I'd like to know what happened with Msmofets daughter. After speaking to the principal I would call the police immediately so you leave a paper trail in case this ever happens with this boy again. If he's allowed to get away with it this time, he'll always think that he can and perhaps his behavior will escalate into something more aggressive towards females.
The principal needs to take manditory sexual harassment classes so he knows the meaning of it. This goes way beyond the playground smacking little boys do to show girls that they like them. Grabbing genitals is not amusing to a correct thing to do.
ok, rant over. sorry.

It's easier to clear the counter!! LOL
I never leave utensils out , I'm always telling hubby to throw his used toothpicks in the garbage, he leaves them laying around.

While the actions of the child need to be officially investigated, so too do the actions of the principal and the aide. I don't have kids but I know I wouldn't want either of them being "in loco parentis" for them if I did. Dual action required.

thank you for caring everyone. i have calmed down slightly and here is an update.

ok heres whats going on at the moment. YES i know his name that was never the problem. i wanted to know if there was a report filed at school and what actions were being taken. the law is because of the minors i can't be told anything specific about what actions are being taken. i was told this by the police. it is to protect all minors including my daughter those records are sealed. i am going to see how things go and then take it from there.

oh btw i live in such a small town that we don't have a post office or library and only 1 school so the principal IS the superintendent of schools.

my daughter eluded him so he never actually got the chance to touch her due to her quick reflexes (and crude comments are not uncommon at that age). but the intent was there and that is just as bad as if the action was followed through. if he had actually touched her than the situtation would be slightly different and i would have filed charges of sexual assault on the spot. also if my daughter is EVER told in the future not to tattle by an aid again i will take action against the aid. you see the fact that he NEVER actually touched her seems to make some people take it more lightly. (THAT also bothers me big time) but the intent was there and he would have if not for my daughter reacting quickly. i will see how the school deals with this and take it from there.

so it is on record with the police, when i call the sergent took her name and age, my name and the boys name. so there is a trail on record from my calling the police within an hour of talking to my daughter and the principal.

thanks for caring and asking. i actually just needed to vent/scream it out loud!!

I went to an Alice Cooper concert Friday night and had a blast, but one thing really blew my mind. There was a couple in the fourth row there with their two kids that were about 4 and 6. Concert material aside exposing those young ears to the volume of a rock concert made me cringe.

BIG RANT!



What is freaking disocvory channel doing now?

I turn it and they're showing a show that's been on the sci fi channel for years! but with a different name and different people "rude people to boot"

I mean what the heck? Who do they think they are putting a show on called Ghost lab? My first impression of the show "It blows chunks to kingdom ***". And has no place on the discovery channel.

Anyways I still think Ghost hunters was top dog show until they fired Brian from the show. And then the show went down hill from there.

My foot hurts. It started to hurt badly last year while in cooking school. I've not been on my feet as much, but today it really hurts. Last year I had $4000 of dr. bills for it, not really finding out anything other than osteopenia and a bit of arthritis. Insurance covered some of it, but we are still making payments on those bills. I'm going to hopefully start working in a week or so, as a substitute teacher. I have an interview on Monday. If I can do that, we can get back into some regular health-care practices. husband needs new glasses, I should probably have my feet looked at, we need new flooring, kids could use some $$ help, etc....
For today, I'm going to put my feet up, stay off them, take some anti-inflammatory, drink some water...

when i tried to ask some more questions he said it was late and he didn't want to debate. i didn't like his tone at all and the sense that he just wanted to go home because it was late!! to freaking bad buddy i pay his salary his is paid to talk to me when there is a serious problem like this!! in my eyes this is serious. do you think so?
i have a right to be livid!!
What about taking it to the papers/tv who ever will listen if the school won't? Sometimes that's what it takes, you have to embarrass the people who are supposed to "care" into taking action. Just a suggestion.

I'm glad that you were able to work this thing out ok and you now have this on record. Boys need to be taught that this sort of behavior is "wrong" no matter who it is directed toward. I think this kids' parents need to sit him down and teach him about R-E-S-P-E-C-T!!
