So I run an after school program at a local sports club. Now many kids do not like my ways of running things, as I am unapologetically strict, and dont tolerate goofing off, confiscate unapproved snacks, and give the kids worksheets.
Now there is one kid who is disgruntled, and has a bad attitude with the program. One day when I went to pick the students up from school, I asked one of his classmates how this kid was. This classmate told me that this kid tells his sister that they should just walk home. So I told this kid “Shame on you, after all the sacrifices I make and take time out of my day to care for you”.
A few days later, this kids father tells me that I am in no position to be saying “Shame on you”. I explained why I did it, and he just tells me that what his son says to friends is none of my business, and that I am only there to do a job, and not her concern if his son is not a fan of her program.
