Mum moaning about teacher’s ‘rude’ email gets roasted by other parents on Reddit

A woman is moaning on Reddit about her son's teacher after receiving a "rude" email from her.

The anonymous mum wrote in the Am I The A**hole forum where she explained her son was struggling at school.

She claims her son has ADHD and anxiety so often requires constant "stimuli" during classes.

The parent blamed the teacher for her child's lack of interest as she believes he's not "engaging enough" in lessons.

She also told Reddit she wrote several emails to the teacher and recently received a reply she thought was "rude".

Now the woman is asking others on the online forum whether or not they agree with her.

She said: "The teacher is not old enough to be trusted with the responsibility of teacher. She looks like she's in her 20s.

"I have reached out to her multiple times and she's only told me to check in on him, keep him on track etc. but I do all of that.

"She asked if I would like to take time to come up with a plan, to which I responded she should be doing her job and doing it her own.

"I am quite out of patience with this teacher. I sent another email drawing attention to the issue. This morning I had a rude response."

Sharing a copy of the teacher's email, it read: "I am tired of receiving emails from you regarding this.

"I have tried telling you this politely but the message hasn't seemed to get to you: this is your issue.

"I cannot do anything when he mutes his microphone, and he is failing because he does not pay attention in class and turns in less than half of his work, most of which is incomplete anyway.

"I have reached out to you with solutions, and you have refused to cooperate. You need to take control in your own home and put a stop to this behaviour because I can only do so much."

The offended mum claimed the teacher was "judging her ability as a parent" and that she was "at the end of her rope" with her.

She added: "I wrote an email to the principal explaining what had happened. He responded and said he'd look into the matter."

Since she shared the dilemma, the post racked up 7,000 upvotes and around 2,300 comments.

One said: "Parents need to parent their kids? Whatever next? The teacher is not present – you are. Parent. Your Child."

Another added: "But the teacher is young and 'clearly' doesn't have kids. How can she possibly know anything?"

A third commented: "As a teacher in her 20s, parents like this infuriate me!

"When I have anywhere from 10-30 kids online in my class, there is only so much I can do…"

And a fourth wrote: "This is absurd, the email from the teacher wasn't even that rude."
