Yesterday was the first day of school and I had a parent come up and tell me about a problem between her child and another student. Apparently this has been going on for a couple of years and she was surprised they were in the same class. A girl in my class has been throwing things at the boy, saying rude comments, and I guess she actually even wrote him death threats last year. The parent told me that most of it happened during lunch and recess-so I don't think changing classes would help anything. But today the little boy came up to me and told me that she blew in his ear really hard and said, "That's what I think of you!" How would you handle this situation? I did sit down with the girl and tell her that in our class we were to treat everyone with respect, etc. But this is only the 2nd day of school. I don't want this boy to have to go through this all year long. I don't think changing classes would help, and might actually make it worse because the girl will feel like she has succeeded. Any suggestions?
