One thing that got me into teaching

Don't know if it's true, but it's a little story I heard a long time ago from a friend in Japan:

A boy was misbehaving at the playground. His mom tried everything to get him to stop messing around, stop acting like the little troublemaker that he was. Nothing worked. Finally, exasperated, she shouted, "I'm telling your teacher!"

He quickly settled down.

This is soo funny. After I read this (out loud, to my daughter and one of your buddies)I couldn't help but look at the kids at the park with their parents and wonder if they think that. While at a restaurant yesterday, a father was telling his little boy that he needed to behave because "she" would get mad at him. Did he read your little story? I gave the boy a kinda stern look to back up the dad. It didn't scare him though. Still acted up....
