It’s a sad state…

Every Monday there always seems to be some residual effects from the weekend.  For my students, it’s usually something that happened that is not a good thing.  Today I overheard one student talking about how she’s going to live with her dad.  Everything will be so much better with her dad.

The sad reality is that dad is so far out of the picture that many times, going to live with dad never materializes.  I probed a little deeper and found out that dad is getting married and has recently been released from prison.  At this point I stop asking questions…

These kids just want a stable home life and a parent that loves them.  Is that too much to ask when someone chooses to have a child?
