Texas Mother Appalled That Son Urinated on Himself Because He Didn't Have Enough "Money" to Pay Teacher for Bathroom Break!
"I was absolutely appalled," Sonja Cross told NBC 5. "I could not believe it."
The J.O. Davis Elementary teacher requires students to pay for trips to the toilet with “Boyd Bucks,” fake money the first-year instructor uses to reward the children for good behavior.
Cross said she found out about the unusual system after her son wet his pants during school because he didn’t have enough “Boyd Bucks” for a bathroom run.
“He tried to hold it as much as he could, but he just couldn’t," she explained. “Really, that's just unhealthy.” Her young son came home crying because his fellow classmates started teasing him, prompting Cross to demand the teacher end the reward system.
“Originally, when I first spoke with the teacher, she was just going to show my son special treatment, but then I said, ‘That's just not good enough. I need for you to stop this for all the children,’” she said.
Cross spoke to administrators at the Dallas-area school who told the unidentified teacher to do away with the system – for bathroom trips, at least.
