Dealing with kids who blame each other for bullying

Discussion in 'Behaviour' started by sarahisfab, Nov 28, 2011.

  1. Everyday, I come across a student who complains about a student, I then investigate and the other student is blaming the other for picking on them.

    I never find out the entire truth regardless of witness statements and struggle what to do, which will suit both kids and Parents.

    Any advice??
  2. Don't bother with the investigation. Be clear.
    Someone has done/said something to you tell the teacher and they will be punished.
    If you call them a name / hit them / whatever, regardless of what you has been done to you, you didn't tell the teacher, you did swear / hit / insult therefore you will be punished.

    Obviously that is for minor incidents, more serious things need investigating but a simple policy of don't take the law into your own hands will work.
  3. Thank you, this is most helpful!
