What do you do when....? (advice)
What do you do when your child is being bullied but instead of telling a teacher, they decide to act out and disrupt the whole class?
My 7 yr old ds is being bullied at school. Everyday at recess this other child will knock him down and call him mean names. Instead of talking to the teacher about it he will run away, throw things and today even locked himself in the bathroom. I don't know what to do. When he finally tells me what happened after I already brought him home and checked him out of school, I will call the principal and let her know. I spoke to his teacher at confrences last week and keep in contact with her as much as possible. For a couple days they seemed like they were going to try to be friends but obviously it is not working out. How do I get him to understand that it is not his fault and the teachers are there to help? How do I make him understand that by acting the way he does, he is the one getting in trouble and kicked out of school instead of the other child?
