You see back in April, we knew something was wrong in the way they were working and that is why we kept a log. I puposely kept it to the main points, not much emotion (Court's do not do emotions - just facts), wrote down times of calls etc. My husband also kept one which I will post soon. An important thing I have also noticed is God help kids at the weekend - because as you see Social Services do not 'do' weekends. Kids and families' problems must end early Friday evening and they are not allowed to resume until Monday morning. That's so the SS can have a well deserved rest after breaking up a family - it's a tough job but someone has to do it - I mean we don't want to promote happy, normal family life, it's simply no good for our career. You can just picture it now - feet up, glass of wine, a lonely existence, hey but what the heck, a nice bonus for their target figures.
Now back to the issue, not one person (except from us) has told my son his behaviour was disgraceful - in fact Social Services paid for him to go to a football club as a treat, now does that not send out mixed messages to an adolescent? So, instead of punishing him, were we supposed to say 'now, I loved the way you aimed your spit directly into her face, also you showed great multi-tasking skills as you hit her and at the same time called her a "f___ing muslim"', you know - the finding of good in everything they do? Well I'm sorry but I can't, I have nothing but disgust for his behaviour, it was inexcusable and not something he sees at home. So where is he learning this type of behaviour? - the only place that it can be is at school - so thank you for my son's new found skills they will get him far in life.
Over the last few months I have noticed that the education system is just as bad at dealing with 'bad behaviour'. No wonder you have a minority of students attacking teachers, they have no discipline or respect. The times have long gone where a teacher was in charge and the pupil's followed and we as a society have allowed this to happen. Why do school's have anti-bullying policies when they fail to adhere to them? When a child is identified as a problem, address the matter immediately, don't look for excuses or come out with statement's such as he's bullying children more vulnerable than himself so that's OK.
