(KAIT/ABC) -

One frustrated Texas middle school teacher has had enough.

Julie Marburger was so fed up with bad behavior that she vented on social media.

She took to Facebook with a big message on March 28, saying "people absolutely have to stop coddling and enabling their children. It will not serve them towards a successful and happy life."

Two weeks later, the post had been shared over 400,000 times. 

The 45-year-old never expected to get so much attention.

"Teachers get treated so disrespectfully from all sides," wrote Marburger. "Parents have become far too disrespectful, and their children are even worse."

She had considered resignation after this year but might stay thanks to support from parents, teachers and her administration.
