The Top Ten Most Outrageous True Comments by Parents

Whether at open house or during impromptu private meetings in the line of the grocery store, parents can say the most outrageous things. Blaming teachers for their child's mistakes or simply speaking negatively about their own children, sometimes parents can be totally baffling. Here are the top ten outrageous comments from parents.

Number 10

A vice-principal was shocked when a parent looked menacingly at their child, pointed toward the principal and yelled, “Bobbie, don’t ever tell her the truth again!”

Number 09

A former student returned with her child who now attended the same school and stated to an older teacher, “Are you still teaching? I thought you would be dead by now!”

Number 08

After several attempts to reach a parent by phone, the mother wrote a note to the teacher that said, “I just told him, ‘if he doesn’t start acting right, I was going to call you back.’”

Number 07

After sending home a progress report with all of the student’s grades on it, (a student who often slept and did little work) a parent wrote “WTF” next to the zeroes his child had on all of his homework assignments.

Number 06

One year, an odd parent entered a meeting with her newborn baby. She immediately started breastfeeding her child and declared, “Just want y’all to know I may be a little off today. I’m off my medication because I’m breastfeeding.”

Number 05

In response to a suggestion that a parent’s daughter could turn in test corrections for half credit, the father screamed, "Who the @#&% do you think you are? All you rich teachers up here talking trash about our kids and stealing my money. You don't do a @#&% thing and that's why this country has gone to @#&%."

Number 04

After a very tough meeting with a parent, they ended the meeting with, “You may think you are qualified to teach my child, but that does not make it true.”

Number 03

During a parent conference, the student was asked what her post-graduation employment plans were. Both mother and daughter responded enthusiastically that the plans were for her to work at a strip club in Houston as well as in other parts of the adult entertainment industry. The mother stated that had been her career since her high school graduation and she wanted the same success for her daughter.

Number 02

In the front office with the secretary, an irate mother said, "I'm here because my daughter didn't answer any of my texts to her." The secretary explained that students were not to have their phones on and that our school had an “Off and Away” policy. The mother shot back, “Not between classes.”

Number 01

Our school has those plastic infant simulators in child development classes. At night they must be fed and held, or they will cry all night. Nonetheless, they are fake babies made out of plastic. One year a student “killed” her baby; i.e. it was shut down from being abused too many times. The mother called and complained that the teacher accused her daughter of murdering a real child! The mother kept the teacher on the phone for 45 minutes with the mother continuing to argue with the teacher that, “my daughter CANNOT go to jail for murdering a baby!”

There you have it, the most outrageous comments by parents ever. I'm sure you've heard a few yourself, or like me, as a parent of a teenager, I've made some pretty outrageous comments myself!

      I called a parent to tell her that her daughter had a bad attitude. The mother responded, "I heard you have a bad attitude too!"
