Hi, I'm new to this site. I stumbled across it trying to google what to do in my case. My son is 5 today, and he goes to daycare with my other two children ages 1, and 3. He asked if he could have an old phone of mine and of course I said yes. He took it to daycare on Monday, and out of curiosity my husband looked threw it yesterday. He found a recording of a 4th grade boy (probably 9 or 10) telling my son to say nasty bad words, and also talking a bit about the male part. And you can hear him clearly and even a teacher yell in the back ground "sit down". The recording is about 5 minutes long and then there are 2 more about 2 minutes long. When we asked my son he said that if he did not repeat then this older boy would get mad at him, and even on the recording he asks a little girl to say something and she responds "no", and he says "oh yeah fine the haters are always gonna hate". Who teaches their kids that? I went to the daycare and they said they were sorry and were gonna get after the teachers but i feel like its not enough. Earlier this year my son cried because he hated day care, turned out this little boy was bulling him, and i told the teacher and she said she was going to speak to him. My son never mentioned him again so I was under the impression he stopped bulling him. I went and filed a police report but they didn't seem to care either. I received a call from the daycare owner asking for forgiveness and to please take my kids back. Which i obviously am not going to, but a friend tells me that I should do something about this because he might keep on doing it to other kids and make it public even though the director called and apologized. What should I do? Should I sue? Should I send it to the news? What SHOULD I do as a mother?
