I went to pick up my son at school today and he told me that he had to go to the principals office because a boy in his class had said haha your mom must be dead, since his dad was there to pick him up instead of me. So he went in today and told his teacher and she sent them both to see the principal. The little boy said that he did say these things he also says things about my sons dog that has passed, because he knows that this upsets him. The little boy was very upset about getting in trouble and my son even apologized to him for getting him in trouble. These 2 boys personalities just clash and i have had conversations with the boys mom several times about issues. But my issue is that she works at the school as a teacher and when this was over her son went to his mom upset and my son overheard her say well i don't care what was said u r not in trouble with me. So i called her and discussed the situation and she told me that my son had said the same thing about his grandpa a few days earlier but he didn't go tattle and that this all just got blown out of porportion. I do not believe that it did this has been going on all year between these 2 and it came to a point where my son had enough. Although i am not at school for my son to come to when he has an issue in fact i didn't even know that he had went to the principals office and even though he wasn't the one getting in trouble i would have liked to have been notified. I have told the boys mother that if she has any issues with my son i would like for her to call me and not let this get out of hand and not to come between our friendship but i could tell with her tone that that was not going to happen and that is fine. I know that both of us just want to protect our children, I was just hoping that her being a teacher she would be a little more understanding. I don't know why kids have to be so cruel as to want to hurt 1 another.Answer Question
Sounds like the Mother has an issue too and her son knows as long as his Mother is not making anything of it, he can say anything he wants.
Until someone pushes up on him and puts him in his place he will always have his mouth opening saying anything and this is not where this should end up going but sadly it may and if not your son, than someone else's child will do it.
Just because her son did not go tattle does not mean she should not sit down with him and discuss with him how its not nice to say what he said to your son or to anyone else.
Maybe you can try talking to her again, all of you get together outside of school and have a discussion about what should and should not be said to another according to the situations, cause we want to build friendships, not hurt feelings and be better people not the other way around.
