I Hate Other People's Children

I will not forget the smallest member of our family K and I will post to him later this week.

I wanted to know your advice on several subjects. First, should I be worried that my son's teacher taught the class to remember the months of the year to the "macarena" complete with hip thrusts?

Secondly, my child, my sensitive little boy came off the bus in tears yesterday. He & R said that older boys were calling him "ugly" and "moron". Do I board the bus on Friday and WRING THEIR DIRTY LITTLE necks and perhaps threaten their lives beause I so fucking will or do I just write a note to his teacher telling her about it?
Who the fuck picks on a five year old?



I also have a giveaway going on right now, a parenting book that I think every parent should read. I have five to give away so comment away!

24 comments:

  1. I would totally get on the bus and tell those boys that if they so much as looked at my kids funny again I'd be calling their parents so fast it'd make their heads spin. And then I'd call the school and have them call the parents and tell them anyways. Cause I'm protective like that. (or a meanie, whichever).

  2. Vicki, this is what I would LOVE to do but you know what I don't love?
    Getting arrested.

  3. call the teacher or in to the office at the school. Maybe they need a helper on their bus to watch the kids.

  4. I like Vicki's suggestion. You're not touching the kids. You're not threatening them physically. You're just telling them that they're going to get in trouble at home for picking on a 5-year old. Perfectly legal. Look angry ... look scary. But don't touch the kids, and you should be just fine.

  5. Tell them that even though you can't touch them because they're kids, you have money and can hire other bigger kids to kick their little asses.

  7. Was it at school or on the bus? If on the bus, talk to the bus driver. I have a friend who's son is getting picked on by a girl (they are both in 3rd grade)and she marched right into the (private) school and up to the little girl and told her "you will not say one more mean thing to my kid, got it?"
    If you thinks months to the macarena song is bad...I'll have to post a video of the tootey tah song, very strange.

  8. Brilliant!!

    Ok. When I was about 6, a bigger kid (a boy about 9 years old) walked past me on the school playground and spit in my hair. My parents flipped. They took me down to the principal's office, and the principal had me look through school photos and identify the kid. Once they knew who did it, they headed to his homeroom with me in tow and had me point him out in front of his class. And then they took him out of the room, called his parents, and suspended him from school for a while.

    The school photo lineup is probably the most diplomatic approach. But I still think I'd board the bus and have words with the kids.

  10. My daughter had bus problems just a couple of weeks ago. She actually told the little brats she would give them anything they wanted if they would leave her alone. (Scare a mom much?) Luckily hers worked out on it's own. But I felt your pain, and your son's. I would talk to the driver and the teacher.

  11. In our district you take it up with the bus driver, he/she is supposed to have control of that bus, the fact that he's getting picked on just shows she does not. If the driver fails to correct the problem then go to the principle. We have had issues with kids on our bus too and I told the kids anything else happens we talk to the principle cause clearly this lady can't control the kids on the bus. ugh

  12. My niece who is a small sixth grader got picked on by 8/9/10th graders. They live in a small town and it's one of those places where kindergarten to teens ride the bus. Anyway..my point...these girls and boys were asking my niece if she is/was a virgin, if she ever sucked on a (insert male anatomy here) and things like that. We were all aphalled. I mean..honestly!!! Who the heck raises these kids..and why can't we smack them??

  15. OMG that makes me so mad!! I would be SO pissed if somebody did that to my Hailey! I would definitely call the school and report them. If I knew the kids' parents I'd call them too!

    My dad did the get on the bus and threaten the kid with telling his parents thing one time. That's where I got it from. He never touched him, he was just so mad his face was all red and he was practically foaming at the mouth. It was funny in hindsight but at the time I knew my dad meant business and so did the boy who was picking on me and my brother. He never had to touch him but he did scare the dickens out of him...hehe. Still makes me smile...

  17. A kid SLAPPED my sienna at the bus stop this year. Suh-LAPPED her. He lives in the next building over. He doesn't come over this way anymore. Not saying that anyone said anything to him or anything, I'm just saying he suddenly felt deeply impressed to straighten up and fly right...and not near our house.

    Call the school, and the person in charge of bussing, too.

    ReplyDelete
  18. You definitely should call the bus company and your child's teacher, especially if he arrives at school upset about what's happened on the bus and it's impacting his time in the classroom. Note every call you make. No kid, especially a five year old, should be picked on, especially (again!) when there is an adult present.

    I'd have a serious chat with that damn bus driver. They have a responsibility to protect your children while on that bus... in every possible way.
    Sadly, that kid has probably been the target of some other kid and your son is now having to bear the brunt of the trickly down effect. Hopefully putting a stop to it quickly will prevent your son from doing it to someone else.

    Don't you wish you could just protect them from everyone forever. My son is 21 (wtf?) and he got his feelings hurt so bad as a young boy and unfortunately I didn't do enough to stop him from doing it to someone else and I have alot of regret about that. I do find some comfort in the fact that he (now) feels bad about it, too.

