Wed, 04:06: 📷 This is a good point. If the schools can’t make kids behave, why tell the parents? https://t.co/lH0DFSWxX7

Because the kid is ultimately the *parent's* responsibility. And most parents (at least the good ones) will want to know about their kid misbehaving *anywhere*.

Also, parents have disciplinary actions that aren't available to teachers.

I just do not understand that parent's attitude. "your turf, your problem"!? and "why would I want to know?"

That's pretty much saying that the kid can do anything he wants as long as it isn't around you!

That's *not* parenting. One aspect of parenting is training your kid to act properly in society.

Another is protecting your kid when society screws up (another reason to want to know about "trouble" at school. So you can tear the teacher a new one if he was being unreasonable!)

Well if the kid has discipline problems at school but not at home, that might be because the rules are idiotic, or because the teacher is a moron and it's driving the kid bonkers.

There's a phrase found in practically every entry in many sections of the DSM. It's something that "normal" people need to learn and internalize.

I don't recall the exact words, but it's roughly "This is only a disorder if it bothers the patient or causes them difficulty in functioning in society."

And note that last bit carefully. There are a lot of things that used to be considered "disorders" (homosexuality, for one) that no longer are.

The patients haven't changed. Instead, the shrinks realized that the *actual* problem was that society was being unreasonable about said people's behaviors.

There are a lot of patients where what the therapist is doing with them isn't "curing" them. Rather, it's helping them find ways to deal with people being jerks about [whatever thing that is an integral part of themselves].

(yes, you may quote this)
