My 14 year old was suspended today for......What would you do? EDIT TO ADD WHY THEY CHOSE SUSPENSION

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
My 14 year old was suspended today.

For taking his shoes off in class, throwing his sock across the room and yelling "2319! We have a 2319", then jumping under his desk to hide.

Seriousily -_- wtf?

He's 14, ok. I get it. Your a kid. You want to have fun and make your friends life. But come on. Have some common sense and don't act like a 2 year old!

So I took his phone, iPod and laptop.
He asked what he's suppose to do for fun, I told him if he wants to act like a toddler then I'll
Treat him like one and to go play with his sisters blocks.

What would you have done.

Eta: I wouldn't be so mad but damn he needs to grow up and take some responsibility.

He's failing almost if all his classes and the ones he's passing he's Barry doing so.

I can't count how many detentions he's had for doing stupid shit.

And this is his second suspension this year.

Grounding doesn't work, and up until Christmas he didn't have a laptop or iPod to take away, if that doesn't work.... Well then he's going to think I deserve to be named the worst mom of the year.


EDIT: he wasn't suspended exactly for his "prank", he's reached his max number of detentions and AE, they only things left are suspension and expulsion. The schools as frustrated with him as I am. He's a smart kid, he use to do well in school and he has the ability to do well. He just won't fucking use it.

When the jokes and pranks started I just brushed it off. He's a kid. A teenaged boy. They joke. They prank. But then his grades started slipping. Detentions were becoming a daily thing, then he had AE all the time.

One prank resulted in a girls hand being slammed shut in her locker, which broke 2 of her fingers.
He And the other boys wrote apology letters and weren't punished because every one knew it was an accident, and I had hopes it was enough to get him to straighten up his act. But it wasn't.

Hes always in trouble at school.
At home, he's fine. He does his chores without complaint, helps around the house, helps with the you the younger kids.

But Send him to school, and he shows his ass (and e literally showed his ass one day).

He's not taking his school work , we talk frequently, I've told
And showed him important it is, and it's just not getting through to him.

I don't see how that warrants suspension. It is pretty funny.

 Same as you have, except I would not let him play with the blocks either. LOL

I'd give him chores to keep him busy while home. Suspension is not supposed to be fun. Then make him watch yo gabba gabba, since he's going to act like that!

Suspension seems extreme for a fairly minor disruption, but LOVE the blocks comment. Good one.

I think you did the right thing. There is always time for fun, outside the classroom.

That's funny!

But to be serious. He was was suspended. That would mean he was suspended from TV, computer, friends, video games at least until the suspension is over. I'd say no more than a week though. He didn't hurt anyone and that's not the most serious reason I've ever heard for being suspended.
