OK. My 10 yr old son has a cell phone. Big Deal. His cell phone ranged in class. His teacher asked him for his cell phone. My son and teacher are going back and forth behind this phone of his. Long story short, he grabs my son by the ankles, and shakes him so his phone can fall out. Well, as the phone fell, so did his wallet. His teacher throws my sons wallet at the back of his head. My son runs to the office, crying, the teacher snatches him by the arm and asks the ladies in the office "are students allowed cell phones?", they say no, then the teacher snatches my son out the office. The vice principal asks his teacher, why is he crying like that? the teacher tells the vice principal that my son is "following directions". I understand that kids are not supposed to have cell phones. I'm sorry, but im a single parent that HAS to work. He comes home by himself until i get home from work. WHAT SHOULD I DO AT THIS POINT?Answer Question

Yes, by all means, get a lawyer. Don't deal with the fact that your child is being disrespectful and that teacher was probably pushed to his limit. Did he respond properly, no. But neither did your son. There would not have been a problem if he had followed the rules in the first place. BY ALL MEANS, SUE everyone you can think of to sue. In the meantime, you are sending your son the message that he can be defiant to authority figures and that you will defend him. Just remember, it won't be long until YOU are the authority figure that he feels he can defy!
By the way, why did you re-post this, you didn't like the answers you got before? Why, because no one was crying over your son being abused!? People are getting sick of permissive parents who want to defend the actions of their disrespectful kids!
P.S. Ten IS too young to be home by himself for two hours!
