A little background on the school my kids go to. In the late 90's there was a school shooting there. It was a year before Columbine, and up until then it was the largest in US History. Since then the school has taken a zero tolerance to bullying. Which is great, but the issue I have today is this kid who is doing the bullying, his dad is the HS football coach. Now, we do live in the south, so as you can imagine, HS football on friday nights runs our small town.
I get the feeling had my son been the one to do the bullying, he would have been expelled.
My son has been punished. He is grounded for two weeks. No video games, no extra curricular activities. Just school, home, and school work.
I had a meeting at the school today and got the full run down of what exactly happened. It's long and complicated story. All ends with they both like Sara. Well. The other boy told my son he was too skinny to be Sara's boyfriend. My son then said ' F Off'. Knowing the whole story from the adults that were present makes me feel better about my DS punishment. I also don't believe the other kid should be suspended for that.
Hope Sara's worth it to these boys!
