Mother gets teacher fired over diabetic daughter's snacks 🍎

A mother's protective instincts for her child can be a powerful force. This was the case for one mother whose daughter has type 1 diabetes and requires snacks in class to manage her condition. After a teacher denied her daughter a snack during a hypoglycemic episode, the mother took action and reminded the teacher of her daughter's legal accommodations.

When the incident happened again, the mother brought the issue to the principal, and the teacher was ultimately fired for ADA violations. While the mother may have been acting in the best interest of her child, the fallout from the situation has left her questioning whether she went too far.

Was she justified in her actions or was she being an entitled parent? Read on to find out what Redditors have to say about this controversial situation.

NTA. Teacher endangered daughter's life and violated ADA, deserved firing.