  20. I remember one of the bus drivers I had in elementary school used to keep an old-fashioned round metal trash can in the front of the bus, and when I... I mean, anyone... acted up like that, he would stop the bus, and make the offender come to the front and sit in the trashcan next to him looking back at the rest of the kids in the bus who were now laughing at him. But I don't imagine that would fly these days. More evidence of the woosification of America. :(

    Here's how I would handle it, though. I would first go directly to the bus driver and explain the situation. Give him/her a chance to take care of the problem. And if that didn't work, I'd elevate it to the school principal.

    Ultimately, it's the bus driver who has to take care of this, and ultimately, you need to put him/her in fear of his/her job, as that is what is most likely to motivate the driver. But I would first give the driver the chance to take care of it without going over the driver's head. And if they don't respond adequately, then more draconian measures are called for... the principal, the bus company itself, the driver's boss... even letters to the editor of the local newspaper. That'll get their attention.

    And, fwiw, I do like captain dumbass's suggestion. Reminds me of when I took Lianne and Logan to Chuck E Cheese's a year or two ago and Lianne was running around inside that tubular maze and came out crying because some kid hit her. I then sent Logan in with Lianne to find the offender. A few minutes later, the little brat came out screaming to his mommy that another boy had head-butted him inside that contraption!

  21. Are you aware that the news you are watching is interlaced with Communist China's propaganda,as
    Communist China maps a realm of news with innocent lives?
    Communist China is scheming a millennial terrorist activity by manipulating people's behaviors
    through electromagnetic waves to contain criticism and harm innocent human lives.

