  • You never know with kids now days , I think you did the right thing. What if this child is doing this to Other children as well .. it needs to be noted.

  • You did the right thing. If the school isn't helping you, you have to protect your kid. Have you talked to the principal? Weapons aren't allowed at our public school and you get kicked out if you have them.

  • No way did you over-react! If someone threatened your husband two days in a row with a knife, wouldn't HE tell a cop?

    Just because it's a kid is no excuse for this kind of behavior....we all know what kids are capable of these days. (Columbine, etc.)

  • It amazes me how some parents can let their child get so violent that they threaten other kids. I would report the mother to CPS honestly.
    IMO, you did the right thing. I mean, the kid threatened your child with a KNIFE!

  • as in he had a knife when he threatened him? i'd have called the cops and sat in the office of the school until they showed up and then let the principal explain why nothings been done. if it was the threat of using the knife i still would have called the cops and reported it and i would have made sure they knew the school was aware of it and hadn't done anything either

  • WOW!!!! Why hasn't the school punished him? My school system has a no tolerance policy for weapons or bullying. You did the right thing, you have to protect your child.

  • still they have to realize that kids these days grow up alot quicker than they did even 10 years ago, and that school violence has gone way beyond fist fights in the playground. especially since its a smaller school you'd think they'd be more aware of issues with their students. i'd even consider transfering schools if that is how they react to something like that. what happens when a kid threatens to bring a gun to school and actually follows through b/c the school authorities did nothing about it?
