#46: Just Blame it on the Teacher
In a way, being late for school is worse than being late for a job. Teachers have only so many hours to work with the students, and it begins within seconds of those kids walking in the door each morning. Most classrooms spend the first five minutes going over a rundown of what material will be covered that day.
If your kid isn’t there, they are missing crucial information. Never mind that being late to school sets bad example and almost guarantees this kid will be late to work as an adult as well. Just get the kids to school on time, and if they struggle, get them help! Don’t blame the teacher. Trust me. They want your kid to succeed. Their jobs depend on it!
