We recently had a parents evening for Year 10 at the school I teach in, and one child's mother blatantly asked me for my number. It wasn't during an appointment, and she made it clear that the purposes weren't for contacting me regarding the kid's behavior (they're an angel anyway). I awkwardly turned her down, told her if I needed to contact her I'd get the school's staff to do so for me. Is this a common situation? Has anyone dealt with it before? The poor kid was red in the face from embarrassment, and I didn't have a mirror but I reckon I was too. I'm going to presume the correct course of action is to just grin and bare it, then proceed as if it hadn't happened at all?
