ok, it started friday, i was late for picking up the girls at the bus stop. this mother came up and started yelling at my oldest (10) about what my oldest didn't know. the crossing guard told the mother to wait for another minute and their mother will be here. she took off.
this morning while waiting for the bus i confronted the mother to find out what was going on. (she didn't stick around yesterday after the bus got there) she said my oldest and youngest (5th and k) has been hitting her son. her son and my middle daughter are in the same class. have been since k and there haven't been any problems. my oldest because she's a 5th grader sits in the back of the bus. she has never even sat next to him since school started. my youngest daughter sat next to him twice and he pinched her both times. he punched another girl in the arm when she was sitting next to him a week later. he stopped riding the bus for a full two weeks after he hit another kid.
now his mother is telling me that she's going to get the girls kicked off the bus and hopefully out of that school. the bus driver, (who i talk to every day) said that my girls has never touched him. he's the one who can't keep his hands to himself.
now here's the kicker, my middle daughter is the only one who can sit next to him and he won't touch her at all. last year she dealt with a bully and he knows she will hurt him really bad if he tried to hit her. (the teachers weren't able to get to them fast enough. the boy pushed her down and then stepped on her fingers. so she kicked him a good one.)
i emailed all three teachers and asked if they had seen or heard anything about them hurting the boy while in class. the bus driver told me that they have videos of the rides that will be reviewed if the lady does go to the board of education.
is there anything else i can do? has anyone else went threw this?

I know that my Sons school has an adult in charge of bus safety & discipline. I would call that person & have your Daughters & the boy have assigned seats up front on the bus on opposite sides. Make really sure that your Daughters are not instigating his actions. Have them not look or talk to him at all. Have them take a book or magazine on the bus to keep them busy.
