We’ve had this bit of a problem with dropping Fysh off at school in the mornings. In the beginning it was a nightmare which is understandable as it was new and after a while he was okay with it but recently ish he’s become a screaming mess of “I’ll stay home alone” or if I say he can’t I have to work then it’s “I’ll sit in the car when you work” but he adamantly refuses to stay at school and most days I have to literally run out the building and close the door behind me so that he can’t come after me.
Well this morning before school I woke him up and he crawled onto my lap asking not to take him to school so we had a little chat and I coaxed out of him why it is he doesn’t want to go because as far as I can tell he has fun there, he’s grown a lot and his drawing/counting/colouring/jumping etc has really improved since starting school and his teachers all say that he’s a happy and interactive child.
So during our chat the truth came out: “my friends are ugly to me. Hunta does hitted me momma”.
Instantly my momma bear instincts take over and I am insanely protective. Why is this kid bullying my minion and what are the teachers doing about it?!
I had a long chat with his teachers this morning regarding this and they say they know that Hunta is a problem and they’ve been trying to deal with it. I of course demanded it be dealt with better because it clearly isn’t working if my kid doesn’t want to go to school.
Anyone else had a bully issue?
What do you do? I feel so helpless, I’m glad in a sense it’s not MY child who is the bully but that doesn’t mean I take it lightly that he’s the bullied. He has a mean right hook and has only once hit a kid at school but it was an older kid who was picking on a baby. He’s very protective but is at the same time too soft to stand up for himself.
Hate that my minion is going through this :(
