Those that know me know that I've had some problems with another little boy in Jasper's class, been going on too long to be honest and I detailed some of it here
Cut a long story short, the latest episode involved the other boy sending Jasper a note saying "I hate you and your family, from........" not spelt like that but definitely autographed. To be fair I don't think Jasper saw it, I got to it first, but finally I had some evidence!
This child has been at Jasper since they were in Reception and they are now in Year 3. The school had never told the other kids dad of the problems, and Jasper wasn't the only victim. Following this message I wrote to the school and said I wanted to ensure this was dealt with and as a minimum that his dad was made aware.
Lo and behold they finally did and all credit to the dad, since he was hauled in - for the first time - all the bullying has stopped! If they had only done it at every incident the boy would have realised he couldnt get away with everything! (IMHO)
Previous to this, our last meeting with the dad ended up with me being threatened in the nursery playground! All very horrible! Today I saw them all rock up at Ver Park eek! It transpires that Jasper and said boy are now best friends - of course - and he was off playing football with the boys and their dad. After a few uncomfortable moments I decided to make a gesture - fed up of the awkwardness in the school playground every day - I walked up to the dad and asked if the kids could have a jammie dodger - he was clearly shocked but answered that was fine, though 1 of them didn't like jam - so I went and distributed treats.
Truce broken, awkwardness dealt with I hope! These kids are together at least another 3 years, and there is going to be a sibling in Scarlett's class too. I don't want to be the guys friend, but am happy to take the higher ground!
