If you were a receptionist, and I handed you a large envelope that was marked "Return to Client"... what would you do with it? Would you.. I dunno, let's say.... return it to the client? Or, would you do what Elderly CW did, and put it on a fucking shelf for A FUCKING YEAR!!!!??!?!?!?!!! *deep breath, serenity now* .. Me: "I think we'll need a mailing box this year to return [client's] source documents. Can you get me one please?" Elderly CW: "Should we put this big packet in it, too?" Me: "What big packet?" Elderly CW: "This one out here on the shelf marked *puts on glasses, reading slowly* 'Return to client.'" Me, walking over to see WTF: "[elderly cw name], that is last year's stuff! Why is it still sitting there?" Elderly CW: "Oh, was I supposed to mail this back to him?" *rage* I might just high-speed crab-crawl ala Korean horror films over to her and rage-choke her til her eyeballs bug out. Feelin' mighty stabby, friends and neighbors, mighty effing stabby.

That job I applied to that I am underqualified for? They just called me up for an interview. And they didn't post the salary. So I checked on Glassdoor to see what I'd be worth in this industry. Ho. Lee. Shit. I can get myself my Tesla if I get this job!

In response to a confession. OMG I feel your pain. My CW does this also, along with long, loud, heavy sighs - as she furiously bangs on her laptop with her clicky fake nails and 20 silver bracelets/bangles clacking against the desk.

Here's the evidence I have so far- 1. I heard her raise her voice to him to stop hitting his teacher (pretty normal), 2. I saw her hold his hand back from hitting her (normal), 3. I thought I saw her hand flinch in an impulse to hit him WHILE HE WAS HITTING HER but SHE DIDN'T. IT WAS SUCH A SMALL GESTURE THAT MOST PEOPLE WOULDN'T HAVE CAUGHT IT. All I have so far is a vibe that she is in a very challenging situation and is not the most skilled parent.. Kids often act out when they are neglected and abused, but kids with moderate autism and language disorders, like my student, act out because their communication skills are low, which his are, and this child is definitely in the wrong placement. I have an emergency meeting set up to discuss that. Where I live is probably very different from where you live. It's rough here. I work in special education at a Title I school. I have reported to CPS before. I take the same class you take on recognizing abuse and neglect, every year.

In response to a confession. Seriously, where do you live? Teachers here are mandated to report and SUSPECTED cases of abuse and neglect. Abuse can take many forms, not all of which leave marks. If you have even gone through the bare minimum amount of training, you would know that. You would also know that reporting is completely anonymous. Heck, our state mandates that we take a "Recognizing Abuse and Neglect" continuing education class every, single year. It's the only required class we must repeat every year for a reason.

In response to a confession. You should report everything no matter how small you think it is. I work very closely with DHS and building that evidence matters. They won't take it seriously if you call it in more than 24 hours later. Build that case. Also, you are a mandatory reporter so even if you didn't see the kid with the belt mark you knew about it and you are responsible for reporting that as well. If she was not reporting she was not doing her job.

It hasn't been reported yet because we don't have evidence. He has been at our school for a little over a week. All we have seen is that mom, who is in a difficult situation with a special needs child, doesn't seem to have parenting skills. I've seen her yell at him to stop hitting (me) and grab his hand to stop him from hitting her, and that's it. Once I thought I saw her start to raise her hand to him and stop herself, but that's not enough to have me call CPS. I can't call them and say "His mom's hand flinched slightly." So far it's just a hunch and a situation that we are keeping our eye on. I'm aware of my obligation as a mandated reporter. I have seen teachers fail to report and have leaned on them for it. A child came to school with a belt mark on his face, and his teacher didn't report until we demanded she report- for three days. That was unconscionable. The minute I see her hit him, or he says she does, or I see a mark, I will not hesitate to report.

In response to a confession. If you and your principal think he may be abused at home why the hell haven't you reported it? Aside from the whole common decency and moral obligation to protect him, you are mandated reporters and legally required to report it. I am a teacher, and teachers who look the other way in suspected abuse cases make me furious and sick.

My student had a good day today. He let the other kids hug him and wish him happy birthday. He didn't scratch me, bite me, or try to escape from the building!
