We used to have a lot of trouble with aggression. Things have improved, but now and then there's a reminder to never let your guard down.... There's a bully in one of difficult child's classes. Apparently, this particular student tries the patience of all -- including the teachers. difficult child is small for his age and is a good target for bullies (so they think). The story goes that Bully was mouthing off, difficult child got tired of it, and told Bully he is annoying. Mr. Bully popped-off something to the effect, I dare you to make me stop. So, Mr. difficult child knocked the fire out of Mr. Bully..... Good thing difficult child's in the program that he's is or the police would have been called..... Both were confined to Isolated Instruction for the rest of the day..... I asked difficult child what the boy did after difficult child slugged him. difficult child said, "He just looked at me." All the big talk came to a screeching hault..... Do you have any idea how many times I've told difficult child, "Keep your hands to yourself?":wildone: I might as well talk to the wall.
