Now here is the disclaimer.
Everything I write in this blog is true, has happened, just no one’s name or at least there real name is used. If you think this is about you, or your child, please, it’s pure coincidence, that, or you are narcissistically vain.
Things are detailed as they involve my child and his day to day happenings. Nothing is fabricated, made up. No artistic licence is used to make the blog longer, funnier, more offensive or in-depth.
These things have happened.
I’m just not afraid to write about them!
Now the post.
This post, originally caused fucking mayhem at school. But just like Colonel Kurtz, let’s give it another go, and deal with the outcome the only way I know how.
By not giving a fuck anymore!
So, at Magoos school, there is a very tight knit, cult like group of parents.
Everyone has a chance to be part of this group, but probably like me, don’t have the right chromosomes or the inclination to join a cult.
Anyways, we will get back to them later.
I think the school Magoo goes to is amazing. Let’s just get that out there.
He has had an amazing education there so far. In our eyes, he’s thriving. He has a fantastic little group of friends and his teachers are good.
Some are alot better then others, but hey, I’m no teacher, what would I know.
Some of these things that have happened, have been spoken about to family members and very close friends, who also just happen to be teachers and in the education industry.
Some are new to teaching, some are harden veterans, while others are at the end of there careers. Some are governors (not at Magoos school). Some are head teachers. Some are specialist teachers, but all have the children’s safety and education in mind.
So I’ve got a broad spectrum of the views and opinions of other teaching professionals on my side.
Some even as far off as the other side of the world…..stick that in your hay and smoke it Mofos.
Now let’s gets back to the Redux part.
I wrote a beautiful piece on helicopter parents in general, and with some description of the ones I have the misfortune to interactract with at Magoo’s school.
The post had an overview of what Mumsnet, of all places, was using as a description to the wider world, of what a helicopter parent actually was.
I think the day after, or a few days after this post when live, I received an email from Magoo’s school, asking me to stop writing my blog.
But more importantly, I think the helicopter parents had complained to the school, and the governors, many of them being members of the village where the school is. Odd that.
In the original post I had mentioned no names, just brief descriptions of the sort of helicopter parents, we as normal parents have to face..
To help, here is the official description of what a helicopter parent is defined as, plus the main #hash tags used, thanks to the Urban dictionary.
