kind of feeling low right now

  1. hitting a point where the parents and their threats are becoming just too much. Im not raising your kids, I am raising my own. Im here to care for them while they are in school. Im here for emergencies and to do required screenings. If you dont want them, please dont have them.

    If they are sick, keep them home cause Im going to call and keep calling until you or your spouse/friend/mailman/grocery man comes and gets them. Stop busting my chops parents seriously you are taking the fun out of my job.
    I love being a school nurse, I dont love the politics, the drama that comes along with your little entitled snowflakes being small versions of your entitled self.
    okay, whew that felt good.

    palli- Have been in the school system very long? If you haven't I feel for you. It has taken many years for me to be able to handle all kinds of parents and the kiddos. Hang in there...summer is coming. Most days, this is what I tell myself- "At the end of the day- I know I did everything I could do. Tomorrow is a new day."

    We all feel your frustrations. Take a deep breath and Just hold on to what makes you love this job. You may not feel it right now, but you are a VITAL part of your school and your students lives.

    Yep I can relate! Yep it's super annoying. I can have 10 good interactions with parents and then one will irritate me for days. I wish I could dwell as well on all the good ones! I've been doing this for 15 yrs and the parents are getting much worse. We have so many more on drugs and in poverty now. It's more normal at my school for kids to either be raised by a grandparent or one parent because the other is on drugs and there are more single dads raising kids than ever before. It drives me crazy when a kid gets a tiny welt on them and even though I sent a note (even when I felt that was overkill) I get a phone call that they should've been called yet the same parents aren't even feeding their kids well or making sure they have a coat when it's 30 degrees out. However, then it's fun to then call them EVERY SINGLE TIME I see their child for every little thing and hear the annoyance in their voice I'm calling so much! Hey you asked for it!! HAHA!!

    Cleaning out old papers i found a response letter to mgmt regarding an incident where a parent verbally abused me and then tried to complain about me.Recall of the incident is like it happened yesterday,the bruised feelings still deep and remain.I was shocked to see the date as being 5 years ago! When they hurt you it can last a long time.If I had been able to behave unprofessionally and sock them back with their insults I most likely would have felt better immediately.....alas it sucks.
