What to do?
My oldest son is currently going to a Christian private school, which we all loved but the last couple of months have been really rough. He has been getting bullied at school. I have talked to his teacher and the principal and that particular kid has stopped. Lately, the same kid has gotten other kids involved to pick on my son. My son is not a wimpy-type kid. He is passive, generous and kind. He is pretty easy to take advantage of due to personality. The problem is that he goes through all grades with this same set of kids, there is only one class per grade. He won't ever be able to meet new kids or get away from these kids. He has been standing up for himself but it seems to only make matters worst. Most kids love recess, he has now begun to hate it. It is very sad. I have considered public school but my son really enjoys the Christian education. He has been with these kids for 2 years now and has made some good friends too. I really don't know what to do. I want him to decide but since he's never been to public school, he doesn't know what it is like. I went to public school so I know how different it is. There are pros and cons with public and private schools. I want him to have a good education but I also want him to be happy. (As happy as he can be considering he has to go to school. Most kids don't like going to school, right?)He's going to experience bullies anywhere he goes, sad but true. What to do?
