Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

What are teachers allowed to make me do?

0 answers
The first school we tried we had trouble with. It ended with a meeting between myself, three teachers and the vice principal. One teacher typed everything I said without asking me. They told me how to discipline my child, that I had to take parenting classes, and that I had to take her to a psychologist. They made me sign something saying I would do all these things. I ended up just not taking her to that school but now I'm wondering, should I have talked to my lawyer before signing anything? were they allowed to make me do any of that? This is the first time I've had a child in school so I'm not sure if they were allowed to do that or not.
