A 43-year-old woman is charged with helping her daughter and two other teenage girls bake cookies laced with a laxative that were then given to a teacher.

Julie Hunt appeared in Skowhegan District Court on Monday and pleaded innocent to a charge of misdemeanor assault.

I thought parents are suppose to set a good example for their children and teach them the ways of right and wrong..

My aunt used to take her kids to go toilet paper houses (nothing nasty or damaging just TP), but I couldn't imagine having a parent or being a parent and encouraging destructive behavior in children. Kids these days need to learn good, harmless fun and be taught how to respect others. We are too sensitive AND disrespectful these days....

Not to mention that during the adolescent years children generally are developing their brain's ability to make informative decisions (i.e., learn about actions vs. consequences).

I think it's sort of funny. I've done worse things than that to a couple of my teachers, but my mother was not involved (nor did she teach me to be so sinister; I learned that all on my own)
Maybe the teacher was a total knob and they just wanted to settle the score a little. <shrugs> It sucks that a couple students got flushed into the deal though.

<--- naughty kid, who will try not to raise a naughty kid of my own.

First rule of teaching:

Never trust students who give you gifts.

Second rule of teaching:

Never share those gifts with other students.

Meh. I'm sick of teaching anyway.

I am sick of teaching too. I want a real job, with real people. :mad: End of rant.

Anyway, last month a whole class brought a cake for my birthday to class.
It was a real nice of their part, I did not get sick nor any of the other students.

Next time around I am going to think twice before I eat anything from a student tough.:rolleyes:

Now I' afraid to tell my (future) children about all sorts of fun and silly pranks. I wouldn't have had a problem with the mom if all she did was tell her kid about the prank. Can you imagine what would have happened if she had suggested methelyne blue?

This is almost as bad as the girl who got suspended for telling her friend the lyrics to On Top of Old Smokey...

I really really really hate a lot of people. I would so love to destroy their lives...
