AM - for what it's worth, I'd report it to the police.  I don't know if it's the same up in Canada as it is here in the US, but it couldn't hurt to have a record of the incident just in case something else were to happen.   Undecided

*hugs* to you and your boy!

I agree w/ cookies.

My sister had a similar encounter--she was rollerblading w/ a friend, and this gang of girls jumped her.  B/c she was on rollerblades, she couldn't get her balance and run/skate away, so they gave her a good plummeling.  She was really freaked out by the encounter (previously thinking that she could "handle" it if something ever happened).  I think talking w/ the police about it made her feel like it was a little more in control, although she was still pretty freaked out.

File a report. It's really important to prevent it from escalating. Sad

Thanks you guys for letting me vent, I talked to the RCMP and the school.  The kid in question ended up being suspended which I hope will be enough consequence for his actions to make him back off(this bunch of kids are an odd mix of gansta wanna be's/high scholastic acheivers)  I definitely think a record of some kind with the RCMP is a good thing, in case anything else happens.  This would be the fun(??) part of being a parent, I don't know if its worse being a teenager or the parent of one.  Hard being a kid these days though......

So hopefully I can continue on with my projects tonite or tomorrow.  I'm thinking of making some different style address books with the trusty bind it all.  and some new collagey jewelry....

Sounds like the school is really on the ball and keen to take action in these circumstances which is very good for your son. If they're high achievers they may have just been trying their luck (unfortunately on your son) but likely won't want it to affect their school record, so the suspension will have probably brought them to their senses. Hopefully that will be the end of it!

I can't wait to see your collage jewellery, you make some beautiful collages!

Poo, my old PC has broken! To be fair it was only a matter of time though, poor thing. I've finished the set of sweetie inchies I was working on and have some general ones, but I can't take pictures until I load the software onto my laptop...and I have no clue where it is! Undecided
