    I hate to generalize and more importantly make myself stand out and feel old, however, there is definitely a difference in parenting now than since I was a student (I'm in my early 40's). In the 21st century, parents do what's easier for them. It seems that in order to avoid, confrontations, disappointing their children, having to be consistent with discipline, etc. parents will react adversely to teachers and administrators who are desperately trying to teach these children well in order to make the world a better place. It is tiring and frustrating but we must keep on keeping on. It's our job and that's why we entered the profession in the first place...to Make A Difference! Sorry I have no advice, but I completely empathize with you and felt your pain. It ain't easy.
