    I have 3 kids in public schools. Never once were they told they had to pay to use the bathrooms in school. Does it happen in your kids' schools?

    I'm talking about medical emergencies. Simple as that.

    If they're abusing bathroom breaks, they can be cut back without humiliating them.
    WTH?!...a teacher once tried to use the denial of a trip to the bathroom on my daughter during two hour class when she was in middle school. Let's just say she came to regret that decision.

    I understand that teaching is a hard job, and that they don't get a lot of recognition or credit for the hard work they do. However, they are not all selfless heroes. They often get treated like police officers do; the assumption is made that they are noble and faultless because of their position. I encountered so many teachers when my kids were in school that lacked the temperament, the resourcefulness and the intellect to be teachers and yet there they were, shaping young minds. If, as a teacher, you can't be enough of an adult when disciplining kids then to resort to bully tactics like this then you shouldn't be in the role.

    Well, that's something new! Sheesh! Do little kids have a time limit on peeing, or something?

    No you're not, unless you misread grip.

    Supposedly, the teacher would've let the child go, if it were an emergency. But the little girl only had $50 left of class money and wanted to buy some popcorn with it later, so she peed herself. Now a little kid choosing a treat over the bathroom is not a surprise but a teacher using that as a ransom on a student is SO stupid.
    Emergency in that context was on the basis of imminent release, not a medical emergency. You then replied directly to the above message by saying a 7 year old doesn't understand the concept of an emergency, which if you meant what grip meant, you would be incredibly wrong. If you meant a medical emergency, that would almost be beside the point.

    When I was in 6th grade, my classes were so far apart that I literally couldn't run thru the crowded halls fast enough to get there without being late. My teacher kept sending me to the Dean, who kept paddling me, hard. One day, I came home and couldn't sit down, when my father inquired what was happening. After I explained that the teacher and Dean didn't want to hear my reasoning for being late, my dad called the Dean and said, if he laid another hand on me, my father would kick his ass. My old man was a big dude and not clumsy. They finally believed me and changed my classes around, and I was never tardy again.

    It should've never happened, even once, but the school had inflexible rules and didn't want to listen to a legitimate excuse. Some common sense and caring go a long ways in most situations.

    No, emergency means the 7 year old could be physically harmed by holding in his urine. There are many risks involved.
    And who pays if a kid wets his pants because he/she can't wait? Do they have to sit the rest of the day with wet pants? Beware the teacher that tries that with one of my grandchildren! I guarantee the confrontation wouldn't be pleasant, cause I know my children! BTW, I'd do the same! :

    grip has nothing to do with my post about medical emergencies and why I oppose a teacher having this kind of power.
