    This year I have a parent who comes to help with Lunch duty. She comes on tuesdays and thursdays. It was great at first but she started bringing treats everyday and handing them out without consulting me first. The kids behaviour does not always constitute a reward. She has become buddy buddy with all of my students and the students don't want her to leave. It is disruptive when I am trying to go on with our day. Also she came to me gossiping how the first grade teachers supposedly can't teach. In a round about way I told her I am not going to listen to that gossip. We have awesome First Grade teachers. This parents leaves voicemails that go on and on and they don't hardly ever have to do with her child. Any suggestions? She is a stay at home Mom. I know how busy stay at home Mom's are and how hard they work but she seems like she is bored and needy. Any advice on how to handle her in a kind manner? I work at a christian school.
