Quora Question: As a teacher, what was the most inappropriate thing you’ve seen a parent do that is harmful for their child in the long run?

When I was working at a middle school, we had a boy brought into the office because he was bullying and abusing smaller and younger boys. He was told to sit in a chair next to the vice principal’s office while his parents were called.

Within 20 minutes, the boy’s father stormed into the office and made a beeline to his son and grabbed him by the hair, and started slapping the poor boy around.

It wasn’t hard to see where the kid had learned his behavior.

Not only was this child being abused and bullied by his own father, but he was mirroring the same behavior with other children. He was learning that this was how “a man” behaved in society. Plus he was humiliated in front of the whole office staff by publicly being abused when he thought he was acting manly.

On top of that, he watched his father being arrested when the police were called.

How can all of this not affect him as harmful in the long run? And this was just one day. How many other days did something like this, or worse, happen to this 12-year-old?

  1. Bet you a nickel the guy thinks he is a good x-ian. Bet you another nickel that more money is spent on alcohol than household necessities. I have one nickel left, I’ll bet the wife gets a good dose of that kind of loving too.

    I’m no teacher. But I’ve seen enough of it in my day to have a real good sense of which guys are like you described. They exude asshole-ism. You can see it from across the street. You can feel it riling up your sense of “this is unjustifiable horse crap” every time you get a glimpse of it.

    Sad reality, nowhere near enough of these guys wind up in jail. Nowhere near enough battered wives escape the brutality, …and way too many kids grow up to be far too much like their daddies.
