Disciplining a child can be a hard thing to do. Parents like to think of their children as the best versions of themselves, and hearing that their child may or may not have done something wrong can put parents in a confusing position. On one hand, they want to stand up for their child, but on the other, if they know their child has done something wrong, the only answer is to discipline them.
An ER nurse received a phone call from her daughter’s school one day while she was at work. When she spoke with the principal, she was told that her daughter had hit another student.
The girl’s mother was very upset. She rushed to the school immediately to pick up her daughter and discipline her for misbehaving.
When she arrived at the school, she entered the principal’s office. In the principal’s office was her daughter, a teacher, a counselor, the principal, and the student who had been hit. His parents were also there with him.
