Yes, my youngest daughter is being bullied in school, unlikely to happen to my elder daughter but that is another story.
First it was the classmate with Autism who managed to tear a page off her book. I would have passed that off since I am supposed to understand her situation. But when this classmate threw a heavy wooden chair which hit another classmate on the face and pushed another one causing scratches on the knee and elbows, I got alarmed. Problem solved for now since the girl’s mom is now staying with the girl the whole time. Plus most of the time, this girl stays with the special ed teacher and only goes to their class for non-academic schedule like recess, electives and lunch time.
Then there is this other classmate, a boy. (This boy is causing me to feel white hair popping out and wrinkles appearing and I may have to look for wrinkle cream reviews soon)
Second time I brought lunch for the children (because I woke up a little late) and the first thing I noticed was my daughter’s tear-streaked face. A classmate readily volunteered that a classmate punched her in her tummy and sat on her because she wouldn’t budge from her seat, which this classmate wants to sit on.
I felt blood go to my head.
I asked the boy, he pointed to another one as the puncher. A classmate said he is lying.
I talked to the teacher and she talked to the boy. I took note of the incident in my daughter’s school handbook. I was supposed to write a letter (and blog about it) but I was waiting for my head to cool lest I write nasty things.
I would have foregone writing about it when my daughter dropped another bomb. He drank her milk during snack time. I told my daughter to not let this boy do this things to her. I wrote this in the handbook again.
Bite him, hit him back, kick his shin, punch him but do NOT push him because something bad might happen, were some suggestions I told my daughter who seemed not to appreciate my violent suggestions. I know, I may seem like a bad parent here and am losing my “sight” because I am supposed to be “objective” and more understanding since this boy, to my trained eye, looks like he has special needs and didn’t disclose to the school that he has so.
My two younger children have been homeschooled and are not used to have these things happen to them so they do not react how others are supposed to. You know, like, fight back the bully?
Second time he drank her milk, just last Monday, my daughter hit him and so far, none of the grabbing of milk from her happened. Yet. Plus, I was there again, more than an hour after he drank the milk and talked to the boy to stop doing these things to my daughter or else I will tell the principal what he did. Heh.
No grabbing of milk has happened yet since last Monday. Should I be glad? Not yet since Wednesday and today they have no classes.
For now, we will relax and not think of anything unpleasant.
