As parents, we all what the best for our children, and there’s nothing more heartbreaking than hearing your child tell you something bad about their day. Bullying is real, and unfortunately, some children don’t want to go to school because of it. Many parents have found ways to take matters into their own hands when it comes to bullies.
Christian Tinsley has a daughter who attends Niguel Hills Middle School in Laguna Niguel, California. Her daughter has told her repeatedly that some of the boys at school were bullying her and that one was even sexually harassing her.
Tinsley contacted the school to let them know about the problem. The school investigated the situation, and the boy accused of sexually harassing her daughter was suspended from school.
That wasn’t enough. Tinsley’s daughter said the bullying actually got even worse.
It all came to a head when Tinsley drove her daughter to school on Tuesday morning. Her daughter was crying and begging not to get out of the car. That’s when mama bear mode kicked in.
No parent wants to see their child mistreated, and Tinsley felt that she had to do something. She told CBS Los Angeles, “I think that sometimes when you’ve done everything you can do the way you’re supposed to do it, and it hasn’t been resolved, then sometimes as a parent…you have to decide if you’re going to go a step further and deal with any consequences.”
What did she do? She marched into the school and threatened all of the children in her daughter’s second period classroom. The incident was captured on cell phone video, and is now getting a lot of attention.
Tinsley has been banned from the school, but she doesn’t regret standing up for her daughter.
