School bullies

OK today ds (10) was outside for recess hanging with his friend w and his friend a. A is in a different class (same grade), and w is in ds class. A's teacher called her over and told her you should make a better choice in friends. A went back to ds and w and told them what was said, so ds and w went to the teacher and w asked why she would say that and the teacher said because you are bullies.

NOW, ds isn't a bully, he is a peace maker according to his teacher (past and current teachers have said this, and there is a kid in ds's class that is being bullied and ds is the ONLY kid that stands up for him, that is coming from the kid who is being bullied).

So how would you handle this, what would you do?

  • I would talk to DS's teacher about this first and maybe bring in the teacher. having labels put on a child by any teacher especially if not accurate cause a lot of harm. And really why did she say anything like that to the kid talk to the parent if there is a concern.

  • go directly to the teacher. sounds like something that could be resolved with a visit to the school. maybe there are things that you are unaware of that the teacher could fill you in on, or maybe you need to put teach in her place! lol but that is where i would start

  • Take it up with the teacher. Even if you child was a bully, the teacher should not be speaking with students on this level. I would also take it up with the Principal.

  • I would tell that teacher to mind her own business. First of all who your ds hangs out with is not her call. And shouldn't she want the positive influence of your ds on other kids?

    I'm not sure why but I am rather perturbed by her behaviour That teacher sounds like she needs to grow the hell up. Labelling the children she teaches is NOT HER JOB.
