Q & A

Interesting situation...Son mentioned to me that at work this week, he had to break up a fist fight between an eight year old girl and six year old boy..she apparently had been tormenting this boy and son has them in his youth group.  He mentioned this to his boss, who doesn’t seem to care and also to girl’s mother who was very nonchalant.  Son says to me that he does not know what to do if this persists..any thoughts?

    • she needs to be disciplined - she needs to know unacceptable behaviour and acceptable behaviour,  she needs to know what her actions mean and the mother needs to attend while she is told these things.....

    • I agree with Nita. What does her school do about her bullying? Her teacher, principal, and school counselor need to discuss her unacceptable behavior with her and mom. If mom doesn’t cooperate, then perhaps another family member who will help take responsibility and have her accountable for her bad behavior. If there isn’t anyone, then the counselor can obtain a social worker to assist. At our school there are consequences as well as a behavioral plan set up by school staff.  

      It’s so sad that some children are so mean and disrespect everyone. Your son’s boss should have done something about it. If she is unable to make good choices, then she should be excused from the youth group. We all need to feel safe and treated in a respectful manner.

    • Thanks ladies for your input!heartheartheart

      I will mention all these suggestions to son and he will continue to address this issue, it is sad, because he is a fitness instructor and not a referee or babysitter and should not be put in that position.  I hope he does not get too fed up and look for another job, but so be it.

    • I hope they can get it straightened out, for your sons sake as well as the kids she bullies.

    • why is the school not insisting on the parents taking action?  if the mom is nonchalent-she’s also probably a bully in her adult world.

      this shouldn’t be tolerated and the parent should be informed that the school will:  kick out her child and inform the parents of the children she’s tormenting that they have a right to charge the girl criminally.

      they may not want to do anything about what they perceive is normal behavior-but hearing that no one else considers it normal and they could be held liable-they could wake up and smell the proverbial coffee.
