'I Am Disgusted': Mum Stunned To Find 'Horrible' Note From Son's Teacher In Lunchbox
When Francesca Easdon wrote a sweet note to her son, she didn't expect a horrible response from his teacher when he returned home.
The mother from Texas, had sent her son Kyler to the kindergarten with a thoughtful note in his lunchbox on Thursday.
“Please tell Kyler that his mommy loves him so much and I’m thinking about him," Francesca's note read.
But when her son returned home, a response had been written back from his teacher, reading: "No! Put him on a diet and go away!"
After finding the 'disgusting' response, Francesca posted a photo of the note to Facebook, after she said she had 'handled the situation' with the daycare centre.
"We have been working with Kyler on his eating, he’s extremely picky! I have been introducing new healthy options in his lunchbox and discussed the changes with his school," Francesca wrote along with a picture of the note.
The mum added she believes her son is 'absolutely perfect' the way he is, but is helping him make healthier choices about what he eats.
"Instead of his school being supportive I am in absolute shock at what happened. I sent this note in Kylers lunchbox, thinking that it would make him smile at lunch time, but instead, I received this in return from one of the teachers!" she added.
"Of course I was absolutely livid and immediately reached out to the school. First thing this morning I was at the school waiting on the director with my mother in law for a meeting. I was assured that it was being investigated and handled, yet almost no remorse was shown."
Francesca further brought the issue to the attention of his teachers through a public Facebook page, where she discovered a variety of other complaints from parents from the same daycare.
"The teacher that wrote this note confessed while I was at work and was fired, but nothing has been done about the other situations. Zero remorse for their actions," Francesca explained.
I am disgusted that I put my trust in these people to care for my child and this is what I get in return.
Francesca has since removed her son from the daycare and is enrolling him in a new facility.
"I’m worried about the higher cost but I will make it work, no matter what I have to do. Kyler’s safety and level of care comes first," she said.
Francesca left a warning for other parents to make sure they monitor their children's daycare closely and suggested they stay away from this facility in particular.
Friends and family of Francesca expressed their shock over the note, labelling the incident 'appalling'.
“I cannot believe a teacher would write something like this. It is appalling! Your son does not even the slightest bit need to be “put on a diet”. And even if he did, writing a note like that is immature, inappropriate and just ignorant,” wrote one.
You handled this so well. I can't believe a grown adult would act like this.
Francesca elaborated in the comments section, explaining that despite the 'horrible' incident, her son wasn't aware of what had happened.
“I just told him we are moving up to a better school and he’s excited,” Francesca said.
“I’m ready to put it behind us and get Kyler a fresh start.”
