I'm just tuckered but need to vent too...we had a thanksgiving feast at my school. At my level,t he kids bring in something to share at our potluck feast. At the feast the kids were taking little bites of their food and then chucking it then making a beeline for the desserts. I sent them back before they had a chance to make it to the trashcan and told them they had to finish 'one of something' on their plates before dessert. When they got to the dessert table, they just piled everything on their plates! The para was supposed to be serving them and I'd finally had enough! I told her control what they take/you give them! She responds, "i know" but with her hands up in the air like she has no control! Take charge, for goodness sake! A couple of parents were around and I'm sure they thought I was the wicked witch of the west but my goodness! the kids were out of control. These parents were a bit better than last year's...at least they helped out but the wanton waste really got to me. Thanks, I needed to vent! I wish we could do something else but everyone does a feast. I guess I just had a bad day.
