Over the years, I’ve had several testy conversations with a local
quack child psychologist. This quack doctor does a lot of school-bashing and loves to tell us all the things she thinks we are doing wrong. All this she does without us asking ever having set foot in our building.
Let’s get this straight. We don’t tell her how to treat her patients
though I have some ideas. She doesn’t need to tell us how to educate children especially when she makes ridiculous suggestions like for us to have beads strung across the base of the desk for a particular student to rub his feet on when ever he wants. Because that wouldn’t be distracting at all. And it would be oh, so sanitary.
Today, a parent came to see me because she wanted my help with her daughter who has been seeing this
quack doctor. I wanted to tell her to run like hell but I found I didn’t have to. This quack doctor had sent the mother a letter stating that the daughter had been diagnosed with Oppositional Defiant Disorder and there were some problems. Apparently, after a mere two weeks in therapy, this quack doctor had determined the child was “resistant to treatment” through her program and was being dismissed.
quack doctor rejected an oppositional child from her program for being… well… oppositional.
Am I being Punk’d?
