When you’re a mother, your top priority is always going to be your child. That’s just the nature of it. Mothers are still making sure that their children are fine and doing well. Of course, it’s also the mothers’ responsibility to feed their children well and nourish them with good food. However, this mother, who prepared lunch for her son, happily opened the lunchbox knowing that her son ate well, and got quite shocked when she saw the note she left for him. There was another note written. She’s pretty sure she wasn’t the one who wrote it.

She Always Tried Her Best

After seeing and reading the unfamiliar note written, she was not able to stop herself from being angry. She knew someone else did it, and she would not let the responsible person get away with it. It is something that needs to be addressed. With the anger that she’s feeling towards the person responsible, she can’t stop and just let it pass. She most likely would like the person to receive a punishment for this note that was written in her son’s lunchbox.

Like Tug Of War

The mother, whose name is Francesca Easdon and lives in Texas, knows how hard it is to raise a kid. Especially when it comes to food that you want them to eat. It is not always an easy task since not every meal will capture their taste bud’s interest. You’re lucky if you have children who eat anything you want them to eat, but that rarely happens. Francesca is one of the unlucky ones. His son, Kyler, developed extreme eating habits that started with his refusal to eat green vegetables.

They Reached A Compromise

It did not take long when the little boy’s list of disliked foods got longer and longer. This worried mother, Francesca, something’s not right, and it is now very alarming. Aside from the fact that she is having a hard time feeding Kyler during dinner time, she is starting to notice that her son is beginning to pack on extra weight. She can tell that his refusal to eat the food she wanted him to eat is going too far already.

Trying To Encourage Him

Francesca’s battle with her son’s eating habits is experienced also by other mothers out there. It is not an easy task, especially when you are dealing with a kid. It is indeed a hard task for her every night, trying to feed Kyler with the food she prepared for him, only to be rejected. However, the more she forces Kyler into eating the food in front of him, the more her son refuses to do so. She was losing hope.

She Put Love Into His Lunch

However hard it is for Francesca to feed her little son every night, she knew she just couldn’t give up and lose the battle. It is for her son’s sake. She just can’t let it be that way. So she did what every loving and caring mother would do, she researched new tactics since bribing him no longer works. She compromised with Kyler and started to change a little something in the food she prepares for his lunch. She’s reintroducing healthy choices in his lunchbox.

A Small And Sweet Favor

Knowing her son’s developed eating habits, Francesca knew that his son’s daycare could be of help. Her continued effort to help her son eat healthier is already doing great. However, she knows she can still do something better about it. She then discussed her son’s eating habits with the daycare her son’s currently enrolled in at that time, the Rocking Horse Kingwood. After the private discussion between them, it seemed that the staff in the daycare understood the situation she and her son were in.

She Did Not Expect The Reply

Francesca, after the discussion she had with the staff of the Rocking Horse Kingwood, expected that they did understand their situation. However, it turned out that maybe, they did not at all. What happened next was something she did not expect at all. She did not know it was going to backfire quite terribly. Francesca writes a small encouragement note every day and puts it in her son’s lunchbox. It is just a little something to brighten up his son’s day.

Going From Despair To Fury

Francesca opted to change her son’s meal options during his lunchtime. She added healthier food in his lunchbox. She replaced crisps and Twinkies with much more nutritious food like some egg salad sandwich and carrot fingers. If you think about it, it is quite a big transition of course for the kid. The notes being put in his lunchbox is Francesca’s way of attempting to make up for the meal rotation she’s doing for him. That’s just sweet!

Time To Get Revenge

Nothing is more fulfilling for Francesca other than the fact that all her efforts are already making progress. Everything is just getting better, and it is because of the unending love of this mother to her son. It may have taken long before seeing the development, but it was all worth it. However, it seemed like Francesca’s being tested yet again. All her efforts went down the drain only because of one rude teacher. All the work that Francesca did was put into waste.

A Personal Attack On Him

As part of Francesca’s daily routine, she prepares her son’s food and lunchbox the night before the day of school. She’s putting a lot of effort into developing it. It is not just an ordinary lunchbox; it was made with mother’s love. She always makes sure that the food she’s preparing for her son is colorful and looks enticing enough for him to be enthusiastic and savor it all up. It is not just beautiful to look at but also healthy!

She Did Her Homework

It was just a typical day both for Francesca and Kyler. Little did Francesca know, it is going to be a terrible one. She was only a few hours away from having her day ruined by one rude teacher. She prepared Kyler’s food the previous night. The lunchbox consisted of a wholegrain ham sandwich, apple slices, and cherry tomatoes. Francesca realized that it was already the middle of the week and thought of giving Kyler a little treat. Just one small gift for the week won’t probably hurt.

