My daughter was at school and some 7th grade boy put gum in her hair...

I called the school and they just said that if he saw the dean then he was most likely reprimanded.

But my DD had to take a shower because she said she hates germs. I am so upset! We had to cut out some of her hair.

The school did not let her call us, they made her go through the rest of 6th period with gum in her hair. Then she had to ride the bus home.

  • Id be more mad at the school then the boy. He probably has a crush on her.

  • Yeah, I'd be more upset that the school forced her to go through the rest of class like that and then ride the bus. Those kind of things are best attended to right away. The longer it stays in there, the harder it is to get out and the more hair it's going to have stuck in it. Plus that's just downright GROSS.

  • I'd be having words with the school about them not allowing her to call home and making her go thru the rest of the day with bum in her hair. That is seriously disgusting. Boys do weird stuff at times....when hubby was in, I think, 5th or 6th grade, he got mad at the girl who sat in front of him and he cut off her pony-tail....he was in some serious trouble....

  • Poor girl thats not fair. I find peanut butter takes gum out of hair. My daughter use to get gum in her long hair a lot.

  • I agree with what the other moms are saying. I would be madder that the school did not let her call home than I would be about the boy putting gum in her hair. He probably likes her. We all know boys usually do weird things when they like a girl. I remember my son's teacher calling me when he was in, I think, sixth grade, when he put gum in a girls hair. Turns out he had a crush on the girl.
