3 ways the school could indirectly deal with my son’s bully

I’m not having a good day. I was approached by the interventionist today, while picking the boys up from . Actually, I was only picking up cause Emmett was home sick. 

I’ve always made it a point to be as honest with this blog as possible. Sometimes the honesty is rather brutal. 

As I’m writing this, I’m literally shaking because I’m so upset by what I learned today. While I’m not going to go into much detail because I’m jot done with this yet, I do want to talk what happened. 

When I left the meeting with the school last Friday, it was decided that she would meet with Elliott alone, this other kid alone and then sit them both down together and try and work through whatever is going on. It was actually my idea to do that. 


The reason I’m so angry right now is because through this process, Elliott was convinced that not only did he misunderstand what happened, but that he was the instigator. He even apologized to this kid.

Take both boys out of the and home school them.
It’s obvious that the school and the are out to shit you up the wall.

well done you in holding back for a bit as that is more than I could do. The schools action hasn’t resolved much other than to teach that if he is bullied in future it’s probably his fault so to humble himself and to say sorry to make it stop. The has got off lightly….even IF Elliott had irritated him some way then yep say so by all means, but repetitive is not acceptable in any circumstance and he should have been told

I’m curious what happened during the interventionist’s talk with Elliott that made him think he was the instigator. Was it the issue from last year where Elliott told on the kid? Wasn’t that what you thought might be at the root of the problem? If so, I can see why Elliott apologized. If they are trying to work through it all, the whole thing needs to be completely unraveled to get to where it started. If it started with Elliott tattling, then that’s where they need to start and work forward. Hopefully this will end it. I also feel like… Read more »

Sort of along the same lines as Kim’s comment — this all just doesn’t add up. We’re talking about a school specifically for autistic kids (and other disabilities, right?). I would think that they would be more equipped to deal with, and more attuned to, any situation involving a social conflict between students. I mean, this is precisely what their entire student body struggles with and needs help with. All those touchy-feely “stomp out bullies” programs are fine, but there’s no better way to teach kids how appropriate behavior that having a practical, real-life situation to work from so that… Read more »

Also, you referenced talking to another parent. Other parents can be a great source of information (and sometimes they’re full of crap and don’t know what they’re talking about). But you’ve been asked about this before, and it seems like you aren’t really tapped into a social network at school where you have relationships with other parents, where your kids see other kids outside of school, etc. Other parents also might have some information about, as you found out here, what’s going on at school, and also experiences in dealing with school staff. It often seems like with the school… Read more »

Public schools encourage behavior…the school system is failing due to lack of educated teachers who really care……the only thing they do care about is covering up problems they are responsible for and harassing parents who stand up for their kids.. Guy e row elementary Norway Maine is an example of the worst.

Coming from the parent of a bully asd child. Sometimes we are trying with everything we have. We dont want our children to be this way. And the cooperation of teachers isnt always on point. After a year we finally found something to make it better for him and his classmates. We almost removed him for others safety. He hasn’t hurt anyone since September. But if we don’t know our kids is causing problems we cant try and fix them. My nephew was on the exact opposite of my childs problem. Meds and counseling. Broke my heart. But everyone’s better… Read more »
