I agree with the first person who answered you- if she keeps it up toss her out! She doesn't have to be there and your wife doesn't have to put up with her. She's being ridiculous. It sounds like she is insecure with her parenting skills and wants to blame anything that goes wrong in her mind on someone else- your wife just happened to be the scapegoat. When you have an entire classroom to control there is no way you can be expected to make sure every kid is wearing underwear, it's just not possible. Children should be supervised in the bathroom so you know they aren't playing in there but the teachers aren't going to physically inspect all of their butts! Lol. I would tell your wife to type up a newsletter telling parents that it is their responsibility to make sure their kid wears underwear each day! Surely the director realizes how stupid this lady is so it's not like your wife has anything to worry about. Just start documenting every incident with this child's mom- date, a description, etc. and have the director sign it so if it comes to kicking her child out the director will have some documentation to show her why. Anytime you work with kids you end up with a few crazies, try not to let them get to you. Good luck!=]
