Take my word for it

This has been the year of the parent that wants more details. Iím ready to scream.

I called a parent today. This is not the first time Iíve called this particular parent for similar reasons. Hereís how it went.
Me: Your son punched a girl in the stomach for no reason. In addition he has been making comments about certain students being in love with other students in our class. The students have asked him repeatedly to stop, but he refuses. In art he stole two paint brushes. The art teacher stated his behavior was disrupting the entire class.
Parent: I donít understand. Can you give me more details?
Me:Which part is it you need clarified?
Parent: All of it. I need more details.
Me: Your son punched a girl in the stomach.
Parent: Why?
Me: He said he did it for no reason.
Parent: Well, what else was going on? Did something happen to make him punch her? I need more details about the stealing the paint brushes. How can I get ahold of the art teacher? She needs to give me all of the details.

Why does everything have to be a long discussion? Canít you just take my word for it?

Okay, rant over. I feel better.
