It's nice to see a bit of follow-up on this story. Too often, people just have a knee-jerk reaction to side with the kid. But now that I've heard the other side of the story, that he's repeatedly been told to leave the girl alone but keeps on doing it, I don't blame the school at all. And honestly, the boy's mom needs to step aside from her knee-jerk mama bearism and think about why her kid is refusing to stop this behavior. Has a pedophile been doing stuff like this to him to "groom" him? Does he have some undiagnosed mental issue that leads to poor impulse control? Is he just being raised to be an entitled little brat who thinks he can do whatever he wants? This may be a wake-up call that heads off even bigger future problems.

The mother of this girl should be teaching her to defend herself not rely on the school or her big brother to step in. Apparently she didn't get her point across to the boy. I'm more worried about the girl than the boy because sooner or later someone he approaches won't go to the teachers but just pokes him and in most schools both will be suspended as unfair as that seems it happens...even self-defense isn't allowed in most schools any more. The mothers need to take both of these children to karate or judo classes...the boy to learn respect and the girl self-defense. Both mothers have failed to give their children what they need to survive in school these days. However, the sexual harassment was an unnecessary addition to the boy's record and will do far more harm in the future than these school administrators can imagine. I can't see ruining a child's life because he wanted to kiss a little girl. Way over the top punishment, suspension, fine...but noting the official school record like this will follow this child the rest of his life.
