When my oldest daughter was in first grade she was being tormented by another kid. He abused her daily and I reported it almost as often. This went on for several weeks and I kept being assured that the problem was taken care of. One Sunday night I was washing her hair in the tub and she just burst into tears.
"I don't want to go to school tomorrow. That kid is going to hurt me again."
I lost it. I'll never forget that moment. I took her soapy little hand and I showed her how to make a fist and told her just where to plant it. The next day I got a phone call from the school. Come get your child, she struck a student and he's bleeding. She may be suspended. First grade. Well, kiss my as*. I went down there with the list of dates of when we had reported his behavior and to whom. You guys didn't do anything, so we did. How ugly do you want this thing to get? No suspension, and Jill never had another problem with the kid, or any other kid that I can recall. Document everything.
Some kids will only respond to getting their clock cleaned. Nothing a bully hates worse than someone who will fight back.
On the flip side, there was the day my son needed his as* torn up for bullying another child. They called and asked me to come speak to him. Second grade I think. I came equipped with paddle. Asked for a room with some privacy. Was told I was not allowed to do that on school property. Fine, I say, I'll take him home and wear his butt out. So I did. Longest ride of his life. You are suposed to provide a child who will fit into the required mold but are not supposed to use the means needed to get there. I had my rear end torn up one more than one occasion as a kid and I am the better person for it.
