Can’t believe I’m writing this but my first grader told me this weekend that a boy in his class has been hitting him repeatedly in school on a daily basis with only a few light reprimands from the teacher. I requested to meet with the teacher to discuss later in the week. Today things escalated, and the other kid got sent to the principals office. What kind of precautions should I be asking for? I feel awful not being able to protect him. In a suburban public. Other kid seems to be from a troubled family as far as I can tell. Bullying wasn’t a thing when I was growing up so I’m not sure how to approach this and how schools handle it these days.
