It really upsets me to know hat my ds11 has had a fight in school and said hat the boy he fought with was constantly picking on him and finally had enough when the boy touched him my ds reacted and hit the boy.
They both got disciplined for it @ school. My ds says the boy lives with his grandmother.
So now he has a record in school for fighting...ugh! ( there were witnesses)
Fast forward 2 weeks, today he comes home telling my dh & I that the boy he fought with had a bigger boy to push my ds while in PE asking my ds if he was messing with his friend my ds said no and walked off but reported this incident as well...there witnesses again.
I'm not sure whats going on but I wish it would stop...even though we've told our ds not to be fighting but hey where do you draw the line we just told him to use your his best judgment.
Help we want to do the right thing. :(

You have to be a big pain in your school's backside until they step up & handle matters properly. If talking to the principal or the dean doesn't get the results you want, tell them you will be going above them to the board & the superintendent. You can tell them your next step after that is to involve the police & the local media. I'm guessing they will do what they need to do if you tell it to them like that. It's worked for me when my son's classroom had no heat in the middle of winter. The threat of media coverage had them fixing it the next day. (even tho they knew since Aug. the heat wasn't hooked up in that room! Ugh! ) GL to you & your son.

Have you went and talked to the school about this? Most schools have a no fighting, no bullying rules. Only thing your son can do without getting in trouble is to report it.
