A teacher I work with Is bullying my 10 year old son what should I do?

My son is being called a Mama's Boy by his own teacher and his peers call him the same thing as his teacher does, his peers constantly tell lies about him to his teacher just to get him into trouble, my son has tried to explained to him the situation and he just shuts him up by saying SO YOUR CLASSMATES ARE LYING! he doesn't bother to hear his part of the story. I see and feel that my son is like traumatized and afraid of him because whenever he does try to tell me something he does but quickly tells me not to go and tell his teacher about it because when I'm not present he starts calling him a MAMAS BOY. My son tells me he expects him to do his assignments but he doesn't gives him the help he needs to finish an assignment and when he does nothing because he doesn't understand anything he yells at him and ridicules him in front of his peers. My son has told me this crying. I've talk to my boss about it but and I told him that the next time something like that happens I will pull my kid out of his classroom and take him with me to my classroom, would that solve the solution? I really need advise because I am in a tight spot here and this has never happened before I've worked here for over 8 years now and I've never had to deal with a situation like this before and I get angry and sad because I don't want my son being torture by his teacher while I'm just next door. I know my son is no Angel fallen from above he is sort of a hyper kid, but still he deserves to be respected by his teacher right?

Desperate mom and teacher.

As a teacher yourself, have you not tried to sit down and resolve this issue WITH the teacher concerned? How would you feel if a parent went to your boss before sitting down with you and allowing you to give your side of what is happening? Just saying. I think it is inappropriate to not first approach the teacher concerned for a meeting. If, after such a meeting, you are still not satisfied with the outcome, THEN it is time to take it further. This is exactly the way you would expect any other parent to conduct themselves, so you need to go through the process.

"next time something like that happens I will pull my kid out of his classroom and take him with me to my classroom, would that solve the solution"

Uh, no that won't solve it. After all, the other kids are calling him Mama's Boy already......this will only serve to increase their belief that this IS in fact the case.

Do you have a personal problem with this teacher that he is taking his feelings out on your son? I agree that a meeting with the principal, your child and the other teacher is in order. I am not saying your son is lying, but there are two sides to every story and sometimes the truth lies somewhere in between.

So when you went to your boss, what happened? What did they say? What has the other teacher said his side of the story is?
I think you need to call a meeting with the principle and the other teacher and get things out in the open.

More information? And is this the story coming from your 10 year old, or have you also spoken to the school?