The Post Went Viral

As we have mentioned earlier, every day, Francesca is putting some encouragement notes in his lunchbox as a little payoff for losing his daily treats. It was not much, but it will brighten up her son’s day. On that day, she wrote on a small piece of paper, “Please tell Kyler that his mommy loves him so much, and I’m thinking about him.” It was just a tiny effort, yet one of the sweetest gestures a parent can do to their kids.

Finding Inappropriate Content

It was just a simple request. She is just one of the caring mothers who wanted their children to feel loved at all times, even when they are not together. It will only take a small effort to make someone else’s day a whole lot better. However, Kyler’s teacher was not cooperative that day. The note left by Francesca was supposed to be read by Kyler’s teacher during lunchtime. Francesca did not think that the letter would cause something else.

It was a typical day for Francesca. Sending off her son to daycare, Kyler carrying the lunchbox she prepared the night before, made with and full of love. Her son got home, and she noticed something strange about his behavior. It felt like he wasn’t himself as he was less talkative than he is. Francesca did not make a big deal out of it and just shrugged it off. She didn’t think that the little note would trigger such a response from her son’s teacher.

They Showed No Remorse

Francesca opened the lunchbox. It was only that time that she saw the reply on the note she had written purposely to brighten up her son’s day at the daycare. She could not believe what she read. She kept on rereading those thick black lines and trying to let it sink in her mind. She did not expect it to happen, especially coming from the teacher of her son, who should be the first one to understand her and Kyler’s situation. Twa’s indeed terrible and shocking.

A Summary Of The Situation

Francesca could not believe what she just read. What did the teacher’s reply to her note mean? Was she just thinking way ahead, or is it the way she thinks it is? Is she being accused by her son’s teacher? She read it carefully multiple times to make sure she read it right. Eventually, she understood what it meant. It finally sank in. She’s feeling different emotions all at once—shame, humiliation and incredulousness.

She Was Totally Livid

Feeling all shamed and humiliated, Francesca realized that she just couldn’t let this pass. Reading the note made her mad and anger started to consume her mind and body. Yet, she made herself calm and plotted what she could do next. It was no question if she wanted to have the teacher fired from Rocking Horse Kingwood. It was her goal now. Now, she just needed to come up with a plan on how to make it happen. She definitely won’t let her get away with this!

Francesca posted a photo of the note with the reply of her son’s teacher on Facebook. It did not take long when the post went viral and gained massive attention from parents all over the world. They also expressed their disgust at the teacher’s response to the note. Of course, as a parent, you can feel what Francesca was feeling then.

Everything For Her Little Boy

Francesca posting the photo of the note on Facebook and afterwhile went viral, definitely gave the management of the daycare something to be busy about. People that commented on Francesca’s posted photo not only went for the teacher who wrote the note but also the daycare that Kyler’s currently enrolled in. Will the Rocking Horse Kingwood Elementary School recover from the mess? However, Francesca just doesn’t stop there. She needed to do something more than just to let people know what happened.

Ready

We have mentioned a lot of times about the response of Kyler’s teacher on Francesca’s note, but we haven’t told you what it said. Are you ready to know? For those who already have kids, you would probably understand why Francesca and other people who saw the note reacted that way. “No! Put him on a diet and go away!”, this was the response of Kyler’s teacher to Francesca’s lovely note. What can you say about it?

The Refusal

For Francesca, it was not only about the refusal of the horrible teacher to her request but also the attack she did to her son, saying he needs to go on a diet. It was a personal attack, and she just can’t let that woman get away with it. Every parent would probably feel the same way Francesca was sensing when all of this was happening. If it’s about your kid, you just won’t step back even if it’s unlikely for you to do so.

Too Much

It is not in Francesca’s nature to mind others’ business. That’s just not her. However, what just happened to her and her son was just too much for her to just sit back and let it pass after doing what she did. She knew it was not enough and so she did a little digging into the teacher’s Facebook profile, and luckily, it was set in public. She was able to do some of the posts of the teacher.

Francesca, going on FBI mode with all the digging she is doing in the terrible teacher’s Facebook profiles, she did not expect to find anything much. However, to her surprise, she just won the jackpot! Her digging paid off right away, and with the information, she has about the teacher right now is most likely enough to make her case. We told you, she just would not sit back and let that teacher get away with it! Finally, she can now execute her plan.

Reactions

Francesca felt the need to do more than to let people know what happened and how the Rocking Horse Kingwood handles the situation. It is not like her post on Facebook was not enough. Her post already reached two thousand reactions and one thousand shares! In just a short time, her post went viral. Many people agreed on how rude and immature Kyler’s teacher is. Her behavior indeed shocked a lot of people.

