If you read my post that I sent earlier today then you know that along with a bunch of other bad stuff today my 9 year old's vice principle called me today to tell me that my son had thrown a fit after someone was mean to him today and ended up pushing another kid. After talking to my son I now know what really happened.
While the Vice Principle just thought the kid called him a name the kid was actually taunting him and teasing him. Then my son got angry and starting jerking his body around and moving his hands around and he accidentally smacked his best friend who standing by him trying to calm him down. He did not mean to hit him, and I believe him that he did not mean to hit him. That is his best friend and he would not just smack him or push him because someone else made him mad. My son is also not violent. His older brother teases and annoys him all the time and he has never hit, pushed, or punched him ever. He is more of the run away and cream type. LOL And no my older son is not hurting his little brother he just thinks its funny to tease him get a rise out of him, which is mostly just in fun, but I can certainly see how annoying it is and he gets told to stop fairly quickly.
Anyways when I heard the name of the kid who was taunting him from my son, I remembered hearing that name a couple of times in the last couple of weeks, just kind of in passing my so mentioned that this kid had done or said something mean to me and 2 days ago he said that this kid told him he hated him, and yesterday he yelled something negative out in front of the whole class about my son, and my son told me this after school yesterday before this even happened today, so I know my son was not making anything up today to save his own hide. I asked him if this kid picked on him a lot and he said, "Yes, he picks on me all the time, and I didn't mean to hit Sammy I felt really bad and I apologized to him." He was chocked up when he said it and Sammy said it was OK he knew it was an accident. I really wish the Vice Principal would have called Sammy in and got his side of the story.
So I called the Vice Principle after school and told her that I had talked my son and that she should be aware that this kid has been picking on my son for some time. So she is going to talk to my son's teacher and make her aware of that and have her keep an eye on that kid and my son. My parents never stuck up for me and it really hurt because like my son I was small when I was in elementary school and I got picked on a lot and I often got blamed for things when I was actually the victim, and my parents never stood up for me once. I am not going to let that happen to my son. I am no hell raiser, but I believe my son was the victim today, not the guilty party.
By the way this kid is a whole head size bigger than my son.
