Lindsay Lohan started her 125 hours of community service at a Brooklyn daycare, and most people were cool with it.
Most people at Duffield Children's Center in Fort Green, Brooklyn don't care where help is coming from. Stuff needs to get done. That's why, when Lindsay Lohan finally showed up to finish her community service (she needs 125 more hours by the end of the month, or else face jail time), most of the school was happy.
Even the kids defended her. Then again, kids probably don't know what drunk driving is. To explain it to them, you'd have to spin them around a bunch of times and then make them ride a tricycle really fast, and say "Miss Lindsay did that for fun and now she's your teacher."
Though most welcomed her with open arms, the school did send out a warning to parents, informing them that the actress would be coming to watch their children. The note claimed that she would be under "constant supervision" like any other volunteer, which means (unfortunately for all of us hoping to see something weird happen) she won't be getting drunk in front of kids.
Nowhere in the letter did it say if the kids would all be forced to watch a screening of Liz & Dick. I'm guessing it will be shown if Lindsay comes in hungover.
Most of the parents seemed OK. One said: “Everybody has had their ups and downs and has had their trouble. I don't think she's terrible." Another said: "As long as she doesn't come here under the influence, I'm fine with it"
For a place that's famous for helicopter parents, Brooklyn sure seems to have a few who are willing to let any sober human watch their kids. Even one who's had multiple "problems."
