Does your child get bullied at school? If so what actions should you take? If the principle brushes the event under a rug, what do you do?

Not trying to be mean, however why don't you teach your child how to stand up for themself. Maybe a boxing class at the Y will help. One day they will have to stand on their own, might as well get them ready now. They can't hide behind Mama's dress for long. If you go to school and complain, it will only make it worse. It's part of growing up.

I`m not sure you are quite in-tune with the way schools work today, but if a student "stands up" to a bully and fights, they both get in trouble, serious trouble. They would both have to serve detention or alternate studies school together--right back to square one. So what good would standing-up do? Nothing really but make the situation worse, more than likely.

Okay my child did stand up to this person almost 2 years ago. she got a week of detention. I informed her good for standing up sorry you got into trouble but she got what she had to deal witht he punishment.

The girl that called her a Bitch.. and she got her revenge. is now threatening to kill her, pinned my daughter to the school wall, pulled her hair. stratched her all up and a teacher even pulled them apart. and the little girl her punishment was to be removed out of p.e. I have put charges against her and the principle has yet to do anyother stuff.

what else would be good to do. let this continue i have talked to ALOT of school teachers, monitors, and other students and everyone says this child is a "bullie" and that the asst. principle and principle pamper to this child.

Take it higher and do not quit. There is supposed to be Zero Tolerance. You are doing the bully a favor in the end. If she is actually hit file assault charges with DP Police. DPISD does not like the police in the schools but start with a conference with all Admin. to ask what to do and how to do it.

First of all, just to clarify one point, the DPISD is at the schools most of the time. They very likely have a very good working relationship with all of the schools.

I would take the matter to the Superintendent of the schools. You can find him at the Admin building on Ivy (between 2nd & 3rd).

Of course, in with the gansta mentality that is popular with a large segment of the kids today (this is what equates to being "cool" for this generation), getting in trouble with the authorities is just a badge of honor.

If this isn't a matter of rivalry between two sects of this mentality, then you should certainly press for the school administration to take action, as well as filing charges with the police.

I also wonder what this other girls parents are doing about their daughter's behavior or are they those that think their kid does no wrong?

I'm sorry but what good does that do for children that are sick and disabled like mine but is constantly getting bullied at school. And it might be part of growing up but that does not make it right! I really hope you don't have children with that type of mentality. If you do then your are probably the ones tormenting mine over stuff that he has no contrl over.

I filed charges on the child, and even with me filing charges the "bully has still told my daughter she wants to kill her the Bully still hits my daughter and the school just pampers to this Bully.. Im glad that i am getting good adice from some people on here.

I have told my child to walk away from the Bully cause fight will cause a name plate on here " trouble kids.. bully... etc" i dont want my daughter to go to school to fight i want her to go to learn. But when I tell her to go to teachers, principles, office about what is going on, and for 2 years she has went to them and they have still let the child be in school

i have taken my matter to Don Dean the superintendent of school i believe that is his titel but he does the same pushs it under the rug.. he still always this child in school as well.

Deer Park Elemantry school principle Mrs.McLaughlin and assistant principle Mrs. Even
both fo them are scared to do anything to that child that is the bully. Last week a child in school pinched another child. and she was sent to bonnent for a day for injuring a child.

why is this bully allowed to, threaten to kill a child, pin a student against a wall, scratch a child, pull a child hair, choke the child, and still be able to stay in school

If you go to the school and ask many different children they can tell you the same.

Arnold Adair is the Superintendent of Schools for DPISD. You can find him at the Administration Building,

Don Dean is the Deputy Superintendent for Administration

If you don't feel that appropriate actions are being taken, you may want to read about the remedies allowed by law:

Topix screws up some links that contain certain characters. So the link shown above probably isn't going to work properly.

So, to get to the proper link, copy and paste this into your browser:
tasb.org/policy/pol/private/101908/pol.cfm... (LEGAL).pdf

(at least, I hope this will read correctly in Topix)

NOPE!!!
Let's try it this way...
tasb.org/policy/pol/private/101908/pol.cfm
?DisplayPage=FNG(LEGAL).pdf

Of course, now you will have to copy and past the first part (in a new window) and the copy and paste the second line on the end of the first part, then hit "Enter".(make sure you don't put a space between the two parts)

This should be taken serious! This is not just someone being a Bully. It is a Death Threat! I would go to the Police or the Police working at the Deer Park Schools. In todays' world one can't look at this as an idle threat! Don't sit and think it will go away, do something until something is done to resolve your problem!!

They sell small tape recorders which are quite good. I have one that is small enough to fit in the palm of your hand. Get one and teach your daughter how to use it. If she can get this person on tape with a "death threat", take it to the Superintendent. If he does not give you any satisfaction...go to the police department.

Sorry DP Dad, but the police will tell you that they can't do anything, based on a "threat". Despite the popular belief that the police are there to protect you, they can only arrest someone once they have committed a crime.

People say a lot of things, which they don't actually act upon. So, until they actually do something, there is no crime. However, the tape recorder is a good idea, but only for evidence AFTER actual physical actions have taken place. Then it shows "intent" and prior thought, which makes the crime more serious than if it were just on the spur of the moment.

Chatter Box,
What age kids are we talking about? Sounds like junior high age, but one never knows. Is the bully a special needs child? In any case, it is a "zero tolerance" district and if you push the right buttons and it is not a "drama" thing and both are wrong...the district will act. Handle it calmly but firmly in person.

I always think of the incident when my son was in the 3rd grade at Dabbs. Since I worked, my mother picked him up at school. There was a kid in his class that was always "bullying" him. We told him to take up for himself. It all came to a head one day as school was being let out. A fight ensued. The other kid's dad saw what was happening and proceeded to pound my son in the face. My mother, seeing what was happening, got out of the car and just about beat him to death with her purse. The police were called. We filed charges on the guy but later dropped them. I hope that it taught him a lesson about an adult hitting a child. Like father like son......

I think they can put a restraining order against the person that makes the threat. Not sure how this works for minors though.
