My little daughter started her kindergarten this fall, I heard many parents send gifts to the teachers. I don't like the idea of giving extra gifts because the school fee is already very expensive.However, it is related to my daughter, my husband said we shall not be mean. Now, the Mid-Autumn Day and the Teachers' Day are coming, Should  or shouldn't I buy gifts?

Chinese are like that, if you do not buy but if others buy, then the teachers would not pay more attention to your kid. Buy once ,not all the times.

Then these teachers should not be in the job, they are not proffesional.

What's the matter with the society now?
When I was a kid, my parents never buy teachers any gifts, I was doing just fine.
So things are changing now?
What would happen if you didn't flatter them?
Life is what you make of it

I see no reason why you should buy the teacher a gift. If the teacher is exceptional and you appreciate the job she has done, a gift would be appropriate at Spring festival,but you should not feel under any obligation to provide a gift. It could be misconstrued as bribery, and that is probably not a lesson you want to teach your child.

I never sent gift to my kid's teachers, and he is never neglected.
If you send gift to call teacher's attention to your daughter, then to other kids, that's unfair....
One thing that's truly hard to eradicate is the idea.
