Does anyone have any student relatives in their school?
and if so...do you enforce the law with them?
My sister in law (almost) is now in year 11..and she's idle, manipulative and just out and out lazy sometimes, unless she likes her lessons..
She had a bit of an e-mail abuse session yesterday that ended up in her printing out a snippet guaranteed to enrage her mother and make her look like an innocent victim, while painting a lad she knows her mother has a historical dislike of as the bad one.
This led to me being shouted at over the phone at work, a threat of "going to the media to show how badly the school looks after students etc.., which led me to point out a few home truths about said sprog...I offered to show mother-in-law the video of her daughter doing nothing for an hour except pillocking about, and I offered her access to sprogs webmail account to prove the point..
That deflated her a bit..
I then went home in a foul mood and explained to the missus why. She said "In the car..", went down to her mums and tore sprog apart in the kitchen..after which I made it clear I'll be asking her teachers about behaviour, I'll be splitting her from the other student in IT lessons, I'll be looking over her shoulder all day long, and if I find something out of place, I'll make her life a living hell as only I can..and e-mail? Not a snowflakes chance in hell..
I've demo'd PolicyCentral's screen monitoring, word pickup system, the web filter and reports system, and said "you can't escape, so don't even try it..".
I've never seen her so well behaved as she was when she went back in..
Bloody children..if her brothers couldn't beat me, she has no chance..
