In the class they have before mine, one of my boys decided to rip down the pants of another boy. Not as a funny joke they were both in on, but to humiliate him. He tore the kid’s pants and made him cry. In class. Because he felt like it.
On the long list of things I don’t understand about middle schoolers, that has to be the biggest one. What would possess you to pull down another kid’s pants? What has happened in your life that makes you think it’s a good idea to brutally humiliate someone in front of lots of other people? Did you realize even your classmates would report you because they all know that’s not okay?
The kid who did it got 2 days of in school suspension, and the other kid was allowed to go home. It’s been “handled”, but it’s still bugging me. I hate to think my kids are capable of that kind of meanness.
