by something I read in yesterday's paper.
I'll copy it here, word for word, I won't change a thing.
Rising numbers of British children are still in nappies when they start primary school.
Staff say they are increasingly forced to disrupt classes to change pupils or clear up "accidents" because parents think toilet training is a school's job.
Teachers also report that children are generally less independent, needing help with putting on coats and changing for physical education."
I'm telling you, I almost choked on my coffee!
How does such a thing happen??
Since when is it a school's job to toilet train your children??
I'm not including special needs children in my rant, they have extenuating circumstances,
I believe the article is about normal children of school age who are exhibiting much less independence than is common.
I'm surprised the teachers haven't called for strike action or a huge pay increase or something.
How can parents think this is right?
