As a teenager I knew everything....I'm still trying to figure out when I forgot it all.

I'm only really posting these to embarress my Mom and Brother...

10 years ago the Junior school my brother attended ran courses for parents to learn new IT skills, as most the parents (mine in particular), had little idea how to switch on a computer let alone actually use them productivlly!!

So the local paper ran an article on the scheme as it was a novel idea to
have the children teaching the parents, I walked into my parents today and spotted this on the side I have no idea where its appeared from

My "little bro" is now 19 and over 6 feet tall.......check out those milk bottle glasses!!!

well...she has a good looking daughter and I had to get my looks from somewhere (nothing like having an ego is there??)

She looks pretty much the same now except her hair is longer..

..a lot longer..

Got your looks from somewhere?!? Your identical.

I just hope Jordan doesn't get short sighted cause he looks like his uncle, and those glasses would ruin his cred with the lil ladies at school!

Hola! you've added me a s flendypop, great! your bro looks unfeasiably excited, i love it!..perhaps he is pointing at a rude word? I started working in a school this week and suddenly view everything suspiciously!

I really want to work in a school....I was a youth worker untill the lack of babysitter at the hours of work caused me to quit!!

When the blonde kid i s alittle older and more capable of caring for himself I'm going back to uni to do a teaching degree, In the meantime I'm just loking for gainful employment with kids...not much difference to what I'm doing now...Jeweller??? LOL

Nix says:

'the blonde kid'? as in yours? LMAO! it's crazy, but be warned the year 7 + are hardcore nutters! (i say year seven cos i think they call secondary schools summit else in the states non?) and there is NOTHING wrong with being a jeweller, do you make your own?

Steph says:

Yeah "the blonde kid" is mine, Jordan he's 6 going on 16!!

And I know there's nothing wrong with being a jeweller I was just outlining the difference between what I do and what I'd ideally like to be doing, I can and so make my own jewellery but not in work...i'm on a management induction programme in theretail sector or a HUGE company called the Signet Group who own H Samuels Ernest Jones (where I work) and Leslie Davis as well as chains in the states.

I wouldn't want to teach year 7+, Key stage 2 or 3 would do me, 6, 7 and 8 year olds....still at an interesting rather than insolent age!!

and my favourite one this week has been 1.kid makes an insult to some poor sod in the class, you reprimand, 'i never even spoke'.. erm, you did you liar.I WAS RIGHT NEXT to you when you SAID it 'BUT, miss, i SWEAR didn't say anything... at all'
uh huh.

Steph says:

Sounds about right....the kids in the youth club were the same..

Only it was harder to keep control as the boudries aren't so clear, firstly they call you by your christian name which automatically takes away some of the "respect" (if we ever had it in the first place) and they dont HAVE to be there if they dont want to be so you just cant tell them what to do! And if you gave them an inch they took a mile,

But the days when everything fell into place and we actually finished the workshops we started or we got the point over we needed to make it was so rewarding!!

When I worked in a high school, I was physically threatened twice and one kid even squared up to me. Its no big deal, cause you know working in a school that you go down like Mike Tyson hit you, and that way the pupil will never return.
Working with the little ones is much more fun, they're really enthusiastic and willing to have a go!

Steph says:

Yes but surely "going down like Mike Tyson hit you" doesn't solve anything....shouldn't the fact that the pupils have no respect be addressed instead of letting them get away with it??

Paul says:

Yeah, thats true, but to be fair... when you meet the parents you see why they have no respect. They treat the school as "the enemy" when they should really learn no to have sex if they can't bring up a child!
