My son is 17 and going on a trip with his chorus, they will be gone 4 nights. 

here is my problem..... there is another kid in his chorus that since we moved here 3 years ago has been very physical with my son... it started with poking him with pencils, some pushing, few punches in the arm.. now we havent really made a big deal of these things because this boy is very socially akward and has a few other issues going on and he thinks in his mind he is being funny and that this is how friends act ect.. there is no malice in what he doesnt get that its not ok.... then a couple months ago my son was doing this blind fold experiment thing at school, another student had to give him directions to make it to the next class ect.. well on the way to the next class the boy came up and slammed my son into the wall again thinking it was funny... well my son ended up with a huge gash above his eye, black eye and fat lip. (this kid did feel really bad my son got hurt)

anyway... my son found out today that he has been put in a room with this student.  Im not ok with this... I worry that being stuck in a room together this student will think something up that he thinks is funny and my son would get really hurt.  My husband thinks Im being over reacting (because he is 17) and my son though he doesnt want to room with him doesnt want me to say anything... Me I want to email the teacher and say they cant be roomed together....

Send the email. Best to prevent issues instead of deal with them on a trip. Mention the previous incidents and that you have decided to make formal charges next time it happens and you would prefer to prevent it where possible.

Send an email.  There should be plenty of others he can room with.  Our school would allow kids to pick roommates.

Send an email I would not be ok with that.
Around here if he did those things he would be in trouble.

OMG for a second there I thought you were living my life, lol. Except my son is 13, & it was Boy Scouts not Chorus. Definitely talk to teacher, your kids are never too old to be protected:)

I would let the teacher know you do not want them in the same room. He's had problems with the kid before and it would only be bad to have them room together.
