Posted on 12/02/2012 9:11:59 AM PST by george76
The mother of a 7-year-old Irving elementary school student says her son wet his pants in class after his teacher refused to let him use the restroom
Cross' son, an honor roll student, needed to go to the bathroom, but he sat back down because he didnt have any Boyd Bucks, his mother said.
"He tried to hold it as much as he could, but he just couldnt," Cross said. "He came home from school, and he was crying and really upset."
"Really, that's just unhealthy," Cross said. "I think that she had no concern for the children."
Cross complained to the teacher, but didnt like the response.
"Originally when I first spoke with the teacher, she was just going to show my son special treatment, but then I said, 'That's just not good enough. I need for you to stop this for all the children,'" she said.

Public schools are designed to prepare kids to work on (non-existent) assembly lines: two 10-minutes breaks per day, on their schedule, not your body’s. If you don’t want your kid to be an assembly line worker, don’t send him to public school. If you do, send him dehydrated.
The woman should do some research. She has grounds to sue and make a nice chunk of money. My daughter developed a urinary tract infection the first year she attended public school at the age of 10. I discovered that the teacher wouldn’t allow the children restroom breaks unless they did a math problem. As an RN who’d worked in a regional Pediatric hospital, I was livid. I put together some documentation on lawsuits won by parents and what the medical community had to say about denying bathroom breaks. I gave the documentation to the principal. The practiced stopped immediately. Because I’m a Christian, I couldn’t in good conscience take the school district to the cleaners and destroy lives just because they were ignorant.
While an admirable character trait, that is an example of why conservatives are losing against the left. The left fights like this is war to be won by any means and the right tries to fight by the equivalent of Robert's Rules of order.
The mother should publicize the teacher’s name, as well as insist that her son be removed from her classroom — better yet removed from the school. The kid needs a fresh start somewhere else.
Public schools are not good places for children.
My son is two and a half. When he is in school he will understand to think for himself. If he has to go to the bathroom, at the moment it becoms a necessity, he WILL whether anyone likes it or not.
What would happen to a parent or day care provider if they kept a child confined to the point of involuntarily urinating in his pants, especially in full view of other children.?
Hm?....Would the child welfare workers be at that parent or day care worker’s door?
Teachers and principals should be held to the **same** standards of child safety and physical and emotional treatment of children as is expected of parents. If they cross the bounds considered reasonable for parents, then these teachers and principals should have department of child welfare workers and armed police knocking on their office doors.
By the way, teachers, principals, and superintendents do have malpractice insurance. Where are the” meaner than junk a yard dog” class action attorneys when needed?
i agree... but i doubt that will happen... she won't remove him from the school... i should say, "not likely."
Ah yes. All you good folks who extoll the “virtues” of “Texas Living,” are probably “reveling” in this “enlightened approach” to education in your wonderful “land of milk and honey” state!
The truth is, “Texas Education” is a disgrace, and has been for many years, but you all ( pardon me ‘yall ) just don’t want the rest of the country to know the truth do you.
Public school teachers are evil or enablers of evil.
1) They are godless in their worldview. The children who attend will learn to think godlessly. They must just to cooperate in the godless classroom. How could it be otherwise?
2) They risk learning to be comfortable with socialism. Government schools are the very definition of a socialist-funded, single-payer, and compulsory use entitlement. They risk learning that a voting mob that is powerful enough to give them tuition-free schooling is powerful enough to give them lots of “free stuff, force them to pay for it, and force them to use it.
3) All government schools suppress every First Amendment Right.( speech, press, assembly, free exercise of religion, and all government schools teach the religion of atheism). All schools must just to maintain safety and order and all schools have a non-neutral religious worldview. However....When government does this the child risks learning to be comfortable with the government suppressing his God-given rights.
4) Government schools are compulsory for all children whose parents can't afford the jizya to ransom their child by way of home or private schooling. Children attending government schools risk learning to be comfortable with government compulsion.
He shoulda told the teacher he was working on his Piss Christ art project
........and the money should follow the student!
Hitler loved them.
I can’t imagine her leaving him there. The least she could do is reveal the teacher’s name to the press and make her life miserable.
We are commanded to **personally** forgive. We are not commanded to absolve others of the just consequences of their actions.
By withholding just and righteous consequences from ignorant and willfully abusive teachers other children are endangered.
My rule: You raise your hand, you ask, you take the hall pass, and you go. Since there is only one hall pass, only one person may go at a time, so you wait your turn until the other person gets back. So simple even a caveman can follow it....
Setting aside your obvious hate/envy of Texas... Dallas, Houston, Austin, El Paso, and San Antonio (all LARGE cities) are the only places in Texas where you will find liberal filth like that, at least while I lived there...
So, where are YOU from?
Two sides to the issue, though it looks like the teacher was wrong in this case.
I have seen the problems caused by rigid teachers who don’t use common sense or compassion for issues like this.
I’ve also been on the other side as a Sunday School teacher. Nearly every kid in my 5th grade class “needed” to go to the bathroom every week during a one hour class. I sent a note home to the parents telling them that either the kids were making a game out of this and needed to discuss it with his/her parents or else that they needed to take their kids to the bathroom before Sunday School. The situation improved considerably after that.
