Sorry for the length but I want to share some background. My son started kindergarten this year and for about the past month has been coming home every day telling me someone hit/kicked/scratched him. I have told him he needs to tell them to stop and tell the teacher or lunch supervisor. It is always the same two boys that are doing this. Finally after about the 5th time of him telling me this I decided to talk to the teacher. She basically said my son has been messing around as well and she would talk to them. I know he has not hit anyone but am assuming the boys are playing around which ends up in my son being hit. I am just wondering if she knows that they are horseplaying and if my son is involved then why she has not mention this to me so I can deal with it. To me that kind of play should not be allowed in school.
A few days after I talked to her my son came home with a scratch and bruise on his face saying a boy scratched and punched him. I was not happy. My boyfriend then talked to her and she basically said she was dealing with it and can't see everything. I help in the classroom so I know she can't see everything that happens but if this is an ongoing problem I don't understand why it's not being dealt with. I was helping at school yesterday and my son comes and tells me he was scratched in the eye(his eye was red and watering). I told him to tell the teacher and she told him that is was probably an accident and to go splash it with some water. She did absolutely nothing to correct this boy when she knows it has been an ongoing problem. I didn't say anything then as it was the middle of class but am looking for some advice on how to handle this? Any suggestions on what to tell my son he needs to do?
