1 Answer | Asked in Child Custody for Pennsylvania on

Q: Is it okay for a teacher to tell student not to listen to his parents

Peter N. Munsing answered on May 13, 2019

If the parents are saying don't study, yes, though I would word it differently. It matters what it's about and the context it would happen in. Chances are a lot was left out of what was filtered back. Why not set down with the teacher, get their side.

Peter N. Munsing answered on May 13, 2019

If there is insurance on your sister's car then she needs to report it to them. That's what the insurance is for--many people feel their injuries later. To your sister it's a bump. I bet if it happened to her she'd be saying it was a CRASH... You said "our insurance." They are pros, let them handle... Read more »
