair and massively overweight for middle school and thus hard to wash, but holy hell, all the empathy in the world doesn't block a smell like that. Good on this teacher for telling that smelly little animal to take a farking bath.
 
2013-11-23 10:40:05 AM
It looks like the school has a uniform policy, but I can't tell if it applies to pre-K.  If so, its quite possible some of them only bought one uniform.

I guess she was trying to make it less personal by sending it as a class note before calling anyone out, but she should have known better than to include the line about not wanting to touch them.

Is this 1980? Who the hell hand prints an official message on a piece of torn out notebook paper? Does teacher not know how to computer?

And these days, parents probably intentionally send their kids to school as unappealing as possible, as a self defense mechanism against the horny teachers.

What kind of a dipshiat would make a little kid sign a note saying that s/he was responsible for getting to school without smelling? And the way it's worded......"enough said" Yes, your coontiness--whatever you say. A lot of teachers just aren't very bright. Elementary school teachers are the worst. And here's Exhibit A.

This is a woman woman who became a teacher to save all the kids, because she can do it better than everyone else. She has plaques and knick-knacks all over her desk that say things like, "Teachers are angels in disguise" and "teaching is the profession that teaches the other professions" and "to everyone else you're just a teacher, but to your students you're a HERO." She believes this. She's a savior. But only if they do it HER WAY.

/yes, I have issues with some teachers.
//But I bet I'm right.

The teacher could have made it look more official by typing it, and maybe she could have used somewhat gentler language, but she's spot on in saying it's a health and safety concern. These bad parents are just mad that they're getting called out for being bad parents.

Sad thing is, neglect is really hard to prove in a court of law.  Something really bad usually has to happen

In sending a note home with all of them none of them were singled out. I've spent quite a bit of time in the classroom with the younger kids and sometimes they are a bit dirty, moreso in the poorer neighborhoods.

She also didn't need to mention that she didn't want to touch the kids. That's the part that really crosses the line.

I remember when I was in kindergarten, there was a kid who smelled pretty bad. He wasn't in my class, but I encountered him frequently outside at recess or something. He was exceptionally fat for a kid that young at that point in time. All he ever did was stand in one spot staring off into space, so he was easy to avoid for the most part. It's hard to believe a kid could reek so bad I'd have to hold my breath if I got within 6 feet of him OUTDOORS.

When I got older I realized it was the poor kid's parents' fault. They destroyed any chance he had at making a single friend or just being regarded by his peers as normal.

We need to bring back fire buckets. Back in the day a stinky child got a bath one way or another.

I also want dunce caps back. Nothing motivates like shame.

cryinoutloud: What kind of a dipshiat would make a little kid sign a note saying that s/he was responsible for getting to school without smelling?


The kid isn't supposed to sign the note, the parent writes the kid's name there.

Because not all parents/guardians have the same last name as their kids, or there might be more than one kid with the same last name in the class.
 
2013-11-23 11:14:41 AM
It takes a lot of neglect to make a 3 to 4 y/o stinky. Yeah they're messy little critters, but they don't have BO or any of the other fun stuff that comes with puberty.

At first reading I thought maybe the teacher just went off her meds.

Possibly, but there are also a number of genetic diseases which make people give off a bad smell because they don't have the right enzyme to metabolize certain chemicals.

Dear Ms. Sheng, the word you're looking for is "unkempt," as opposed to the word "unkept." I realize you only teach Pre-K but do try to get your spelling right. Also, the community learning center offers a free typing and computer classes on Thursday nights, and I think they'll be offering one called "Intrduction to the Internet" soon.

No it isn't. She is merely informing them of the potential danger their child faces should the need arise to drag the child to safety. Basically it won't happen because your little ball of feces leaves skid marks everywhere he goes. We all know the type. That one greasy kid that leaves smears of... SOMETHING on everything they touch. Do you WANT dysentery?
