Dear Mr. Preschool Parent,

I understand that you sometimes get phone calls at inopportune times.  It happens to us all, really.  And so I don’t hold the fact that you walked into the preschool whilst talking on your cell phone against you. 

My beef, Mr. Parent, is with the fact that instead of finishing your phone call out in the hall, you walked into the classroom with the phone still attached to your ear.  Then, when I wanted to speak to you about your child and what that child had gotten in trouble for doing that day — which was fairly serious, really — you just managed to give me a small part of your attention and you didn’t even remove the phone from your ear.  Nor did you even mouth an apology.  You just nodded, picked up your child, and left.

Please do not ever do that again.  Or I just might have to rip the phone out of your hands and beat you with it get angry.

Sincerely yours,

    Who would have thought. Parenting does not come naturally. Nor should all be parents.
    Hang in there….
