Mom Not Upset With Son For Being Suspended After Beating Up A Bully
If your child has even been suspended before, chances are you’ve probably felt a bit angry at them. After all, usually that means that your child was acting up. However, when one mom named Allison’s son got suspended, she wasn’t mad at all. Here’s why.
Allison Davis’s son, Drew, has been bullied many times at his school. However, she says that the school never did anything to help.
“Not once has the school ever punished the kid that has threatened and bullied Drew over and over,” she explained in a Facebook post. “In middle school Drew was afraid to walk down the halls because a swarm of this kid and his minions would make fun of and threaten Drew. He quit talking to the adults about it because they never disciplined the bully and it just made the situation worse. “
Allison explained that Drew has been made fun of, threatened, and even videotaped as it was all happening. Allison had sent the school a long email explaining her concerns and “begging them to do something,” she explained. She told them that Drew couldn’t avoid it, since the bully was in most of his classes, but all the school did was have him and the bully sign a no contact contract.
“I’m pretty sure I rolled my eyes,” Allison said. “And, like Drew I gave up on trying to get the school to actually do something that would stop this kid from bullying Drew.”
That’s why when Drew was threatened once again, he decided to take action into his own hands. “Three punches and his bully screamed like a baby, his minion friends shut up, and this morning the bully wouldn’t even look at him. Problem solved,” Allison proudly wrote on her post.
Most people agreed with her, especially since Drew had no adults to rely on to do anything about the bullying.
“Look…. I’m for nonviolence… Until it is necessary. And the problem with bullies is that they think they have the upper hand cuz we choose peace. We choose peace for, not for us cuz we’re scared. You keep messing with the lamb you gone get the lion,” someone wrote.
“Sometimes there is a price to pay for doing the right thing. This kid has integrity and courage,” another said.
“I agree violence isn’t the answer but your son was patient for a very long time and schools don’t do what they should. I would be proud of him for sticking up for himself,” someone else commented.
What do you think about how Drew responded to being bullied, and how the school handled it?
