I have two daughter who ride the bus, Virginia who is 7 and Natalya who is 11 years old. Yesterday on the school bus Virginia was being teasing and picked on by a boy or boys who usually go after my older daughter Natalya. Natalya saw this and went to defend her buy getting phyical with the boy. I was told she was kicking and hitting him then had to be pulled off him. She got a referral from the bus driver and the princapal talk to everyone who saw what happen. He said the tape on the tape showed her attacking him and the witnesses confrimed what happen just before. Even though she was defending her sister she did it the wrong way and he has supened her from school on Monday.
I agree with him on the suspension, she choose the wrong action to the problem. It is her first time getting suspension and bus referral. I hope my daughter has learned her leason on the wrong way to handle a problem. I am proud of her for standing up for her little sister, but I just wish she choose the right way of dealing with. I think the boy or boys got what they really wanted, and that was getting her into trouble. She was starting to stop reacting to their teasing with bad choices and taking the steps her teacher and princapal set up to deal with them. What can I do to protect my youngest from these boys? and how can I help my oldest with chooses the right action?
Any help will be great.
