My 7 year old is in first grade. The other day he came home and said that at recess a boy pushed him. (Now to back track just a tad, this is a boy who has been doing this since last year, and for no reason has been mean and bullying my son. It isn't the first time he has pushed him) and he finally very bravely pushed him back, but the boy kept pushing him and he fell down a few times but kept getting back up he fell so hard at one point that he hit the BACK of his head and got a bloody nose. well two other boys came up and started pushing him also and he kept falling to the ground. He couldn't get away from them. WHERE WERE THE TEACHERS? And the other recess watchers. No one came to break it up they finally stopped when a teacher blew the whistle to come inside. He said then couple of his friends seen him in line and said he had a bloody nose and when inside he tried to tell his teacher. She quickly blew him off saying he should have told someone as soon as it happened.......So my son came home thinking he got beat up and the teacher didnt even care. Which i think is exactly it. When i called his teacher and told her what my son said and what happened and how i felt she just made excuses saying she didnt hear him say this or that and she didnt know or realize. well i gave her the names of the boys and my son said the next day that he and the main boy were brought in the office and the boy got one day of recess taken away form him and thats it. I am completely unsatisfied, and extremely pissed off (sorry about the language) at the teacher and how she handled it. But I dont know what else i can or should do? Any advice and help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you in advance!
