my daughter joked in her french class that she wants to be gone, like die. now they took it seriously, and i understand that. my question is, are they allowed to ask her questions without me? on the way to school, she texted and said she was joking. i told them "i know my daughter" the asst principal said she disagree. i felt insulted. but since i am from a different country and not as fluent in speaking english, i did not say anything cause i feel if i say something, things will get worst. and she kept saying they were a mandated reporter. all i know for a mandating reporting is if there was abuse physically, mentally, financially and sexually. so i am thinking now, did they think there was abuse in our house. my daughter insist she was just joking and was blown out of proportion. and if i dont do anything by the end of the week they will call the police and bring her to a facility for observation for 72 hours, do they really have that power?
