Darla inherited the Barbie dream house…and her room is so pink I can barely stand to look at it.

Eww.

Thanks,

Me, with make-up

I’m usually running around with my hair in a bun, especially post “lice bonanza”, but this is me while Darla is away.

Ready for 1st grade

Darla has been assessed as “so ready for the first grade”, because she knows her sight woeds and basic math facts.

Dear Lifetouch and Fenton Charter and LAUSD

leave a comment »

To whom this may concern,

My child attends Fenton Charter in Pacoima CA. I specifically indicated that her picture was not to be taken. I DECLINED to have her portrait taken. I marked the form and signed it.

I am livid that her privacy was violated and my rights were over ridden in the name of profit (or any cause, really).

I only discovered that her photo had been taken when she came home with the $50 packet of portraits with instructions that I could either return the pictures or pay for them. Somehow I got locked into a contract that I did not ask for, nor did I agree to enjoin this transaction. You sent a $50 product home in the backpack of a six-year-old without my fore knowledge or permission and expect me to send cash back on her person in a gang infested and impoverished neighborhood.

Worse, you made a toy out of her picture and let her see it . I understand that from a business point of view this creates pressure on the parents to give you money because the child is now attached to the picture. That practice is egregious. It is especially offensive since I did not give my permission for her photo to be taken and printed and distributed in the first place.

Because the photos should never have been taken or developed, and I did not request them, and they came home and didn’t, I just tried them. I will not be paying for something I did not order or ask for.

Should you choose to pursue this, I will take legal action over my child violation of privacy. If you are desperate for your money that I suggest that you build a school. If this is not resolved to my satisfaction I will take it to the media and social media because this type of business practice is not ethical. It is not your best practice. It is something that needs to be reviewed, revisited, and revised.

I understand that from a business point of view this creates pressure on the parents to give you money because the child is now attached to the picture. It is emotional extortion and you are the source of the problem. That practice is egregious. It is especially offensive since I did not give my permission for her photo to be taken and printed and distributed in the first place.

Because the photos should never have been taken or developed, and I did not request them, and they came home and didn’t, I destroyed them. They should not exist.. I will not be paying for something I did not order or ask for.
