The only reason that i am going to do thing anonymously is that i do not want to add to the issue in case there are parents here that live here....... My son was called a rapist today. The thing that happened was that my 13 year old and others were playing basketball here at home and a young lady (10) came later and began to play also. While playing she held the ball to her chest and was guarding it with her arms. My son reached in and grabbed the ball and in doing that brushed her breast area. Well she ran to dad and told him that my son grabbed her breast. I have no issue with a dad protecting his daughter BUT he told my son in front of me i don't care what you have to say..... Now the big brother went to school and began to spread this rumor and call my son a rapist. Ok YES the school knows and its being handled BUT during my conversation with the Principal he told me that calling my son that was not a offense that was punishable by expulsion. I did not ask for that i just wanted the rumor to stop. It just got me thinking rape is a HORRIBLE and VICIOUS attack against someone. Should that not be treated as such? Should the other child at LEAST be expected to apologize and make a statement to his peers that this was wrong?( There are 4 adults that back my son up) When did this word become so misused that its "oh its not that bad" to call someone?Answer Question

Both the principal and the dad are wrong. I would never allow my daughter to be the only girl playing with a bunch of boys. Did your son apologize for the accidental touching? It seems it really gotten blown out of proportion. I would try to meet with the parents of this child and try to settle this. You don't want this to spread to social media and haunt your son forever when it was just a mistake.
