How do you handle bullying with food allergies?
A recent incident at my child's school has led me to these thoughts, although always been a topic of discussion with school staff.
Say a child just threatens your child verbally. "I have peanut butter on my hands and am going to get you...etc" Turns out child said was lying and didn't have anything on their hands.
What should/could the school do? How would you approach this if it were your child? What should the punishment be for something like this?
I feel there should be [b]no tolerance[/b]. In my opinion, a verbal threat is a threat and bullying. Just as mental/emotional abuse is just as harmful as physical abuse, kwim?
In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.
