Parent bullying our child
Well I'm back with no good news I'm afraid.. The school is not going to support my daughter with the verbally abusive parent. We were basically told that they would seperate the the kids next year which is not even the issue and does not deal with the parent.

Looks like we are going to have to take matters into our own hands and confront the parent. I'm not that type of person but it seems it is our only other option. Talked to the Justice of the Peace and they told us to deal with the superintendant of the school system. Talked to the police and they will get involved if she does not stay away from our daughter.

The only other thing is to pay a lawyer and get a restraining order against her. The victim never seems to win...

I'm so sorry that you are having to go through with this.

You might want to ask the police how you should handle approaching this so that it doesn't seem like you are bullying this parent or so that she doesn't turn this around and call the police on you. Will the school back you up to confront her in the principal's/asst. principal's office so that it's not a shouting match or even seen by anyone else?

If all else fails, make sure you follow through with the police if she says or does anything to your daughter again.

Sadly, your school system sounds a lot like our school's here in my town.

Stay in touch with us even if you just want to vent about it. I've been there and there's just some times that I need to let it out.

Frustrated Parent
No, the school is done and won't even reply to my last email. The police were actually very helpful. I have no intention of raising my voice. I would not lower myself to her level. I am going to make it very
short and clear what is going to happen if she does this again!

I will tell her we know the abuse happened again and the school is aware. That the school with deal with her daughter and we will deal with her directly from now on. I will also let her know that we have contacted our lawyer and the police and that if it ever happens again she will have to deal with them not us. The police will go see her if it happens again.

I also spoke to a therapist throught our doctor and she says our daughter
needs to stand up to her and very loudly say NO! in front of anyone who will hear..

Thx again for all your support!
