Life As A Principal's Child

22

Life as a principal's child can sometimes be interesting and sometimes challenging. My father a strict man intoto weather on duty as a principal or not. None of his children or any of his wards he trained who doesn't bear one of his traits. My father as a principal has several times called his children out especially me on the assembly and beaten us just to make a point that what he can do to his children he can do same or less to other kids. I remembered one time when we were asked to inform our parents of our forthcoming PTA meeting and we didn't inform him with the motive that he is the principal making the anouncement why inform him again? Not knowing my father was waiting for the day after the PTA meeting. He called my sister and myself out in front of the whole school and he generously lashed out asses with a 2 by 2 plank before telling us our offence. He then proceeded to call out the rest and we cut the bigger part of the bush that was served to us. My sister and I served another punishment when we got home for disgracing him in public Since then I never hesitated to inform him of the minutest event in school cause no be me he go take do example next time. It was difficult for any of us as his children to prove that anything we got was based on our merit not favouritism as the principal child. We had to read extra hard even had to please some teachers and students to prove our merits. Though there was a time a test had to be taken again because I was among those who failed and my teachers knowing how hard my father frowns at failure in school. Everyone of us passed when we took the test again. The experience had it pros and cons but I never regretted experiencing such events cause they are one of the things that made me who I am today. If you had such experience or know of such experience experienced by someone feel free to share. Moderators make my post reach FP
