my 2 boys ages 6 and 8 get bullied on the bus. it has gotten to the point where my 8yr took off and walked to a friend's house just to avoid this bully. (the teachers seen him leave school knowing he was suppose to ride the bus unless told otherwise with a note and phone call, but thats a whole nother issue) when my 6 yr old came home on the bus and my 8 yr no where to be found i was freaking out. called the bus barn and the school and they admitted they seen him walk with this other kid while my 6 yr got on the bus. the cops found him hour n half later, when he said the reason is because this kid keeps beatin on him on the bus. i have contacted the school and bus barn several times about this kid beatin on my boys. been a few times when my boys had show n tell that this kid had beaten them up and taken their toy(s). i dont know what to do anymore when the school officaials act like its no big deal. i have an idea of who this boy is, my boys dont know his last name, but im thinking its my friend's grandson who lives on the street/block that my boys say this bully lives and same first name...and the way my boys describe how this kid looks. this grandkid has a history of violent behavior which is why the grandma has custody and not his mom. i hope to find out for sure who this bully is tommorrow if the school wont tell me ill be gettin on the bus when my boys get home and have them point him out. i told my boys the next time this boy hits, scrathes, bites, pulls hair to punch him in the throat since my previous advice to them of sccreaming like hell isnt working. please understand im against fighting at all costs but at this point i feel my boys need to do somethin to defend themselves..... my 6 year old has came home with bloody scratches on his face and neck. and my 8yr with red marks which turned to bruises later on, on his arms and chest. i dont understand how the bus driver is not seein this since my boys sit in the second seat back from the front, passenger side. the school n bus barn keep saying evrything is fine.
so any advice on what to do next being it seems the school wont do anything about?
