The majority of people, when they hear what happened to Sophie and that it happened on the pre-school's watch, have the same reaction. Anger. Shock. The teachers most be grossly irresponsible.
Hold on. Wait. Back up a minute. The same thing could have very easily have happened on my watch. Kids fall, kids have accidents. And that is just what happened to Sophie. An accident. Regardless of where it happens- an accident is an accident.
The same people are even more surprised that I haven't marched down to the school and yelled at the principal and teachers. But, what benefit would that serve? I hold no ill feelings towards the school or the teachers and Sophie can't wait to go back.
If the same thing happened to your child, what would your reaction be? Are they over-reacting? Am I under-reacting? Please, comment away.
