I do not understand boys. thank you came home from school with a black eye forming. Seems he and a friend were arguing about some tv show, no clue what as yet, and A, the other boy, grabbed his hair really hard. thank you grabbed his shirt to get him to let go. A then let go and punched him in the eye. thank you has NEVER been punched. He is incredibly upset and hurt. Emotionally hurt even more than physically. He does NOT want me to go talk to A's parents. He wants to talk it over tomorrow and see what happens. husband will talk to him to see if we can get more of the story, and then we may allow him to try to work it out on his own, as is his preference. It goes against my nature to do that, but guys deal with this differently than girls. I am greatly disturbed. thank you does NOT want to press charges, but this kid need to know that if it ever happens again, I WILL call the cops and I WILL insist on pressing charges. If for no other reason than to have therapy mandated. It was not on school grounds, but on the way home, so school doesn't have to be involved, thank heavens.
