Stern...



One of my favorite teachers that a lot of my classmates didnt like was stern, but it showed he cared and would work with us until we passed. I still love history to this day.

I am just curious. I have three schools in mind I want to send Mo to and at one of them I know both kindergarten teachers. One is very sweet and good to the kids but she lets behavior problems go ignored until they get to first grade and then the kid is in the habit of misbehaving. The other is very good to the kids and amazing teacher but she has no issue with getting in a kid's face to get them back on track. I have friend's who kids go to this school and one of them was in the stern teacher's class. She threw a fit and asked for him to be moved to another class and once he was he was then sent to special programs because the teacher didn't know how to handle him.

I'd rather go with the stern teacher. As long as they aren't being abusive in any way that sort of teaching style will be more beneficial in the long run than someone just waiting to hand off a kid that they have trouble handling.

I wouldn't want passive in that manner, my teacher used to throw desks at the wall when he was mad...I suppose "stern" wouldn't be a good description. He used fear to control us, and used to make us feel awful.

It is insane how schools have changed since we were kids. We had a PE teacher like that. He would make us sit with our heads to our knees for the entire PE period if he was pissed for any reason. Now that shit would not fly.

Quoting Monica♥YASDYARDFR:" Would you rather your child's teacher be overly stern or overly passive?"


A good mix of both but if I have to choose, overly stern.



I'd rather she get a proper education than not.

Thank you. Her 1st birthday is coming up and I think I'll feel better after that about leaving her with others.
