Well, to be fair, it's not like the teacher could've fought back without facing dismissal, a lawsuit and jail time...

As the parent of a six year-old, 50 pound terror, I can assure you that the little bastard could do serious damage if he wanted to, especially to things like knees and testicles. The kids parents sound like idiots. "My poor son" indeed.

That said, teacher dude needs to man up if he is emotionally tormented by a six year-old. He sounds like he's trying to milk the system. The physical stuff I can understand, though.

As much as I'm inclined to make fun of his sissy girlyness, I have to imagine that having a kid be able to do literally anything to you and being completely unable to do anything about it for risk of lawsuits/job loss/prison would be incredibly frustrating.

It says that the kid starting kicking/hitting him, but when he tried to restrain him, the kid starting biting him. I'm not big on corporal punishment, but some kids need to have a date with a belt.

That first grader is the most foul, cruel, and bad-tempered kid you ever set eyes on. He's got a vicious streak a mile wide! He's a killer!
 
2012-10-01 09:48:43 AM
It's takes a real man to admit to that. It takes an idiot to tell everyone on the internets.

The thing is, if you use corporal punishment early and firmly, it goes away pretty quickly. I haven't spanked my kids in many years, and I doubt there will be a situation that calls for it until they're somewhere in the teens, and of course by then there are much more effective alternatives.

He came at him like a spider monkey?

Was he all jacked up on Mountain Dew?

turn him around, put him in a bear hug and restrain him. If you cant restrain a 1st grader you have issues.
 
2012-10-01 09:54:06 AM
Subby sounds like he's never had to deal with other people's dick kids. It probably does kinda f*ck with your head having someone do nothing but harass you all day, knowing you're not allowed to do anything about it unless you want to be either in prison or on the streets, unable to find a job (who's going to hire a child abuser?)

Braggi: turn him around, put him in a bear hug and restrain him. If you cant restrain a 1st grader you have issues.


Your suggestion, to anyone in an even remotely similar situtation, reads "Have yourself arrested for child abuse and possibly put on the sex offender's list, he can't get to you behind bars."

I agree with you but lets not forget that if they kid came out of that with even a single scrape or bruise that teacher would be fired, have has name ruined (along with all future employment prospects) and possibly charged with a crime.
 
2012-10-01 09:59:42 AM
He had go see a shrink for stress? Sounds like a pansy liberal.

Perhaps he just need TP for his bunghole, and he was feeling threatened.

No, it really doesn't.

I find it's the emotional damage the little bastards do that really takes away one's will to live.
 
2012-10-01 10:00:52 AM
BAH GAWD KING, THAT MAN HAS A FAMILY TO FEED!

Sorry, best I could come up with, but yeah, there isn't much the teacher could do to restrain the kid without facing charges and/or getting fired.

Rodrigo's mom said her son is now on medication so he can focus.

"He is getting help, and he is much better now," she said.


Nothing a little Ritalin won't fix!

/or maybe horse tranquilizers?

Webster, who played tailback for upstate Morrisville State College, said his doctor told him he had to stay away from work for several months because of his physical and emotional state.


Imagine my surprise when I read the article looking for this statement and found it.

People this has nothing to do with any actual damage caused by a child, this has everything to do with an individual finding an opportunity to get paid while on leave and took it.

Seriously, emotional state, this is a joke? An adult who becomes emotionally comprised after a child gets upset and aggressive shouldn't be a teacher in the first place.

The knee is one of the more fragile parts of the human body. It doesn't surprise me that a 50 pound little kid could do a lot of damage to it. My wife took one of those "female self defense" classes, and they were taught that one of the easier ways to disable a larger attacker was to kick his knee. It's a harder spot for someone to protect, you have two of them, and girls don't have to raise their legs as high to kick them. A big guy like that, with all his weight on that knee while he was stepping back after releasing the little brat, with his knee maybe damaged from his years playing football anyway... Yeah, I could see a 50 pound kid doing a lot of damage with a lucky kick. The mental anguish sounds like so much lawsuit padding bullshait, but the knee/ankle injury could be very real.

Yeah, my kid accidental broke a couple of my ribs while we were playing around when he was 4, so it can happen heh.

This. The kid could literally start chewing on the teacher and if he comes home with a hair out of place look out. Teachers might be legally allowed to spank a kid but that doesn't mean the board would approve.

