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


The interventionist is also helping to empower Elliott by showing him what he can do if this stuff happens again. 

He’s been given permission to scream at this kid if he hurts him again. They want him to disrupt class and call as much attention to what just happened as possible.  This ensures that the teachers are notified immediately when something happens and not later on, after the fact. 

At this point, we’ve done everything that can be done and all the pieces are in place to ensure these things don’t happen again. If they do, the hope is that Elliott can react in the moment and ensure that his teachers are aware of whatever happened immediately so that they can respond.

We know there’s also name calling and frequent teasing and while that’s not right, our main concern is physical assault. Kids can be nasty to each other and unfortunately, teasing goes along with that.  We need to help Elliott thicken his skin a bit, so these things bounce off him rather than be absorbed. 

Lizze and I aren’t feeling 100% about this, but I do think that this is overwhelmingly a move in the right direction.  

Since they made these changes, Elliott hasn’t been assaulted by this kid. Apparently, this kid still runs his mouth, but we’re helping Elliott not to be so impacted by his words… 

This will be very closely monitored as we move forward……

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 school, that he met the parents of “cool” kids and the parents were nice people, who didn’t know how their kids really acted.
