My son (9 year old) is a sensitive little soul. To get him to talk about his day is like pulling teeth, but I guess I should have pulled harder. The principal called us Monday night, to say Son was sent to the office for fighting. Turns out, he has been picked on, harassed, and tormented by two other little boys ALL YEAR. We had no idea. On Monday, he'd had enough. Son knocked over the block tower the other boy ("Ivan") was building. Ivan punched Son in the back. There was a substitute that day, and he sent the boys to the office. ALL YEAR. This has been going on ALL YEAR and the only reason I heard from the school is because Son finally reacted. And for that, he was in trouble.
