Two years ago, a 13-year-old student me that he hadn't done his homework because he had to take care of his baby sister. I him because I knew he was an only child.
As I was fed up with his laziness and misbehaviour I his notebook and a message of complaint to his parents. Then I told him not to dare to come to the next English class without his mum's signature.
'But my mum is not at home,' he happily.
'Tell your dad to sign the note,' I .
'But neither of them is at home.'
Not wishing to continue that endless and useless discussion I told him plainly: 'Tell anyone who lives with you to read and sign this note!'
'OK, as you wish,' he and started smiling at me.
The next day I him to show me his notebook.
'Here you are!' he told me smiling again.
I opened it and a paw-shaped blot of ink instead of the required signature. He to me how he had dipped his cat's paw into the ink and put it on the sheet of paper. All the children started laughing and laughing and so I. Since then I have never ever told my students to have my notes of complaint to their parents signed by anyone who lives with them.
