What happened at the school meeting to help stop my son’s bully

Lizze and I met with the this morning for an official meeting being bullied. There’s been lots of discussion surrounding this lately, and the purpose of this meeting was to get everyone on the same page. 

The meeting lasted maybe 30 minutes and was attended by all of Elliott’s main teachers throughout the day, the principal, interventionist and of course, and myself.

I feel that the meeting was overwhelmingly positive because it provided some clarification as to what’s going on and allowed us to formulate a plan for moving forward.  

The one issue we ran into was that no one aside from Elliott has witnessed him being assaulted. This limits what the school can do to address this and today we learned why. 

Here’s the problem. 

What Elliott says is happening is considered assault by the school and needs to be witnessed by a staff member to deal with it officially. That doesn’t mean they can’t do anything about it, though.  Elliott and this kid have been moved to opposite sides of the room, and they aren’t in any of the same groups anymore.  

There’s no reason for them ever really to be near each other.

This all sounds good. It’s too bad your son has to learn to filter out mean comments, but he, along with the rest of us, will hear negative/mean comments for the rest of his life. Better for him to learn to ignore them than have his heart broken. I do think that kids need to learn to not say cruel things. My oldest told me, when he was in , that he met the parents of “cool” kids and the parents were nice people, who didn’t know how their kids really acted.
