It’s a timeless question: where do a school’s responsibilities begin, and where do they end?

This is especially important when you are wondering where to draw a dividing line between the responsibilities of the parent and a school’s.

A Portuguese school decided to solve the problem once and for all by sticking a poster in its halls – and the message they are sending now is spreading like wildfire.

The school’s sign was later shared on Facebook, where the message contained within it spread quickly around the world.

The simple but effective message highlights five key points determined by the school and should be managed by parents as follows:

“Dear parents

– We would like to remind you that magic words such as hello, please, you’re welcome, I’m sorry, and thank you, all begin to be learned at home.

– It’s also at home that children learn, to be honest, to be on time, diligent, show friends their sympathy, as well as show the utmost respect for their elders and all teachers.

– Home is where they learn to be clean, not talk with their mouths full, and how/where to properly dispose of garbage.

– Home is also where they learn to be organized, to take good care of their belongings, and that it’s not ok to touch others.

– Here at school, on the other hand, we teach language, math, history, geography, physics, sciences, and physical education. We only reinforce the education that children receive at home from their parents.

The online response has been immediate.

Do you think that schools in the US should be posting this in their hallways, too? Share if you agree that parents need to take responsibility for their children’s behavior!
