Teachers!  we hear many excuses of your kids not doing their homework, but the most famous excuse of them all isssss: MY DOG ATE MY HOMEWORK!….I really don’t know what kids think these days…do they actually think we are going to believe them?

Other excuses:

– my brother/sister  tore my homework.

– I left it in my shirt and my mother put the shirt in the wash.

– My mum/dad/brother/sister thought it was rubbish.

-What homework?

– I thought it was due tomorrow/next week.

Did you used to make up excuses for not doing your homework?  Please share with us 🙂

This is the teachers’ favvvvorite topic! Parents this is becoming a big issue nowadays and it’s like the new trend!

Everyday during dismissal half of the parents don’t show up, but who does instead? Either the nanny or the driver…If i were a parent I would do anything just to see my child‘s face at the end of the day and hug him and get into the car together and get ready to go home. Believe me it would mean the world to them!

This is one issue,,,however another issue is the homework. I had a few kids whose homework wasn’t done by them and when I asked them they would tell me my nanny did it or she is helping me with my school work. Say what????

Please note that the nannies or helpers in our community are not very well educated and their English isn’t that good. Many of my kids used to speak incorrect grammar because they used to copy their nanny.

Now that is shocking, first teachers are not sending homework for your nanny to complete it and second parents or siblings are the ones who are supposed to support.

Where is the family bonding? Where is the parent’s involvement? This just saddens me and please note that this will affect the child mentally.
