F* YOU XXX

​Posting this to remember and for my fellow warriors, educators. I sent this email. I am XXX out all information that would identify the humans behind it. Not because people like this deserve kindness, but because there is an innocent and really awesome child who is the real victim behind it.

XXX,

I never intended to email you and will remove you immediately from any further publications from MTG. I was very taken aback by your email. A lot has happened over the last years. Sounds like great things for XXX.

D​on’t you dare ever come near me or my family or any of the children (nor their families) that you label as “sociopaths.” ​

The post below is dedicated to the moms that will bulldoze and hurt any child or adult in their path to “success.” You are outnumbered and we refuse to be silenced anymore.

Sincerely,

Educators around the world.

Dear XXX of the world,

You need to stop. You need to take a deep breath and think about your words and actions. You also need to take accountability and it starts here today. This behavior will not go unchecked.

It ends now.

It starts with all of you reading this (especially you cancer moms who truly know what hardships are). It also starts with all the educators who now are the supermajority of my readership) who are SICK of this narrative. Sick of these parents who kill community and take up 99% of our time. So this is for you educators who love children and sometimes have to say hard things to do right by that child. Educators who are bullied by parents who hold power and money over them. It stops here.

So educators and cancer moms see the email below.  This email was prompted by a mass email from Mind the Gap. Seriously, a mass email about a program to help young adults. And one month later…XXX decides to reply (a bit scary that she sat on this reply for a month). If I go missing…you know where to look!

Classy right?

Super classy. 

And right here you have it. STOP it XXX. STOP blaming others. Stop blaming the “other kids.” And who calls children “junior sociopaths?” Wait…I know. Do you?:) 

And you readers may be thinking… This is the most extreme thing you have ever seen. This must be a XXX thing. But no! This is not unheard of at all. Okay wait to be fair, the use of a “c” word is unheard of, but I guess that’s just how XXX rolls. She is one classy “c”. But teachers receiving bullying emails of this tone are not unheard of. I’ve seen Kindergarten teachers get emails like this. Yes. Kindergarten teachers!

This behavior is not alright and I’m calling it out. So world here it is. This is a peek behind the curtain of private schools. This is how some women behave when ​they​ hear something that we don’t like, especially about our children and this was over SIX years ago. That is the scariest part. This is over six years ago. This woman is bat shit crazy.

The lesson here… Parents the next time a coach, a teacher, an administrator tells you that they are worried about their child, just listen. You don’t need to agree and that is why there are choices in schools and settings. But you also don’t need to be XXX.

And guess what XXX! We have more in common than you know. I get you. I don’t like hearing bad news either, especially about my children. I’ve gotten really bad news. One that could actually “ruin” a life. And if you could believe it, I’m not referring to the experience you and I both went through with private schools. ​​I also got hard news about my child from the exact same school. It wasn’t a fit for him either.

So XXX, when I was in your exact shoes with my own child… Did I cry? Yes. Was I frustrated? Yes. Did I feel a loss? Yes. Did I feel like the experience my child was having in school did not jive with the potential I knew he had? Yes.

Now did I write to the teacher / administrator and call her a “cunt?” NO.

So XXX. FUCK YOU.

God that feels good. I have been waiting my entire career to say that.

FUCK YOU XXX and all the other XXXS that are hurting teachers out there.

You are bullies.

You are what is wrong with the world.

If you think we educators get off on hurting kids, you are truly crazy (or named XXX). And if anything, we have all the incentive in the world to NOT tell you if your child is not thriving. We can keep your money at your child’s expense. It’s hard to replace the kids that we lose! That is lost capital. But, no. That is not what educators do, no child’s happiness is worth that. We are there for your children and sometimes there are hard times. 

And then there are good times! I am thrilled to hear that your child is happy and thriving! That is awesome. He found the right setting.

My child did too. He’s so happy. Thanks for asking.

Sincerely,

Abby Brody​ and all the teachers who have had to work with you​
