My daughter is in Year 7 and she came home upset last week after her teacher told the class that Santa, the Easter Bunny etc aren’t real. She was heartbroken and I was furious. Apparently, other kids in the class were visibly upset. According to my daughter, the teacher told the students, ‘Sorry if I ruined your childhoods.’ Not sure if it matters or not, but he doesn’t have any children.
So I called the school principal and reported the teacher, who assured me the teacher would be ‘dealt with’.
When my husband came home and I told him, he said I shouldn’t have reported the teacher and it was a ridiculous thing to get upset over.
I completely disagree – we kept this magic going for the past 12 years, and this teacher ruined it! So tell me, am I wrong for reporting the teacher?
