my son goes to a small catholic school. this is his first year and he started late in November. its about 9 kids in his class. he also has an I E P. When he first started he told me about a kid that was bothering him. i went to the school and address the issue with the head father who reassured me that it would be taken care of. now about 3 weeks ago come to find out my son is still being made fun of. He was coming home asking if we could move back to MT. POCONO, P.A. but would never say why. and i would tell him things like stop eating so much junk its gonna make you gain more weight and he would say oh you sound like the kids at school. and to top it off he would cry at night. i went to school and ask for a meeting with the children parents and only 1 of the boys parent came. this meeting had no affect on the situation. the kids kept going. i have a 3 yr old also in the same school and they even told my son they would hurt his little brother. today was my third visit to the school meeting with the head father and still nothing has been done. instead the kids play on my sons emotions by saying sorry and blaming it on the other kid just so they wont get in any trouble. my son is so desperate to fit in and be friends that he falls for it so now it just looks like he cant handle the jokes. im so stressed out about it that i start to cry every time i talk about it. i yelled at my son today because he doesn't understand that they are using him so that he wont tell on them but as soon as it blows over they start it all over again. calling him fat and saying he would be cool if he didnt open his mouth. and how he should not talk at all just be invisible. they told him they were going to throw knives at his brothers chest and come to his house and shoot him and leave him dead on the couch. when i told the school about it the kids just lied and said it was my son saying all these things. im at the point of pulling my son out of the school but its already april and only 2 more months to go to school is finish. and why should my son have to be the 1 who has to leave? this is a mess and i dont know how to deal with it. im trying to stay strong so he doesnt feel like there was no point in telling on them because it only gets worst. what to do?Answer Question

and why should my son have to be the 1 who has to leave?
Because you want him not to be bullied at school. If your getting this kind of crap from a private school how much worse can public school be?

I have my son in a private school. I do so because I want him to have a smaller, more intimate, comfortable environment. Any school that could not provide this is something that is not appropriate for my child. Of course I would make the decision to pull him out. I understand you want what is fair and you want for the matter to be resolved. And if would make sense for a school to address it with the students who are causing the harassment. But they are not. They are not protecting your child. I am not about to let my child suffer based on notion of what I think the school should do. Personally I would enroll my child in another small setting as soon as quickly as I could. I would also have him with a personal therapist as well. And if need be, because of the special learning needs, hire additional specialists to work on maximizing his learning potential.
