I have a situation that I haven’t seen you address here yet. It’s bullying. I am the mother of a special-needs, high school boy. Todd is a really sweet kid with not a mean bone in his body. It’s the fact that he is so gentle that really burns me up about this.
For several years now, there is one boy in his grade, Tyson, who delights in teasing him. He’s really very cruel about it too.
I have spoken to the school about it and they promise they are going to address it but I’m still waiting.
My question is what should I do? Tyson’s mother knows what’s going on but he’s a bit of a problem child to she’s adopted a hands off approach.
Should I call her? I don’t want to make it worse for Todd by calling Tyson’s mother but this is breaking my heart.

Well that just sucks and I’m sorry you and your son are having to go through this. But you need to know this is a situation that will not get better on it’s own, so you need to take action. So take a look at the following video; it’s what I would do if I were in your shoes.
