Don't mess with my child
Monday, January 24, 2011
On Friday afternoon, my son called me at work to inform me that my neighbor's 9 year old son had pushed him on the bus. He pushed him twice and on the second time he caused my 10 year old son to fall onto a 6 year old. It was hard enough to injure the 6 year old's back. There has been an ongoing tension between our two boys. Needless to say, the child has been picked up 2 times for hiding a gun under the steps of his house to shoot his family. Yes, I am worried beyond belief for the safety of my child. On Saturday, my son and two of his friends where in our backyard. The "kid" was in a field behind our yard antagonizing my son and his friends. I walked outside and kindly asked him to leave my son alone. He replied, "Shut the f**k up B!tch". I was flabbergasted as I would never allow my son (at any age) to disrespect an adult in that manner. I replied that he may think he got away with touching my son on the bus Friday, but I would be contacting the school and something would be done. Needless to say, he continued taunting my son telling him to come in his yard and try to do something about it. About 15 minutes later, the police were knocking on my door. His mother called the police on me...seriously, I never left my carport and did not threaten her child in any way.
Anyhow, this morning, I attempted to speak to the bus driver who seemed to blow me off. On my way to work, I contact the school to begin an investigation on bullying on school property. Of course, no one took my call, but took a message. By 9:30, I still had not received a return call, so I called again. I am not taking this lightly. This kid is proven to be a danger. Surprisingly, I spoke to the assistant principle who informed me that they had already pulled the video tapes from the bus and witnessed the "kid" pushing my son. I was also told that my son reacted in a calm way and did not try to defend himself. I know that he would have been considered at fault as well if he had defended himself. He reported the incident to the bus driver. The principal proceeded to tell me that there would be discipline action taken against the "kid" but she was not a liberty to disclose exactly what action. But, she did tell me that my son would know and would be able to tell me.
In all this, I just would the mother would be a real mother and teach her child some respect. But then again, I doubt that will ever happen because she is all about playing a victim. It is her fault that "kid" is they way he is.
