It is hard for parents to figure out that a teacher can bully a student either because they find it hard for a certified teacher to do so or because they are not aware that this can happen.
A student who returns home feeling bad about the day because his teacher treated him in a bad way may talk with his parents about what happened and their parents might accuse the kid of being the reason why his teacher treated him that way because they believe that it is hard enough for a teacher to bully a student and that bullying is among students in the school.
This doesn’t mean that teachers are always bullies, but it can mean to consider that a teacher might be the reason why your kid is feeling bad by going to school because a teacher is a bully.
You must have an open conversation with your kid so that he can feel safe when he talks about what happened at school from his/her teacher. You also should consider that a teacher could be the reason why he feels bad when he returns home.
A kid has no power to put limits for the teacher and this should be done by an adult which can be his mother or father. Talking to other kids in the same class can make the picture of a bully teacher clearer so that a mother can know if this teacher is a bully or not.
There are several reasons a teacher cannot be known as a bully when a mother go talk to the principle of the school, which are:
- He don’t know that the teacher is a bully
- He hide that his teacher is a bully
- He put the blame on the kid and that the kid needs a professional help because it is a more reasonable reason
In these cases she should have some evidence for the teacher while bullying so that it can prove that to the principle.
When the mother is sure that the teacher is a bully she can be one of the following:
- Changing his class and making sure this teacher doesn’t give in the other class
- Changing the school to another school or to a home school
By doing so, a mother is protecting her kid from treatment that can affect his life after that and this is a way to take extra care for her kid in school.
