There is one school rule ,I will never break again.
Our son Arjun was studying in playschool.
His class teacher told that the school passed a rule that every student should wear uniform during week days.
Arjun was wearing his uniform regularly .But, he got bored of that dress. One day he asked me,"Mom, please,Let me wear my denims today." I tried to convince him. But, he insisted a lot.
So, he went to school in his new denim pants and his favourite T-shirt.
His class teacher was angry at him.
She removed his dress and put it on a Teddy Bear.
Arjun got embarrassed at that punishment.
There were thirty children in his class.He was standing with his underwear whole day.
He returned home with tears rolling down his cheeks.
As parents ,me and my husband , Srikar, felt very bad.
Srikar said," It's not an appropriate punishment."
I cried," Such a little child! Just three and half years old!"
Then ,Srikar said,"We must talk to the principal."
We both went to school immediately and complained to principal.
The principal apologized and promised us ," We won't repeat such punishments."
Rules should be helpful to children to learn but not to hurt them.
As parents ,we also decided not to break the school rule that will embarrass our child.
