They bullied my son.

Strange & sad. My son was bullied by 10 other classmates yesterday. He had injuries on his arms and back. Fortunately, my daughter was with him, and when he warned them that she will complain in the school and will call the teachers they left him on the road. Yesterday I and my wife went to school and complained to the authorities. I talked to the boy who was head of this over the phone. His mother was apologizing for it and was crying. I am going to the school today again and will ask school authorities to take some strict actions against them so that they may not do the same in the future. I am surprised at what these boys would have done to my son if my daughter had not intervened. Let's see what the school authority does.

How traumatic for your son. Could you possibly consider another school for him? I think he needs to learn to stand up to the bullies and let them know he will not tolerate being picked on.. Practice with him saying NO you don't scare me in a loud and stern voice, even smack someone if need be, better to get suspended than have the Hell beat out of you and look like a victim. I know one time my nephew was picked on and hit by a kid on the bus...and he said in a loud voice. "You are weak." that worked....the kid was embarrassed and left him alone, but not sure it would have any effect in a big group like that...they egged each other on no doubt.

@sjvg1976 Yes, well I hope he can make some friends who have his back. Maybe if he can't find a group of friends he fits in with, it won't happen in the future.

@snowy22315 He has friends but they didn't support him that day. I told him to leave all those friends and make new ones. I also asked him to analyze himself there must be something in him due to which he is not having friends

We cannot think of changing his school in the middle of the session. I am following with him daily and ensure that such things don't happen in the future for him.

@just4him But the thing which makes me sad is that my son was bullied but given equal treatment by the school management.

@allknowing Yes, it is. We went to the school today and met the principal of the school, she said is collecting the statements of all the students involved in the case, and then after the investigation, she will call the parents of all the students in the school.

Oh Sanjeev I am so sorry, believe me, I know how distressing this is. And I remember the same for my son in many schools. I hope now this will not happen again. Those mean kids have a pack mentality like wild animals once they start. God protect your son now. It is a blessing that your daughter was there.

@sjvg1976 Follow up with him from time to time. Advise him not to be scared to say when it happens despite the threats that may come with it

This is very very disturbing and sad. I hope your child is well now. Are the school authorities cooperating well. Make sure that your child has a different section in the next session. I think the real instigators would be just 1 or 2 boys among those 10.

Yes, he is fine now. My son is also naughty but he never bullies anyone. Till last year both of my kids were in the same section but this year my son's section is changed because he was involved in the case and was suspended the matter was closed but this boy again started poking my son and yesterday was the height. The school authorities have asked us not to worry as they are investigating the case and will act accordingly once investigation is completed.

The students who hurt your son should be punished. A good punishment would be expulsion from the school for a period of time or permanently.

Nothing happened and school authorities considered both who bullied and who got bullied in the same category and suspended them for an equal number of days.

To be teased and verbally bullied is already bad enough but to be physically bullied is a whole different level that should never be tolerated. Schools have disciplinary sanctions for students who involve in such violations. They can be suspended or worst expelled depending on the gravity of their action.
