I’m sure by now many of you have heard about the 6 year old girl here in Naples who has been charged with a felony for kicking a teacher’s aide. The good news is that the charges have been dropped. But I just gotta ask… how would you like to be Debra Dolan today? That is the aide who, after being kicked, actually informed the school officials that she wanted to press charges. How much ridicule are you facing today, Debra? I mean, isn’t an adult pressing charges for being kicked by a six year old girl sort of like this guy calling these guys to get help beating up this guy!
Yes, Ms. Dolan (and I fairly sure it is Ms.), little Takovia Allen was wrong to kick you, and yes she should be punished (it was usually a switch from a Willow tree or an occasional paddle-ball paddle for me, but a belt will work just as well). But as a teacher’s aide – and in a special needs class, no less – if you can’t handle a difficult kid or getting kicked in the shin without calling the cops, I think you not only need find a new line of work, you need to get a life!
