I can't be friends with teachers. When I was a student, I was afraid of the teachers. Since most of them were very strict. So I can't be friends with them. I haven't contacted any of them after graduation.

My teachers were very kind, the lay teachers, but the sisters, the nuns were not friends, very strict and mad all the time.

I am a teacher and my friends are also teachers. I never became friends with someone who was my teacher or with someone who was a student.

At first I thought it would be different overseas.

Why do you really need to? I would move on and remember what they taught you. I was lucky to have some very good ones. Mr. Merrick, Mrs. Donnelly, Mr. Schmaljohn, Mrs. Chase and Dr. Hanauer.

I think sometimes Chinese teachers don't have to be so strict to children.

That's okay. Many students are being friend by their teachers specially those popular and those who are not timid. Because they are the one whom their teacher can trust and has confident to delegate some task to them. But what important is no matter how close they are to others... they still has soft spot for every students they have and we are one of those. Just keep praying for them... that is the best way we can show our gratitude to them even if they don't know we are praying for them.

It sounds like that in your country students and teachers have a good relationship.

My son is friends with he's teachers outside of school but it's a different thing when they are inside the classroom, at least he knows how to balance.

It is great for your son to have such open-minded teachers.
