Aaaaaaagh! Just had a parent barging into my class at the end of the day - her little darling in tow. Said darling son in floods of tear - year 6! He had been told off and it wasn't his fault. He had told her what had happened and i was picking on him. She was 'all guns blazing' and he was standing with her arms around him while she told me how unfair i am and how i should take notice of and learn to deal with his ADHD - which by the way no one in school believes he has. She also told me as he stood by listening - that she believes everything he tells her because he doesn't tell lies. Sorry but i have yet to meet a child who doesn't lie sometimes. I began to explain that he had not been picked on - he had been asked to focus on his work a number of times before he was moved and no it wasn't the fault of the child next to him because he was actually turning around to talk to the children at the table behind him. Fortunately, a member of SLT came along as she was laying in to me in the corridor and joined the meeting in a very supportive manner. Ended with said parent apologising but fear the damage has been done to my relationship with her son - he now knows that she believes every word that eminates from his lips. Okay rant over and yes i know it wasn't actually about a parents evening but still - thanks for listening.
