That was a tough one.
I had to chalk that one up to culture and inexperience. She is an Indian gal....I guess it is quite common for indian kids to address teachers as mom.
She was also very excited about this being her first class she has taught.
I was pretty diplomatic, expressing to her that I did not like the fact that she was encouraging them to call her as such. After she explained it to me, I believe that she was not encouraging them, it just sorta slips out from kids once in a while. She does have kind of a mommy complex, but after thinking about it some, I dont think that is very uncommon for Natives who spend a lot of time with other peoples children. It is very common for Indian women to raise other people's children....especially the old grandmothers.
Its a weird scene, but I guess its okay for now. I explained to my daughter that she was to address her teachers as Mrs or Mr....no exceptions.
