I recently had a horrible day with my 15 year old, Corey. Concerning attitude and school work.
Lindsey comes home and I begin telling him what happened. This is the conversation that takes place when Corey begins to get upset about us talking about it.
Corey, "We've already dealt with this. My dad chewed me out." (Corey is Lindsey's stepson.)
Lindsey, "We aren't talking to you right now. We are having a parent teacher conference."
Corey rolls eyes and smirks and says, "My Dad already talked to my mom."
Lindsey, "I'm meeting with your teacher on behalf of your mother."
Of course we all laughed, since I am both his teacher and his mother.
