Mom Was Called to School Because A Boy Tried To Snap Her Daughter Bra. What She Did Next Is Gold.

I am a nurse in the emergency room and we are not allowed to have our phone with us. They are kept in our lockers. A call comes from a private line for me at the hospital reception.

Phone: “This is Teacher from School. There’s been an incident involving Daughter. We need you to come in.”
Me: “Is she ill or injured? Can it wait until my shift is over in two hours?”
Phone: “[Daughter] has struck another student. We’ve been trying to call you for 45 minutes. It really is very serious.”

I go to school and I am taken to the director’s office. I see my daughter, her counselor, a teacher, the director, a boy with blood around his nose and red face and his parents.

Principal: “Mrs. [My Name], how kind of you to FINALLY join us!”
Me: “Yeah, things get busy in the ER. I’ve spent the last hour administering over 40 stitches to a seven-year-old who was beaten by his mother with a metal ladle and then I had to deal with the police regarding the matter. Sorry for the inconvenience.”

(After seeing him try not to be embarrassed, he told me what had happened, the boy had torn my daughter’s bra and she hit him in the face … twice. )

Me: “Oh. And you want to know if I’m going to press charges against him for [email protected],ally Assaulting my daughter and against the school for allowing him to do it?”
(They all get jittery when I mention [email protected] @ssault and start speaking at once.)
Teacher: “I don’t think it was that serious.”
Advisor: “Let’s not over-react.”
Principal: “I think you’re missing the point.”

(The boy’s mother starts crying, I turn to my daughter to find out what happened.)

Daughter: “He kept snapping my bra. I asked him to stop but he didn’t, so I told Mr. [Teacher]. He told me to ‘ignore it.’ [Boy] did it again and undid my bra so I hit him. Then he stopped.”
(I turn to the teacher.)
Me: “You let him do this? Why didn’t you stop him? Come over here and let me touch the front of your trousers.”
Teacher: “What?! No!”
Me: “Does that seem inappropriate to you? Why don’t you go and pull on Mrs. [Advisor]’s bra right now. See how fun it is for her. Or on that boy’s mother’s bra. Or mine. You think just because they’re kids it’s fun?”
Principal: “Mrs. [My Name]. With all due respect, [Daughter] still beat another child.”
Me: “No. She defended herself against a [email protected] attack from another pupil. Look at them; he’s nearly 6 feet and 160 pounds. She’s 5 feet and 84 pounds. He’s a foot taller than her and twice as heavy. How many times should she have let him touch her? If the person who was supposed to help and protect her in a classroom couldn’t be bothered, what should she have done? He pulled her bra so hard it came undone.”

(The boy’s mother still cries and his father looks angry and embarrassed.) The teacher does not look me in the eyes.) I’m looking at the director.)

Me: “I’m taking her home. I think the boy has learned his lesson. And I hope nothing like this ever happens again, not only to [Daughter], but to any other girl at this school. You wouldn’t let him do it to a member of staff so what makes you think he can do it to a girl of 15 is beyond me. I will be reporting this to the school administrators. And if you—” *turning to the boy* “—EVER touch my daughter again I WILL have you arrested for [email protected] @ssault. Do you understand me?”

I was so angry, I collected my daughter’s belongings and left. I reported it to the school board, of which I know several people, and I was assured that the problem was solved.
My daughter was taken to another class for this topic, away from the teacher and the boy.
