I am having some trouble trying to decide if I should laugh or if I should be disturbed about how coddled this child must be!
An eight year old (I'm thinking third grade?) German boy stole his teachers keys, fired up her compact and crashed it into a Volvo. Why? Because his teacher sent him out of class and he was going home to tell Mommy! Now I have an imagination but even I can't make this stuff up!!
When I was eight I was still learning to ride my bike. If I was acting up so bad that I needed to be sent out of class, my parents were the last people I wanted to see!
*But this child steals his teacher's keys. Yeah, that morals lesson stuck!
*He tries to drive her car. Because his parents have taught him so much about safety and endangering others!
*And he's doing it all because he's going home to whine to Mommy about being treated unfairly? Good job on teaching your child consequences!
Over $10,000 in damages were done. In my house that child would never have an allowance again! And you know he wasn't covered by his parents' insurance.
But let's look at this again. How in the world did this child get out of the school without someone noticing? How long do you think it's going to take for someone to sue the school for negligence? And how much do you think they'll win?
The world has gone mad I tell you! Mad!!
