Today, a parent came into my class and told one of my 6 year old students that their grandma died. Then the parent left. The kid started crying from the news, which then got all the other students crying. I spent the rest of the day comforting a class of kids crying over someone else's grandma. FML

Kids will cry over anything, although it sucks you have to deal with it. Sorry charlie. And how shitty of the mom to just come by tell the bad news and leave.

The kid's mom didn't take him/her home? Jeez.

Ah, the days before everyone started responding to #1.

i agree with #1. i don't see why a parent would come in during class to tell a 6 year old. that's pretty retarded :/

YDI for teaching kids who have grandmas

She didn't even put any tact or comfort either. She just said his gran is dead and left.

shouldnt you be prepared to handle crying children?

yeah um im sorry, Why is this an f YOUR life..? poor 6 year old, not understanding death.. I mean, consoling little crying kids isn't my favorite thing to do but I'd have to say let's think of others before ourselves here..

Considering that it started because of an idiot parent who could have waited until after school or taken the kid home with them, and it caused the rest of the class to begin crying which makes things even more difficult to handle, I think op has a right to complain

The kid's mom didn't take him/her home? Jeez.

God forbid children are sad. Life sucks because we have to comfort people. #4 yeah that's a very good point =/

THAT'S F*ED UP, ARE YOU EVEN SURE IT WAS A PARENT? COULD HAVE BEEN SOME A** OFF THE STREET THAT JUST GETS OFF ON MAKING KIDS CRY.

How completely insensitive of that kid's parent! Dude, I would have waited until he got home, or pulled him out for the day, one or the other.

Wow, what a parent

How is this an FML? It's good to make everyone feel good. It's cute how all the other kids cried over that, and it was nice of you to comfort all of them. This FML fails.

#3 - yes, but not an entire class-full of crying children. The mother should have been responsible and taken the child home or at least out of the school so they could deal with the news as a family. Poor kids!
