Is this a new thing?

I got an email from Monkey’s school this afternoon, its called a medical tracker and its to inform me that Monkey has fallen over and needed a plaster, they have detailed everything they have done.

When did this start happening? Surely the whole point of being at school, is that he gets injured, albiet not seriously, you get cuts, bumps, grazes etc, why do I need to know, unless its a bump to the head and I need to keep an eye.

Helpfully, at the bottom of the email it says if you want to talk to the school about this incident than you can ring the school office, I want to ring and ask them, what the hell I am meant to do with this information and do parents really go batshit, if they are not informed of every minor scratch

  1. They’re probably legally bound to inform parents of any incidents/accidents, Trina – all part of the new ‘Woke’ fad – plus – I’m sure there ARE some parents who really do go batshit unless informed – all part of the new(ish) entitlement movement that’s so prevalent nowadays ☹️

    I remember once in kindergarten falling off a climbing structure onto the concrete floor. I lay there crying, and eventually threw up. Pretty sure I had a concussion, and my parents never knew a thing. I think there’s a fine balance between letting parents know everything little thing and making sure that kids are healthy!

    I think it’s a legal thing to protect themselves… in case of batshit crazy parents.
