8 Years Old: A Common Criminal?March 6th 2011 Marina Y Sanchez Freelance Columnist
For one, its easy to be understanding with the mother. Your 8-year-old son is still a baby in your eyes. You sympathize because no one wants their child ill-treated and in trouble.
However, when a situation is so out of control, the school needs to call the police to defuse the situation, it’s more than warning signs that should go up. It should be a foghorn!
Why isn’t the mother called? Don’t they isolate the child when he is acting up to avoid injury to others? It sounds like the school has given up on the boy. I know I would want my child’s school to call me each time so I personally can handle the situation.
What are your thoughts?
