Daily Prompt – “School is the new parents”

Daily Prompt – School is the new parents.

How true is this, when you leave home as a child to go to school for the first time, the adults in the school take over the role as parents, attending to all your needs.

For 16 years I worked as a social care worker in a residential school for boys with behavior and social problems. Because the school was residential, the boys stayed over for the week and went home at weekends, we were like parents to them. Now a lot of the boys I worked with have grown up, some keep in touch and have commented on how the adults in the school influenced their life’s in a positive manner.
