Re: There's nothing holy about that child...
Well, to update, his parents moved to another school district because they were tired of said child getting into trouble.  <sigh>

There's nothing holy about that child...
...because he is quite intelligent enough to know how far he can go. And he knows that he's always saved from punishment because of his "disease" or "malfunction" or whatever you want to call it. And I hate to think about the rude awakening his parents will have when they finally realizes what he has been doing!

Holy crap!!!
My sister used to be a substitute and she has stories to curl one's hair as well.  It seems discipline is entirely lacking in the homes and simply not allowed in a school setting.  As for winning them over, maybe that only happens in the movies.

Re: Sounds like an Austin Powers fan, carriemarie. All you have to do is steal
LOL, I wish I could steal it.  It seems that I have a lot of students in my classrooms that act like Fat B*stard.  Wafting, wafting....:)

Re:
Hi!  Actually he was suspended for hitting me, then came back with an aide.  When she turned her back he tried to push someone off the stage I teach on, was suspended again. Then suddenly his family moved.  I think he needs reevaluated for the violence, that's for sure!

Ouch!!!  Of course, the parents won't do anything, but even the principal didn't back you up?  When we grew up a trip to the principal's office was a thing to be dreaded and then when you got home you got it from your parents.

However, Asperger's does not make a kid violent.  So are you keeping this kid in a corner til he learns to behave--or is that allowed?

his mojo.  LOL. Seriously, though, it's little cretins like this that make teachers want to hang it all up.  And your protection?  The knowledge that he wasn't on his meds and that his overly permissive parents (driven by guilt and nonpresence) will do absolutely nothing to help rectify the situation -- not even apologize for having created that little monster...

Great post and welcome to Blogit...

Diary...

Crikey!  I am glad I am not in the unenviable position of not being able to defend myself from someone with serious issues!  I do not envy your situation!  Good luck...keep writing.  Mari

This is some experience. Wouldn't know how to handle it.
Would be interesting to read other bloggers' responses as well.
