My son Ky is in 6 grade, he's a good kid. Not trying to brag but he really is. He's one of those kids that his teachers always rave about.
That said, he walks home with the same group of kids daily. His friend M, J and her sister P and psycho girl. His other friend T also walks with them once in awhile.
Apparently, psycho girl has made it her life goal to make Ky's life miserable. She teases, not like "I like you" tease more like "you're ugly, you're fat etc etc" teases and she kicks or smacks him daily. All of the kids that walk home together have attested to this.
Well today she went too far. Apparently, she started off as she normally does with insults and tossed in a kick with all her might, to his bad knee. He responded by kicking her in the ankle, WHICH HE WAS IN THE WRONG FOR and is in trouble for. After kicking her, he immediately apologized and tried to make sure she was okay. Since she was screaming like a banshee "I'M GOING TO KILL YOU" repeatedly, he left, well tried to. She had her friend get her dad and her dad took it upon himself to YELL AT BERATE AND THREATEN my 11 year ond in the middle of the street. To the point of my son being in tears. Real mature things like "Your dad's gonna KNOW ME tonight" and comments along those lines
Kyler came home and told me what happened in tears, after calming him down, I called the school while I had him call his friends. I wanted to talk to his friends and see if they collaborated his story, which they did, word for word. I told the school what happened, gave them names and they suggested calling the police. A. because it happened off of school grounds and B. the prinicpal wasn't in.
That was getting me no where so I grabbed the school directory and called psycho girls house. I confronted psycho dad about threatening and berating my son and he replied that my son had been tormenting and teasing his daughter for weeks WRONG(I thought about this later too, if my son had been doing that why hadn't this "good father" done anything about it before) anyways, I informed him that he needed to speak to the other kids that walk home together, as I did, instead of just taking his daughter's story at face value. I also informed him that I had spoken to the other kids, the school and the teacher(I hadn't yet, but I had planned to)and I had NO PROBLEM calling the police if he EVER spoke to my son again. He said that his daughter had said that my son was in the street "beating the crap out of her" and that the "neighborlady" say that. THe kids(the other ones involved, said that the neighbors exact words were "Did that boy just kick that girl?" Because yeah, that's beating the crap out of her
I admitted that my son was wrong by kicking a girl but that his daughter and HER ISSUES needed to stop. I said he knows better than hit/kick a girl and he is in trouble for it. Psycho Dad's response "sounds like he DON"T KNOW NO BETTER" :rolleyes great grammer
I told him that I want his daughter kept AWAY from my son and I would keep my son away from his daughter. He said "yeah he needs to be away from her" I said trust me me he doesn't want to be around her. I somehow managed to stay calm enough to say thank you and hang up.(which he didn't deserve)
Then I called my son's teacher, all the kids are in the same class. I told her exactly what my son and the other kids that walk home together said happened. SHe was shocked and said she in no way believed that he had been tormenting psycho girl for weeks and that she would bring ALL the kids that walk home together in tomorrow and question them all. She said she would also contact the principal.
Last, I contacted M's(ky's friend)mom so she knows, so she knows what happened. I tried to contact J's mom but no one was home.
Now I know Ky shouldn't have kicked the girl and he does too. He's in trouble for it and he's being punished for it. But no way did he deserve to be yelled at, berated and threatened by some random adult!
But what do I do about letting him walk home? If psycho dad see's no problem in yelling at the kids like that and yelling at me who knows what hes like. Our addy is in the school register he could show up at any time! Do I take the big step and call the police or do I wait and see if anything happens with the school tomorrow?
UGH I am still sooooooo pissed!!
