I've had all thumbs days with sewing (and I have been sewing for well over 20 years) and I have to say that they do suck. I have been known to lecture my sewing machine now and then but it always seems to smarten up and behave after a "you will be replaced" kind of chat.

Hope you were able to relax and that your sewing went well after the vent!

I am astounded that folks seem to want to rip into Mackenzie Phillips for disrupting their family. Wow. What about the abuser? She survived, and to be questioned, blamed, etc, is unbelievable. people seem to think that just because the "relationship" happened when she was an adult, that it is somehow different. Wrong. Her abuser groomed her for years to be compliant. The word "consensual" has a very different meaning in this context. I support Mackenzie Phillips and her decision to finally end her nightmare by going public. Quite frankly, this week she has appeared more lucid and "with it" than ever before, possibly because she can now hold her head high and shake free of the shame.
And to he*# with her so-called step-mother Michelle. Can't she see the truth? After all, she was a child (16) when she got involved with John... maybe the truth is just too close...

a boy was saying crude sexual things to my daughter then tried to grab my daughters breast, she managed to elude him and screamed at him and threw her peas off her lunch tray at him, when she got up and walked away he tried to grab her butt!! when she went to tell an aid in the lunch room she was told not to tattle!! so she went to the principle to report it. he didn't call me till after school and when i asked what was going to be done about this sexual harassment he said he couldn't talk to me about it or give me the kids name!! that is just wrong because as the parent of the minor child being harassed i am entitled to know everything. i am thinking of going to the police an file a complaint. if i wasn't involved i would understand the confidentiality thing.

when i tried to ask some more questions he said it was late and he didn't want to debate. i didn't like his tone at all and the sense that he just wanted to go home because it was late!! to freaking bad buddy i pay his salary his is paid to talk to me when there is a serious problem like this!! in my eyes this is serious. do you think so?
i have a right to be livid!!

Yes, you have the right to be livid. You also have the right to report it to the police. make sure you have written everything down (like you did here), and tell your daughter to write everything down as well. Then, take your documents into the school in the morning and demand action. They MUST do something about it. It's called sexual harassment and is recognized as such by federal law. period. If anything else is said or done, have your daughter DOCUMENT, tell you , and YOU also document the behaviors as told to you by your daughter.

and it's NOT a debate.
I just took a test today to become a sub (yes, even after a master's and working in the district) but, one of the questions addresses this. In the case where a teacher suspects abuse of any kind, the teacher is to report their suspicions to law enforcement. again, federal law. Not the principal, but the police.
