Now Coy gets to return to school and she can use the bathroom with the other girls and even though her parents are happy with the outcome I think this is sort of absurd to begin with. Coy’s passport and state-issued identification recognize her as female. Her classmates and teachers refer to her as female. She is a little girl, so she should be able to pee like a little girl. More
The point I find most shocking about this story is that the six-year-old son ofÂ Mieke Crane actually had a Lego gun, because these tiny little pieces that come with your 150 dollar Batman Arkham Asylum Breakout or whatever you have sold a kidney to purchase for your kid are the first things to get lost. I saw a Lego gun briefly once, way back in the holiday season of 2011, before it was promptly mistaken for an ant and vacuumed up. They are usually less than an inch big. They would make a really excellent weapon for a mouse who grew up with poor nutrition. More
I can see not having this day because for one, it seems like it would give kids a chance to ape up all sorts of awful gay stereotypes as they minced off to the cafeteria wearing their ball gowns and boas and two, of course parents are going to lose their shit over this because OMG IT WILL GIVE KIDS THE GAY.

I have no idea what a “diversion” program is but I hope it has something to do with Being! Safe! At! Science! because basically that’s the only class our girl Kiera needs, because I don’t want her to blow her hand off when I’m hoping she goes on to do great things in college. And I say our girl because Kiera is OUR girl, over 200,000 of you signed a petition protesting her arrest and we talked about her on Twitter a lot. More
I hope these parents get their concerns addressed and their kid is feeling okay about school, because if I were him I certainly won’t be all excited about waking up in the morning. Kids have enough issues with bullying and schoolwork fears and to add being humiliated and forced to do something this icky I don’t blame this kid for being upset by this. I know teaching is a very demanding and stressful job, and I love and admire teachers so much. Just not the ones who act like creeps like this one in New York. More
Do you guys remember your best friend from when you were little? Of course you do! There is nothing like having a really close friend when you are tiny, someone to always save you a seat on the bus, someone who will share their gum with you, someone who will present you with stick figure crayon drawings of the both of you wearing crowns and holding hands. Best friends are the best! BFF forever! Because I don’t get out much I consider you guys my BFFs and even though we don’t live close enough to share Bonnie Bell lip gloss I totally would! More
I know some of you readers hate the articles we write where we tell you really awful stories like this. I hate them too, because like a lot of you I have kids in elementary school and it’s stories like these that leave me feeling hopeless and disgusted and utterly frustrated as a parent. Do I have to remind my 10-year-old to never plan to rape and murder girls? Do I have to tell my 8-year-old daughter to be careful of a boy planning to rape and murder her while she is having “quiet reading” time in class? I’m sorry I have to write about a story like this, but I HAVE to write about a story like this because as parents we all need to take proactive measures to stop things like this from happening. More
Yes, this story is awful and creepy and I’m really happy it happened to none of our kids, but the most important question is if I have reached Weekly World News status by writing it up on Mommyish. Also, do we think the teacher was a Twilight fan and just took it way too far? More
I spend a lot of time telling people to get involved in their kids schools and classrooms! Over and over again, “Volunteer!” I tell people how rewarding it is, how important it is, how helpful it is. I sing the praises of parental involvement in the school systems. God, I sound like a nag. But now, I’m starting to wonder if all my volunteer work might not annoy my child more than it motivates her. More

My eldest son was always different, in that from a very young age he has always been extremely easy to deal with. Perfect grades, finishing his classwork before the other students, creating perfect replicas of Corbusier architecture with his Legos at age four, reading at an accelerated level all throughout his childhood. We were informed that he was “special” during elementary school, and attended the “special” meeting for the parents of these “special” kids before they were placed in the advanced program.

Just your average day at elementary school. 10-year-old is accused of stealing $20 from a classmate. He says he didn’t do it. Teacher doesn’t believe him and sends him to the assistant principal. Crazy assistant principal strip searches him. More
Who here remembers the last two weeks of school in December? I’m talking about before finals were an issue for anyone to worry about. I mean in elementary school. Who remembers their backsides falling asleep in their wooden chairs as the class watched movies and played corny games and generally acted like they were attending the most boring daycare on the planet, not an educational facility? More
It’s my opinion that there probably aren’t too many members of this group who have children, because most parents either love the nostalgic charm of Charlie Brown, and if their personal religious beliefs conflict with Linus and his speech about the origins of Christmas, they probably use that as a “teaching moment.” More
