Should parents be able to take over their child’s school for non performance?

Interesting concept. Do you think the problems in schools like the ones in this project are the kids? The parents? The teachers? The standards? Personally, I think it is useless to try to teach children anything if they have never been taught the necessary social skills to be able to be taught. I also think that teachers are responsible to model the expectation behaviorally, before they can ever get to the idea of teaching. I would not ask someone to build a house without making sure they had a set of tools that were sufficient. Along those lines, I have learned from operating programs for expelled kids, that I could not ask them to be willing to learn and listen, when they did not have the skill set needed. That is called setting a kid up for failure. Now, with that said, it may be the parents who are responsible for not teaching the skills, but that is an entirely different topic, that we will address. What are you thinking as you read this? Please share.

If you or someone you know needs help with behavioral issues, or family problems, you can contact me for personal attention and follow through with your loved one or friend.

I am a social worker and family coach for 20+ years. I have had around 50 foster kids , worked in every and any type of facility from juvenile centers to clinical treatment centers to schools for expelled youth . I've been successful with starting schools for violent offenders , training hospital staff , entire counties of public school teachers, parents and many more on behavior management and helping families in trouble . I have been honored to speak on many occasions and to teach professionals what is wrong with our systems for kids and adults, and how I was able to have successful outcomes in all the programs that I ran. And yes- I do have all the accolades and awards and pats on the back from high places and degrees but I'm not in this for that recognition. I appreciate the acknowledgement I've received over the years, but I don't even have an " I love me" wall in the office..so I don't even know where those things are anymore ..LOL I have lived a hard life myself and grew up in a very violent and abusive home. My family Is filled with depression , addiction and suicide. I also have had to navigate my way through these areas . I use my own experience to help others. I hope you will join the awesome people who follow me and share their stories. This Is a place to come to keep it real. We all struggle . So on this site we keep it legit. No judgement. What are you waiting for? Follow! tj

  1. I think you are spot on. Kids do not have the social skills that should be modeled and taught by the family institution and bolstered by the education system. We need to be teaching our children to “Master thyself”. So many parents do not have the tools to master themselves. This post makes me think!
