Brian Metzger got fed up with a bully in his 6-year-old daughter’s kindergarten class. The Wisconsin man filed a restraining order against the 5-year-old who has allegedly been a terror in the classroom.
According to Wisconsin news station WISN12 Metzger’s daughter came home and told him that she had been threatened by a 5-year-old classmate who told her “I want to slit your throat and watch you bleed”…wait…WHAT?!?!? She also said that the little boy has been threatening other students throughout the year.
School officials refused to remove the boy from the class once they were notified according to the New York Daily News. After exhausting every effort possible Metzger decided to take the matter into his own hands and contact the police on May 12. He filed a report and the incident was classified as “disorderly conduct” due to the fact that the boy kicked the girl in the face and threw sand and rocks at her during their gym class. The following day school administrators removed the boy from the class room.
Metzger isn’t satisfied with simply having the child removed from the classroom, he wants to have him kicked out of the school and the school district. A spokesperson for the school says that they are trying to get the issue resolved with both families and want to ensure that they are providing a safe learning environment for all students.
As a parent you can never be too careful when it comes to the safety of your children. I commend Mr. Metzger for going the extra mile to protect his daughter. School administrators don’t always have as much concern for our children as we do, and sometimes we have to do things that can be considered as extreme to keep them out of harms way. More parents should get out here and fight against bullying in schools. Hopefully, this will set a precedent for parents to stand up for their children when they come home after being pushed around by someone at school.