Im sure it has more to do with the fact that he cant fight back against the child than because he is legitimately afraid of someone 20% of his size.

It's a good thing then he's getting paid leave for the next few months.

The psychological fear a child can instill in a grown adult is very potent due to the power and mental fortitude children possess.

Have you ever seen a child start to throw a temper tantrum!?!? Jesus it's like they become the Hulk and have infinite strength and shiat. This teacher is just lucky he escaped with his life!!

It's almost as if adults have are powerless when it comes to interacting with children!

Yep, and I say good for him.

Sure, you're going to have to deal with being the butt of some jokes for a while, but the school isn't going to listen to anything unless you hit them where it matters -- the wallet.

Fark them for allowing this kind of situation to develop, where one party has no way to defend himself without getting fired, arrested or both.

Oh, and fark the parents of this little shiat, too.
 
2012-10-01 10:19:27 AM
Teacher guy has the facts on his side - he clearly was physically attacked by the boy - but is the city liable? Where are all of Fark's semi-employed lawyers when you need them?

Sooooooo why is it we're so quick to believe a 5 year old was able to physically assault a 220 lbs. ex-football players so sever that is cause mental distress.

Are you really asking me to believe that an ex-football player was psychologically shaken by a 5 year old throwing a temper tantrum however the same teacher was able to handle being a football player in high school.

I don't know, maybe it's just me, but I would think somebody who played high school football would be able to handle a 5 year old child's "temper tantrum" without bearing much psychological damage.

Have you seen how high school teenagers treat one another these days?

Seriously people, critical thinking skills.

I bet the fact that the boy looks like a "brown" person has nothing to do with the calls of hatred against this boy and his family huh guys and gals :]

On the one hand, lawsuits are what make injury claims move; he was seriously injured on the job and obviously workman's comp isn't taking care of his problem. School policies put him in this situation, and the school is part of the city. While his "emotional state" may seem like horse-sh*t padding to his tort, it isn't so much that he's all shaken from the injury, but instead that he, a powerful man is ultimately defenseless in his job from pipsqueak kids.

On the other hand... wow this is really embarrassing and has to diminish his dating prospects.

I have a passel of kids myself and allow me to assure you that they, like wild animals will summon 100% of their strength with little regard for themselves or others in all sorts of inappropriate situations. Thinking adults simply don't do this and I've found it difficult to acclimate to.

Of course, things like this happen when you do everything "for the kids." You wind up being governed by them.

This.

I could understand suing for the out of pocket cost of physical therapy (most insurance only gives you $1080, which doesn't last long). That would make sense if the kid farked up his knee.

"Emotional stress" sounds like he's milking it for all it's worth.

CSS:

NYC has a depressingly considerable number of young children who are already so crazy that they need to be institutionalized. Back when I was in training, there was a 6-year-old boy there who was institutionalized after he tried to kill his psychiatrist. He tried to strangle her, and hurt her pretty bad. It took three grown men to get him off of her. She was fighting back, too, but the kid had the strength of the truly crazy.

So yeah, it can happen, and I can guess that it might freak out a teacher to see a kid that crazy.

Man you'd think it was a lack of education and teaching of how to healthily express emotions?

But nawww, it's these darn kids these days!

Their just spoiled little brats, they just don't know how good they have it!

Why in my day I had to walk to school, up hill, in the snow............

According to the article, the kid did literally start chewing on him. Kid has become a zombie and the gym teacher is possibly infected, shoot them both to be sure before it spreads! Make sure the kid's parents are included, they've probably also been bitten!

When you cant hit back or restrain him in any meaningful way, it can add up, so it's plausible.

Try again, snowflake, or parent of snowflake.

So he is a former college football player who got his ass handed to him by a 50 lb. 6 year-old? I'm surprised the Vikings didn't draft him out of school.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Corporal_punishment

Corporal punishment of minors within domestic settings is lawful in all 50 of the United States and, according to a 2000 survey, is widely approved by parents.[2] It has been officially outlawed in 32 countries.[3]

Man I wonder how all those adults in those 32 countries where Corporal Punishment has been outlawed manage to keep control of their children without being able to resort to striking them back or corporal punishment?

Hmmmmmmm ....... I wonder?
