My son is suspended from school and i am not diciplining him
My son is 10 years old and got suspended yesterday from school for fighting. and I am not grounding him. I did however speak to him about dealing with situations differently. He got into this fight with 2 boys who is in a group of 3 boys who have been teasing and bullying my son all year long. I have went to the school about the many time and spoke to the school about it. Nothing was ever done. He finally got tired of it and he defended himself. I told the principal, vice principal and ESE specialist that we wouldn't have been sitting there at that moment if they would have done their damn job and dealt with the situation when I first brought it to their attention. They said have been dealing with it. I said well I guess it wasn't enough because it continue to happen. All you did was talk to the kids even when one of them sexually harassed my son by saying he had a small dick. ( the kid word). I told them what the hell did you expect to happen when my son has been bullied , which by the way, is illegal. He didn't feel like you were listening to him and every single time he would come to you, or I would come to you about it you dismissed it. I look at the vice principal and said even you, told me about 6 months ago when a student call my son retarded because he has to take meds at 1 pm, you said and I quote " kids will be kids". well guess what he dealt with it himself now. DO you damn jobs and maybe it wouldn't have gotten this far. there was more said in the 30 min meeting, stuff I said that were not so kind on my behalf. Stuff I have been wanting to say for some times now. I let it all out. I am not saying I am proud of my son but I am glad he took up from himself. One of the 2 kids was sent to the clinic. maybe, now they will leave him the hell alone. stop teasing him and bullying him. they even had the nerve to tell me that verbal abuse isn't important. I looked at them and said well you tell that to the parent who had children/teenager killed in school shooting due to teenagers loosing it because of bullying, you tell that to the parents who have children/ teens who have killed themselves due to bullying. Don't you dare sit there and tell me verbal abuse isn't as bad as physical, it is just as band if not worse and just as hurtful. The only difference is that once the marks go away from the physical the mental and emotional marks will never go away.
