DD's seat partner on the bus has been takng things out of her bag, including snacks & food out of her lunch bag. She's been taking things, & pretending to throw 'em out the window. Yesterday, she even somehow took dd's socks & shoes off. Dd says that when she tries to get her things back. seat partner hits her & pushes her away. Seat partner has also pulled her hair. The kids are in assigned seats, so I told dd to ask driver if she can sit in a different seat. This is not the first time this has happened. A different seat partner did similar things to her two years ago in 1st grade. Anyway, both times, I emailed the principals & asked them to intervene. They contacted the transportation dept. I know the 1st principal talked to the partner, & dd switched seats. I just emailed the 2d principal about this year this eve, but he said he wanted to talk to this year's seat partner-I imagine dd will switch seats again. I don't have time in the am's to drive the kids to school or pick 'em up b/c of my work schedule, but I also don't want my kids to keep going through this. I also don't wanna come across as a whiney, overreacting/overprotecting mom by constantly complaining to the principals about this. Am I overreacting? Any suggestions?