Body Shaming

As we have mentioned, over 2,000 people reacted to the photo that Francesca uploaded. As some people expressed their disgust on the response written by the teacher, some also thought about it thoroughly and considered it as a form of body shaming. Body shaming is one of the common problems in society right now. What would you feel if the victim of a body-shaming incident is a mere 5-year-old kid? Let’s now find out what Francesca saw on the teacher’s profile.

Personal Account

Francesca, digging on the teacher’s Facebook profile, was indeed a perfect idea. It made her know the real character of the teacher and got a bit of preview of who she is as a person. Francesca found multiple posts with inappropriate contents. One of those was about substance use. With this information that she newly found, her anger built up more. How can school management hire a teacher with such a character? Notably, she’s handling kids and not adults.

Set Up A Meeting

What Francesca saw on the Facebook profile of her son’s teacher triggered her to set up an appointment with the director of the Rocking Horse Kingwood. With the note as evidence of the involved teacher’s immaturity and unprofessionalism, she added the Facebooks posts that she saw online. If you know the teacher of your kids posting about substance use, would you be at ease that your kids will be safe under their care? We bet not! The question now is, whose side will the school go for?

The Director

When the meeting with the daycare’s director ended, she turned to Facebook and gave an update to what just happened and how the meeting went down. She is not probably friends or connected with all those who reacted or shared her post yet somehow; she thought she needed to give an update. “I was assured that it was being investigated and handled, yet almost no remorse was shown,” she said.

The Public Page

“I also brought to their attention the fact that on his teacher’s public Facebook page there were mass posts regarding drug use and other very inappropriate content,” she added on her Facebook post. It is indeed alarming to see that the person responsible for keeping your son educated, safe, and well taken care of is actually into drug usage and, etc. The posts about drug usage alone should be dreadful enough.

Confessed

She also added this statement to her post “The teacher that wrote this note confessed while I was at work and was fired, but nothing has been done about the other situations,”. Also, this, “Zero remorse for their actions.” If you read her post, it seemed like Rocking Horse Kingwood showed not enough care with her complaint. It feels like it is not entirely of a big deal; they can just fire her to eliminate the problem then go back to normal as nothing happened.

Disgusted

“I am disgusted that I put my trust in these people to care for my child, and this is what I get in return. I have removed Kyler from this daycare and am enrolling him in a beautiful new facility,” she added. Almost all parents, after experiencing what Francesca had experienced, would probably transfer their kids to a different school. What’s the point of letting your kids stay there after knowing their incompetence and their true colors?

Unaware

The people who saw the Facebook post must have stayed tuned for her updates. It is interesting enough to follow the story and be able to know what would happen next. She’s also giving inspiration to others to step up for their children at times like that because who else would stand up for their kids? Some readers do not exactly know what happened, so Francesca decided to add its backstory: “We have been working with Kyler on his eating, he’s extremely picky!”

Perfect

“I have been introducing new healthy options in his lunchbox and discussed the changes with his school. And for the record, I feel that Kyler is perfect the way he is, I’m just helping him make healthier choices,” she said. There are no parents in this world who wish to harm their children. Francesca only did what she thought would be better for her son, Kyler.

Being Supportive

“Instead of his school being supportive, I am in absolute shock at what happened.” “I sent this note in Kyler’s lunchbox, thinking that it would make him smile at lunchtime, but instead, I received this in return from one of the teachers!” she added to her post. It was indeed shocking to receive such a response, especially from the teacher of her son, whom she expected to be the first one to understand the situation they were in.

Absolutely Livid

Of course, I was livid and immediately reached out to the school,” she mentioned. The involved teacher in this incident got fired. Francesca’s family and Facebook followers were glad about the outcome of her efforts to put the teacher in her right place. It takes a healthy heart to go against someone when you don’t know what can happen next, especially knowing the teacher’s real character. There are other things that Francesca is worried about.

“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,” Commented by a user who read the story of Francesca and the teacher. Who does not agree to what the user said? None, we suppose.

Sympathy

Another user also said, “I can not believe someone wrote this!! I am so sorry that you have gone through this. And I will certainly tell everyone I know about this experience.” This just explains and describes how horrible that teacher is. Francesca is receiving sympathy from different persons from all over the online world.

“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. Sorry for the long post, but I feel it’s so important to share this,” she added to her post to let everyone know. Her story’s indeed worth telling and noteworthy to share with other people. From the way she handled Kyler and his eating habits down to her standing up for her son, without any backup. Many parents will learn from her too.

Hands-On

“I’m extremely hands-on with my child’s care and still didn’t see this coming. Monitor your daycares closely and stay away from this facility; they do NOT deserve the privilege of teaching our children,” she said. This is quite true. Some parents often neglect to check what kind of daycare they’re enrolling their children at. We guess, now, parents who read Francesca’s post, would probably be extra careful in choosing daycares for their kids.
