I have 3 boys we've lived in our neighborhood for 4 years and haven't had any problems until a family moved in a couple years ago and now a new family moved in that has become allies with this other family. There's a total of 4 boys from the other 2 families and we've been dealing with non stop bullying. Last year one of the boys said he wished my youngest was a baby so he could pick him up and drop him on his head. I talked to the mother and she doesn't care this new family their youngest tried choking my youngest I made the mistake of letting it go because they were new to the neighborhood and I am regretting it now, because the problems have gotten even worse. All the kids go to the same school my middle son is being threatened by one of the kids saying that he wants to choke him and slam his head against a window then getting off the bus one of the boys said they wanted to kill my youngest. I've contacted the school and they are not taking my allegation serious because the other family also contacted and had all their kids file a report saying my son had threatened to choke the younger brother. I know my son he can push kids buttons but I also know he wouldn't threaten a younger boy. I've done everything possible and I feel like like no one wants to listen to our concerns. They haven't physically attacked my kids but the threats are really getting scary especially as a mother having to deal with this. Also to top it off the boy in my sons class has gone on a campaign to ruin all of his friendships he's telling kids that I walk around the neighborhood with a bat hitting kids and that my kids are the one's walking around the neighborhood throwing rocks and causing problems while they do nothing wrong. I don't even allow my boys out anymore until the sun goes down because I know the other kids will be inside. All the boys involved are in elementary school and thats one of the reason the school isn't taking us serious on the whole boys will be boys.
