The other day I was walking with my son to library right after school. He is in 7 th grade. A boy that has been harassing my son had the nerve to come up to my son and say " I have been waiting to beat the h..l out of you" right in front of me. I reported it to the school, they said they would deal with it but last year when my son was pushed up and down the steps and being called every dirty name in the book the only thing the school did was send my son to the councelor. How can I trust the school to deal with the situation? My son has never done anything to the kid and barely knows him. My son is a good kid,respects all of his teachers,and wants to learn. My son is also a brown belt in karate and doesn't have to put up with it but also doesn't want to get in trouble either. Please give me some advice.Answer Question

This is an ongoing problem all around. It USUALLY starts at home, *&* unfortunately goes undelt with by the school system. In most cases they will have said child go to the councilor to 'talk', about any issues with another child. I think what the first women shared is so accurate! Good for you that you put your son in karate! I think I'll do that with my youngest when he's old enough. As for the other kid, he'll find someone else to pick on after your son, and it's all a vicious circle. I'd press on with the teacher of the other boy, (if you have the time.)This issue can tend to get worse before it gets better, one way or another. I'd say let your son defend himself, for sure!!!!
