Jeannie Crutchfield wasn't justified in treating her daughter, Ricci, the way she did.
Debate Rounds (3)
I believe that Jeannie Crutchfield's actions were unjustified and, if I am honest, childish. I believe that she doesn't appeal to her daughter's interests and can lead to bullying and other problems in the child's future. I believe that Jeannie Crutchfield doesn't act as a mother in this family by outing her daughter's problems publicly. She doesn't act a role model and puts her daughter off having the incentive to work. Crutchfield acts as a bully!
You can not admit we do not know and then make up your own speculation as to why she was ditching. I could just as easily suggest that What is "maybe" she was skipping school to have unprotected sex with her boyfriend? would you not agree that teen pregnancy is also a huge problem in children's lives these days? But these types of arguments hold no water which is why they are best avoided.
Bullying and Teasing are two different things, it is not inevitable that she will be bullied, though it is likely that she will be teased, she was caught there were consequences. I never said she would not do it again, merely that she may well think twice.
You say yourself that you are guessing.
"if I were treated like that by my Mother, I would run away from home forever" Such a ridiculous statement, life is harder than you are aware.
Although speculation can vary, the parent attacked Ricci like a bully regardless, whether Ricci was schiving for reasons like to 'smoke pot' or for reasons like bullying. A normal parent wouldn't surge through the school and chant after her daughter. It is morally wrong and doesn't help her child's cause. 'Teasing' and 'bullying' are basically the same in today's society, as some children can't deal with negative energy whether it is from acquantance peers or friends, either way if they are uncomfortable with it, it should be eradicated. Although, yes, I was a little ridiculous with "I would run away from home forever", I believe that if your family isn't there to support you with your problems and needs, why should you continue being part of it? Especially when, in some conditions, you could do a lot better without such bad parenting.
You stated, "A normal parent wouldn't surge through the school and chant after her daughter." to this I say there is no such thing as a normal parent. I would go a step further and say good for her mother, at least she cares enough about her daughter to get involved, I do not feel she was doing it to be malicious, I think that this is an example of a mother teaching her daughter one of life's great lessons, that there are consequences for your actions. Your profile states that you are 22 years old though I find that very hard to believe based on your responses in this debate, and that the only other debate you are in is over whether Minecraft or Roblox is a better game. I am not saying that she is Mother of the Year, but she clearly cares about her child, even if she has a funny way of showing it.
