Along with parents, one person who plays a critical role in our future success is our teachers. While there are some teachers, who leave no stone unturned in building kids with their positivity and encouragement, there are some who shatter them with their negativity and shaming tactics.
It is sad how even in 21st century, some teachers still fail to understand how their behavior impacts the impressionable young minds. They still indulge in the abusive behaviors like scolding, shaming or punishing as they still regard these negative behaviors as motivators. Dear teachers, shaming or scolding isn’t motivating; Kindness and inspiration are.
Recently, a student took to Twitter to share a screenshot of her conversation with one of her teachers who allegedly shamed and insulted her and announced that she could never make it.
This student concluded the powerful message with “Next time, please remember to be kind towards people. Especially students who seek for you help.”
Several people could relate to this teacher’s abusive behavior and shared their personal childhood stories:
When I was 5 yrs old I couldn’t speak. Due to a health condition for 3 yrs. I was beaten in my convent school everyday because they thought I’m shy and wouldn’t read. I became a teacher myself so children who were like me would never feel disgraced and humiliated. I understand ❤️
Being honest I was humiliated and bullied whole childhood eith with classmates or with teachers now current situation is I have completed my grad with good university and have agood job from reknown company. But my childhood trauma keeps on coming in-between my present life.
This made my day lol,. My cs teacher said i would not pass, and i will not go into any deemed Universities. I got into a top University and cs is one of my main courses with the highest grade. Gotta text him 😂✌️
I too had the same moments There was one teacher who did not believed in me the whole class used to think I am dumb but little they know I not even topped in that particular class but even surpassed the other class sections . Its one of the moment I want to live again
My physics teacher in class 11 and 12 always used to degrade me because I was not from English medium. He said I will not clear even a single subject. I have cleared with decent score and I stood infront of him. He never even looked at my face 🤣
It is quite sad how we justify abusive behavior in name of motivation. Be it teachers or parents, no one has a right to abuse kids to push them to achieve milestones. It is high time that parents and teachers understand that abusive behavior is abuse, not motivation! What do you think about this incident? Tell us in the comments below.
