And the bully strikes again.

Today my son came home and was quite upset. His friend, a classmate, was punched in the stomach and shoved to the ground by the very same bully who has been bothering my son. The incident occurred today at recess.

Nick and his friend checked to see if their friend was OK and ran over to tell the recess aide what had happened. According to the kids, the bully admitted what had happened, but said it was “an accident.” Were there consequences for this incident –yet ANOTHER bullying incident from this same child? NO. The recess aide told the bully to go play elsewhere, so he left to go play with other kids. There were NO CONSEQUENCES yet again. A child was first knocked to the ground and then punched in the stomach and YET AGAIN, the bully was given that message that this type of behavior is acceptable. TWO CHILDREN told an adult what happened. One child was left crying after being punched. What is it going to take for SOMETHING to be done?


Note:
*I will be contacting the child’s parents to make them aware in case he hasn’t told them.
*I will be making the school aware of this incident. 
*I will keep you posted.

  1. i THINK IN THIS CASE i WOULD PHONE YOUR CHILD FRINDS PARENTS AND TELL THEM WHAT YOUR SON WITNESS… THEIR SON MAY HAVE NOT TOLD THEM AND IF SO AS A PARENT i WOULD WANT TO KNOW.. AND SECOND I WOULD CALL TO SPEAK TO THE SCHOOL REMIND THEM OF THE RULLES .. EVERYONE CHLID IN STATE SCHOOL ARE TOLD TO KEPT THEIR HANDS TO THEM SELFS … CLEARLY THE RULES HAD BEEN BROKEN WITH THE PUNCH IN THE STOMACHE .. AND HOW DO YOU ACCIDENTLY PUNCH SOMEONE IN THE STOMACH… CLEARLY A CASE FOR THE POLICE TO BE CALLED… IF THIS WAS A ADULT DOING THAT TO AN OTHER ADULT… CRIMINAL CHARGES… MAYBE YOU SHOULD SAY THAT TO THE SCHOOL

  2. Absolutely–I will be contacting his mom ASAP(cell phone # I have for her isn't valid, so I am trying to find another # for her). Also, when I talk to the school again, the principal will be made aware. The superintendent will also be notified by me Monday. This is not going to slide. Media attention will be the next step if need be.
