My ds is 9, he's in 4th grade. He is being bullied at school. It started saying he smelled bad, his shoes, clothes, ext. so I go and get him new stuff and he gets fancy new guy deodorant and shower gel. He gets a relaxing mint bath in the morning once a week because apparently the daily showers in the morning aren't working. By the way I've smelled my child and he DOESN'T smell!
Well my son is now being picked on for his shoes. Some doc marten boots. I told him to stick up for himself since the teachers obviously aren't doing anything. I've talked to the principal and his teachers, DAILY. Nothing was done.
This morning at 9 a.m I get a call from the principal saying my son was hit in the face. While my son was walking to school this kid was picking on his shoes again, he was telling my son that his shoes were gay. So, my son started copying what this kid was saying. Now here is the only part I don't agree with that my son did, he called the other child's mother a fat nigger. Now again this kid had told my son his mom "me" was fat and other things but skin color wasn't brought in. So, they were both saying mean things. I don't agree with what my son said and I told him and the principal that. Well, this kid then punched my child in the face. My son did not hit him back. This kid started everything with his friends he was walking with. So, the principal sat both of these kids in an isolation classroom.
I decided against it and I picked my son up. He is now at home with me. Now the question is, what do I do now? I'm going to either walk/ drive him to school everyday and pick him up. I'm just so shocked that nothing more is being done to this other child who has been bullying my son for the past week. These boys were friends before the rest of his classroom starting picking on my son a few weeks ago. I feel so helpless.
Let me edit this for some women.
I did talk to my son about using that word. The taking him out of school was NOT because he used that word or because he was being punished for using that word.
He was being punished at school for being in a physical fight, NOT for the word he used. My son will be dealt with accordingly by myself and his dad when his dad gets home from work about using that word.
THIS IS NOT ABOUT THAT WORD, THIS IS ABOUT THE BULLYING THAT HAS BEEN HAPPENING THE PAST FEW WEEKS AND THE PHYSICAL ALTERCATION IT ENDED IN TODAY. AGAIN, MY SON WILL BE DEALT WITH HOW WE FEEL FIT WHEN MY HUSBAND GETS HOME FROM WORK. THIS IS A JOINT DISCUSSION AND PUNISHMENT.
