Some childish parents!

How different parents are!
A generally bright student scored a little less at a class test in a Dubai school. As is the practice, the teacher asked the girl to get her parent’s signature.
The girl returned the sheet the next day. The teacher was shocked to see a comment “very poor performance” written by the dad.
After another test, the same girl was asked about the signature from the dad.
“Don’t ask me, ma’am,” came the reply.
“What happened?”
“He just tore the paper to pieces.” With these words, the girl started crying and the teacher had to pacify her.
What a discouraging dad!
The other extreme is this mom.
“Oh, my son. He tops the class always, but he is so naughty.”
“Good boy,” I hugged him.
The monkey who tops class did not smile. Instead, he took out a toy pistol and pressed the trigger. My face was covered with coloured water.
I thought the mom would admonish the child, but she slapped a kiss on his cheek, saying, “Don’t do that to uncle. Say sorry.”
Sorry? The monster was already punching me.
Two blunders of this mom: 1. Condoning the monkey’s mischief. 2. Calling me “Uncle.”
Damn it.

  1. haha.. i think you're more annoyed about being "uncle-d" rather than getting sprayed by the mean kid. it's annoying when kids are behaving bad and their parents find it oh-so adorable. my foot! i have several such pranksters for second-degree nieces and nephews whom i wish would stop trampling all over my diwan and my house. agh! but if only the parents saw the light!

  4. Ha ha ... such a naughty behaviour is overlooked by some parents who pamper their children too much.
    All Orientals expect their children to be toppers in every field...this is not a right attitude...every individual has his limitations.

  7. Hilarious though, SOME parents, pamper their kids or threaten their kids, they never know how and when to strike a fine balance between the two.

  11. Sounds like this particular naughty boy didn't know when to stop and certainly didn't realise when he'd overstepped the mark.

  12. These days some of the parents have become unreasonably demanding.
