fusillade762: What's a Chater School?
Cagey B: fusillade762: What's a Chater School?A place where they engage in imporper detention.
ncsu_wolfpack: "Suit against Chinese Immersion Chater School alleges imporper detention"Ha! I see what they did there.
DeathByGeekSquad: Snark aside, it's extremely harmful to those suffering PTSD to only assume that they come from assault victims or military vets. There are more means of succumbing to it than what the media has fed you.
CruJones: Nothing the school did sounds unepreasonable. He missed recess? Really?Oh, your son told you he did t do it therefore he couldn't have, of course.
Dinjiin: You can sue for whatever you want. Winning the suit is an entirely different matter.As for the kid, it does sound as if he might be emotionally underdeveloped. The crying he exhibited in relation to his punishment might be something I'd expect at or before age 6... maybe 7. But not at age 9. Also, emotionally underdeveloped kids tend to act out and misbehave in weird ways. That might explain him lashing out at other students. Lastly, the extreme response of the parents screams over-protection.Next question is if this kid will be blacklisted from private schools.
Benevolent Misanthrope: DeathByGeekSquad: Snark aside, it's extremely harmful to those suffering PTSD to only assume that they come from assault victims or military vets. There are more means of succumbing to it than what the media has fed you.And detention is not one of them. Calling this PTSD makes it a bullshiat diagnosis again, just when real PTSD diagnoses are being taken seriously.
FreakyBunny: I can sue for being given detention? I'm going to be rich. More money than God. Someone find me a lawyer.
swingerofbirches: I was given detention once and I found it extremely indignifying. I went to a run-down public school that advertised how it spent the least per student in the state to appease the conservative electorate of the town. The hallways were overcrowded, the bathroom stalls had no doors, classrooms were literally flooded when it rained, mold everywhere, exposed absestos, not to mention overcrowded. Anyhow, that is to set the scene of how getting from one side of the building to another was difficult with the crowds in the hallways. I had extreme OCD, anxiety, and Tourette's. I was someone who tried to live beyond reproach. I took Spanish, which was on the other side of the school because it was supposed to only be for 8th graders and I was in 7th grade on the other side. I was late to the Spanish class twice, which happened frequently to other students as well for the same reason: that it was impossible to get from one side of the school to the other in two minutes. This meant I was given a detention. I had somewhat uninvolved parents who both worked full time, and so I went to the detention, while my friends' parents had the charges of being late dismissed because of the unreasonableness. I felt humiliated and degraded. I was forced to write in Spanish fifty times that I would not be late again. Even being a star student, this took me an extremely long time due to my OCD and having to touch the letters with my pencil a certain number of times. There was no set amount of time for detention-only however long it took you to write this. The troublemakers in there with me seemed to finish very quickly. I finally finished and handed it to the teacher. She tore it up in front of me and threw it in the trash. I was very nice to that teacher. I was attentive and interested, in spite of the fact that she was not qualified to teach Spanish.I cannot imagine a person going into education and feeling that part of their job would be to tear students down. What class in pedagogy do you ...
Bigdogdaddy: The last thing I would ever do is go home and tell the old man that I got in trouble at school. There would have been non sympathy and the punishment would have been much worse.
BluVeinThrobber: Detention hall in high school was named after me
mikewadestr: Kid got whacked by Wang! No wonder why he has PTSD.
SirDigbyChickenCaesar: BluVeinThrobber: Detention hall in high school was named after meWell I probably would get PTSD if I was sent to BluVeinThrobber Hall every time I acted up.
White_Scarf_Syndrome: DeathByGeekSquad: Snark aside, it's extremely harmful to those suffering PTSD to only assume that they come from assault victims or military vets. There are more means of succumbing to it than what the media has fed you.i wouldn't wish PTSD on my worst enemy.The worst type stems from childhood abuse.
