Her sister was also sick, fever an sore throat, her brother had a low grade fever and ached all over. I wasn't the best either, sore throat and fever.

            , Ok, I got a good laugh out of this, especially #14, but its a sad,sad situation for these parents. How are they supposed to help their kids with something as simple as homework when they need help themselves?

              I saw this a few years ago when I first became a teacher and thought there was no way parents would do this, but I can second Catherine on this one, parents are just as clueless as their kids sometimes.
              Christine + Will (married 7/20/07) + Ainsleigh (born 6/25/08) + Nolan (born 11/9/10) + Delaney (born 12/31/13) = One Very Happy Family!

                I had a parent ask me for a daily report on their foster child I was sending them home on a regular basis trying to figure out why i saw not changes in her behavior. Come to find out the foster mother can not read. I am sending something home for you to assist me with your child and you cant read!!!
