A mother defended her daughter’s actions when the school tried to punish her for hitting a boy. The boy had repeatedly been pinging her bra even though the girl told him to stop. When she complained to a teacher, she was told to ignore it.
The situation escalated, and the boy was able to undo her bra – that is when the girl turned and hit him. The school (in its infinite wisdom) decided that the girl should be punished for hitting the boy.
Her mother reacted to the principal by saying that her daughter had been defending herself against a sexual attack. The mother added that if the one person in the room (the teacher) was not going to help her, what was her daughter supposed to do?
