Get Help. Get Help Donate. Prevention Programs. Child Sexual Abuse Prevention. Personal Saftey. Not a realistic option because the Union will let it drag on for years. I am not a believer of tossing aggressive kids out. They need just as much help as a child like I have now. Every one in life is held accountable when they have done something wrong. Doctors, lawyers, etc. Why not administrators? At the end of the day, these adults are the root cause of my child's problems and I am working very hard at making future unsatisfactory administrators held accountable.
Thank you for your time Izzy. Why aren't people getting upset with the bullying experts that have sold them a false bill of goods. I am simply the messenger showing informing society that the emperor has no clothes, and I am the brunt of everyone's anger. Your experience is mirrored by that of people all over the modern world. We have been led to believe that bullying is something that school administrators are actually capable of getting rid of, and people who have bought into this belief are being disappointed wholesale.
I have been warning for years that schools will never get rid of bullying by going after bullies, and have explained in great detail why, but people don't want to face it. When we take the same approach with our own children at home, it leads to endless and severe fighting between the kids. How will this work when we do it with kids in school? Yet we believe that if we take a faulty approach and do it more intensively, it is going to work.
You have spent of thousands of dollars trying to help your child to no avail. I just offered to treat him for free and you don't acknowledge my offer. I can absolutely understand that after all this time pursuing your cause of holding administrators accountable, you are not about to drop your mission, and you are more concerned with making them pay than with getting your child the help he needs.
If you reconsider, let me know. My offer still stands. If your child is intelligent and doesn't have serious neurological deficits, his suffering will end almost immediately. And maybe you can ask the administrators to pay for the treatment. It will be a lot cheaper for the school than going to court or bringing in high profile bullying experts.
Maybe you will kill two birds with one stone this way.

They will be responsible for getting him the help he needs and your son will have his problem solved. And maybe when schools discover that such an easy and effective solution exists, kids will finally start getting the help they need. I am not upset with you and have, in fact, stated that I agree with much of what you have said. I just don't agree with everything you have said. This is a good forum within which to have a cordial conversation. I am of the opinion that this is a social issue, not just an educational one, and not one to be left to our educational system to deal with.
I do believe I previously stated that I take on a "world view" and my efforts are absolutely not geared toward trying to rid society of bullies. That is something that just will not happen.
I do apologize for not acknowledging your offer, for which I thank you, however our residences are too far apart to make that realistic. My child is an extremely intelligent and angry young man. Now, five years after all of this started he is seeking help to manage that anger. He has the maturity to know that if it is not dealt with, it will interfere with every relationship he has whether it be work or social. He has come a long way. We are a close family unit and offer each other a tremendous amount of support. So, no, I am not spending all of my time and energy in "making them pay" harsh words by the way.
Fact: For three years my administrators were more concerned over the school's reputation than they were about "coming up with a punishment that fits the crime". These particular administrators were negligent. That does not mean that all administrators are negligent. If our kids should be "receiving a punishment that fits the crime", why not my particular administrators?
Your suggestion about getting the school to look after the help my son requires is a good one.

I proudly state that he managed to graduate in June of , and he has successfully completed the major portion of the treatment he required. Sometimes all a parent wants to hear is "well, we didn't handle the situation very well", but our administrators can't make statements like that.
It becomes a matter of potential liability against the school v. My guess is that the school administration did not look for a punishment that fits the crime because that is not what they are expected to do and they are not taught to do it. In most places they are mandated to punish by suspension and expulsion. The policy I wrote is one that I made and recommend, not one that schools are using.
The school was trying to protect its reputation because it is normal to do that, especially when they are being faced with the potential of lawsuits. That is the consequence of having laws that make schools responsible for the bullying. Their primary concern becomes protecting themselves from the law. I wish I had the time to go into a lengthy discussion with everyone who leaves comments on my website. I have written more than anyone in the world on the problem with the anti-bully movement and the naive belief that schools can be forced by law to make children be nice to each other.
You can read more on my Psychology Today blog and my website if you wish to understand this better. Laws are good for dealing with true crime.

They cannot create harmony among people. Laws turn people into criminals, so people have to defend themselves from the law so they won't be punished. This has been the experience of every place that has passed school anti-bullying laws. I want to thank you for your time. I will be doing some more reading on your blog, but in the meantime, can you direct me to the policy you speak of.
In Ontario, Canada we don't have an anti-bullying law so there was no requirement or necessity to protect themselves. A law to force children to be nice to each other is ludicrous, but a parent's expectation to have a safe school environment is not. Adults are the problem on this issue, not our kids. If you throw a criminal in jail and just let him sit there without any rehab of any kind, what do you think will happen when he is released into the community?
