....because my 2nd grader threatened a classmate!! He said "...I'm going to call my stepdad and he's going to come shoot you and cut you..." He's NEVER said anything like this before! I'm going completely shocked and saddened that he could even THINK something like this, let alone SAY it! I'm going to pick him up in a few minutes & you can bet he'll be getting an earful from me, more when his stepdad gets home from work, plus a hefty punishment. He needs to understand the seriousness & magnitude of what happened. I'd appreciate any helpful suggestions. If you've got any nasty or demeaning comments to add, go ahead & keep them to yourself please.