    1. The anomaly in community traffic of cars and motorcycles and drag racing,and reckless honking by
    cars and motorcycles is exceeding an unprecedented level.
    2. Communist China has the technology to scan the human brain waves through military satellite and
    to discern and decipher their thoughts,scheming to instill individual interference focusing on
    each individual in need using the satellite electromagnetic waves.
    3. Deploying electromagnetic waves is poised to project onto the human brain with certain
    sounds for the perception of grossly traumatizing or startling pain,or deploying the broadcast
    of noise via electromagnetic waves in sleeping humans with edited clips of films or through
    voice or image signals onto our brains or besiege our sensory functions with fabricated
    audible and sensory illusions.
    4. It manipulates one's moods,such as smiling,nervousness,disgust,panic,anger,sorrow,
    desires,appetite,and so forth.
    5. It interferes the human brain's thinking capability,memory or linguistic capability,to name a
    few,causing spasms of muscles and fingers in the left and right hands,stinging aches
    throughout the body,coughing,yawning,trembling,involuntary blinking of the eye,runny
    nose and so forth.
    6. Electromagnetic waves are deployed to hinder the motoring functions of the body and neck,
    disrupt the heartbeat or respiration,manipulate dizziness,deprive one's sleep,spasm,saliva
    gland,dental neural pain,etc.
    7. Watch out that Communist China is infiltrating the news media by deploying electromagnetic
    waves to besiege the broadcast media,map out viral disillusion or erroneous perception,and
    investigate threats of brainwashing in viral spreading.
    8. It further moved to deploy various symptoms in what one sees of media icons,gesture terms,
    adding a skewed interpretation to one's cognitive awareness,misleading an individual to
    hallucinate or suffer,such as the North Korean's rigid smile,which is a tactic Communist
    China often deploys to counter the people.
    9. By observing the resolution accuracy of Communist China's sound and image (scenario)
    interference projected onto the human's brain,this can only be achieved with a certain level
    of frequencies at the source of interference,hence there is no doubt that it has to be the
    electromagnetic wave. Yet questions remain as to what range of frequencies the source of
    interference deploys,or what kind of electromagnetic waves insulation chamber would suffice
    to provide an insulation yield? Communist China might deploy specific metal alloys as small scale
    molecular antennas, which are attached to the human brain in large number,creating
    electromagnetic waves when the human brain is in function,where the current created by
    Communist China's electromagnetic interference would poise to amplify in a staggering
    number of multiplication,which Communist China can detect at all times to discern and
    muscles would excel the generation of electrode,which in turn create a corresponding
    electromagnetic wave within.
    10. Some of Communist China's intimidation experiences in 2002:6.9 "Hey,are you tired of living?"
    6.14 "We had concocted the bombing incident at the U.S. embassy in Pakistan"
    "Jiang Zhemin ordered us to kill you,but without creating scenes"6.16 "The Pakistani
    civilian troops confessed that they had schemed the bombing of the U.S. embassy in
    Pakistan,which we had manipulated them to confess,so what are you going to do about it?"
    6.19 "Hey,why don't you just go ahead and commit suicide""We are going to scheme
    murder using the public bus"6.20 "Commit suicide by burning charcoal,get it?"6.25 "Jiang
    Zhemin just does not like you,go hit your head against the wall".
    11. I reckon that there are victims abound out in the street,no less alarming than wars,and those
    not in the know or did not understand that Communist China's simple electromagnetic design
    could easily turn people against each other,create moving incidents,little lese to say mislead
    the youth to broach down the wrong path,suicidal prompting,design and fabrication of a host
    of society news (which Communication China refers to as movie making),as Communist China has had a
    decade long of the technology,and has long abused its technological advantages to scheme up design
    of abusing human lives by arranging fabricated news to poison and infiltrate the free
    world,manipulate and misguide the contents of the media,and deploy brainwashing and malicious
    spread of viruses,done with insinuation and riddles.The fact that Communist China's slaughtering
    the innocent had been the result of a high level of calculation,and a high level of rationalization,
    where the threats are in existence,and cannot be ignored of their detrimental severity.
    12. Communist China often coerce people to watch news compiled by the reporter Lu Yuling of the cable
    news in order for them to be saved,but few are aware that Communist China had merely deploy the
    reporter to entrap many people. I do envision that those that turn to committing crime as framed
    by Communist China,the extra sufferings by the ordinary people,and the deaths of many innocent
    lives will not go unnoticed as hindered by a condoning attitude.
    13. Nazi Hu Jintao, Jiang Zemin, Chinese Liberation Army, security police and armed police have committed suppression and massacre on their own civilians. Hu, Jiang and the other atrocious butchers owe these innocent civilians! More horrible and serious is that they are using mysterious killing technologies to cause harms to human brains around the world, making advantage of numerous international politicians and journalists to help them commit atrocities and beautify their actions, aiming to overturn and suppress those innocent people and cover up their terrorist acts and win fame by cheating the world. Securing in the knowledge that they have strong backing, these arrogant and shameless butchers have committed tortures and mass killing cruelly to those innocent ones around the world. Unfortunately, neither these politicians and nor journalists knowing what is what would dare to express their conscience.
    14. The inhumane acts and atrocities committed by Nazi China are far more vicious than that of Nanjing massacre in China during WWII committed by Japanese army, as Chinese government is using mysterious technologies to commit massacres to masses of bare-handed civilians around the world as well as launch violence and terrorist activities to suppress these completely unarmed people’s freedom of speech. These demons, like Hu, Jinag and Chinese Liberation Army, despise the chastity, dignity and precious life of those innocent ones and suppress the emotions of their beloved. Meanwhile, relying on the condition that most of people in the world will not be able to witness their vicious acts of violence and behaviors they have committed unscrupulously and shamelessly, these Chinese Liberation Army enjoys using cruel ways to torture, massacre and trample on these innocent people, physically and mentally, in one free world. The arrogant Hu, Jiang and those jackals nurtured under such ferocious power treat themselves as the symbol of benevolence and hero, as they fail to learn their gutless and vicious acts to trample on those innocent people. If these demons, butchers and dregs of human, such as Hu, Jiang and Chinese Liberation Army who have become frenzied and conscienceless appeared in the site of Nanjing massacre in WWII, they definitely would be the leading roles to act atrocities!
    15. We don’t want to see masses of innocent people to fall victim to the hell on earth built by red China where they will be susceptible to tortures and massacres for thousands of years.
    16. Despite being even unable to fend for themselves in face of the high-tech detriments and attacks from China, we can not tolerate the fact that these politicians and journalists will become the accomplices to help China commit its terrorist acts and suppression on these innocent people in the current era or an unknown future.
    17. In view of the notorious, vicious and sinister Hu, Jiang, Chinese Liberation Army with blood-stained hands, we just cast doubt over whether these greats of knowing what is what who have negotiated with these demons will show their conscience to save these innocent civilians or will act just for the sake of their profits, or are under the control of China. In this current drowned world, how will these innocent lives be treated in face of the atrocious acts committed by these diabolical figures, or when these innocent people will witness the practice of democracy in China? Will these phenomena turn out to be the joint efforts and endeavors achieved by China and those powerful figures in the world? Are we really dedicated to overturning such adversity? Our goal is to eliminate the vicious power one day with our strenuous efforts, and we absolutely will achieve it!

  22. We had that same situation last year in K. Some filthy nasty little creep of a boy sat behind my little Miss G and called her fat head and stupid. She would get off the bus crying "my head is not fat". I raised ALL KINDS OF HELL. BTW, most of the buses now are equiped with cameras and you can demand a playback if they have one. Would be horrible to watch but if they see this kid talking to yours and then K getting upset, you may be able to nail the little creep...which you totally should.
    On second thought, I'm on my way. I'll meet you at the bus stop in the morning to deal with this crap...it's a long drive but it's worth it.

  23. Good Lord, L...not K. I was one alphabetical letter off. I was all sorts of fired up. Plus? That crazy comment above mine about the Communist Chinese government and all the business about electromagnetic waves used to contain criticism and harm innocent human lives? Sorta freaked my shit out.
