In a recent Twitter post, a mother from Melbourne said that her daughter’s daycare teacher had removed her child’s wobbly tooth despite her telling them to stop.
The mother, who goes by the name ThePomKat, was worried that this would affect her daughter’s body autonomy.
Kat’s protest was met with mixed reactions on Twitter, with some supporting her and others saying that she was overreacting.
The most important thing for Kat was that her daughter had a bonding experience after her tooth was removed.
We all remember the times when we tied a string around a loose tooth and slammed a door shut.
We also have memories of running into a lounge room after the tooth has fallen out, with blood pouring from our mouths.
These are the kinds of memories that are lost forever due to this teacher’s tooth-pulling.
Kat was able to confirm that her daughter got a miracle tooth, and she and her husband were thrilled by the story.
However, it raises the question of whether or not this teacher went beyond her responsibilities as a childcare provider.
