My son is 9. And on the bus he came to 3 other kids hitting him, pulling his hair, and scratching him. they were calling him names. As he kept turning around that is what the driver saw he was getting in trouble. He had finally had enough and we work on using his words ( that is a work in progress) and he has been told he can't fight back he just let out this worst high pitch scream he has. When asked to move he (at this point ) was so angry he went into a ball in the corner of the seat and refused to move, continued to yell at everyone. pushed people away that were tyring to remove him from the bus.
As they were finally able to get him off other kids started chanting at him and the other students were upset. Now parents are mad at him. I know he handled the situation wrong, but really what are are kids supposed to do in cramped spaces? why go after him. I have chosen to remove him from the bus for now. But really he was only defending himself the only way he knows how. I understand the other parents do not have all the facts. But still.
