Never heard this one before!

  1. Today a third grader was sent to me because his hand was cramping from taking too many math notes. And his teacher actually wrote that on his nurse pass!!!! This happened while I was dealing with two first graders - one who ate the rock salt from the parking lot and the other who ate a crayon.

    Has the whole school gone mad??

    so the teacher couldn't come up with stretching out the hand a few times as a solution? What, what am I saying? Of course not - it's much easier to send the kid out to you and have you do that than to use a modicum of common sense. Pass the buck instead of fix the issue

    It is the way of the snowflake. Be very aware, snowflakes are now of working age, and urban centers have the highest concentration. Thank you NEA.

    Snowflakes exist in every age/race/gender demographic. There is no difference regarding the sense of entitlement between the youngsters I treat in the school and the baby boomers I treat at the SNF.

    I see a huge difference in the rural area I live and the urban area I work. I have a small handful of snowflakes at school, but the adult children of the urban clientele are ridiculous, mostly 30-50 year olds.

    Your hateful snow-phobic speech offends me. Winter deserves respect too...

    Based on past conversation regarding generational differences, I think we have very different opinions on what constitutes "snowflake" behavior.

    I don't consider a generation that is hopeful to be paid a livable wage should be chastised by a generation that grew up when it was possible to pay for college by working part time and then secure a job that paid enough to purchase a home right out of school. Inflation has not kept up with cost of living and there is no comparison.
