We stumbled across a fantastic article in The Daily Stir and simply had to share. It's not just pertinent to parents of school-aged kids, but for pre-school and child care parents as well.
From sending in sick kids and putting everyone else at risk to allowing children to wear ridiculous outfits and making every other parent's life a misery, if you're one of these parents, you should see your actions from everyone else's perspective.
5 Annoying Things Parents of School-Aged Kids Do
by Kristen Chase
When my kids were little, they were with me most of the time, so for the most part, I didn't have to deal with the choices of other parents. Hey, I'm not perfect, but I would like to think I'm pretty considerate of others. Well, most of the time, anyway.
But now that they're all in school, it's like a constant barrage of inconsiderate behaviour. Oh the annoying things parents do.
If you've got school-aged kids like me, then my guess is that you've had to deal with this as well. And while I do my best to grin and bear it, I'd really love to give these parents a piece of my mind.
