If your heading home from school and get a call from your child’s angry teaching informing you that she’s sitting in the office 30minites after the bell has gone at the end off the day. When you get hold of the person whom agree to pick child up and they didn’t even realise the time or that its a bloody big deal. You get home and explain your disappointed and angry. And not even an apology.
I’m ropeable, in 13 years as a parent I’ve never picked my kids up late. The few occasions I thought I would be late I rang and explained and was on my way. To lecture others on proiorties and time management and to not say sorry when they stuffed up. Its huge deal for me. I feel my child was let down and myself. My first damn day of school and I was ready feeling bad for not being there. Its a trust thing. Its working out what’s important. Its stepping up when and keeping your word when you agree to something. Its about my child.
