last thought on the situation today
I'm still really pissed off that the principal brought up the fact that I am divorced. His exact words were:
P:I didn't realized you are divorced...
me: since remarried...
P: well, we see this type of behavior often with children of divorce. They are looking for attention from their mothers.
So he was claiming that either DJ is making things up to get attention, that I don't give him enough attention, or both. I said:
The other boy who is being bullied, his parents aren't divorced. At that point, the principal changed the subject.
The Norwegian Blogger came up with something very interesting:
Meanwhile the general corruption of the educational system, or to be honest society at large, never tells people "There's something wrong with you" (unless they are conservatives), but always says "YAY! GO YOU!" and deliberately tries to bolster their self-esteem, this triggers pride and high self esteem, and when they get in touch with the real world they lash out at anyone and anything that challenges their own high self-image.
So then you combine the bureaucratic tendency with that of the ideologue, combined with an overwhelming sense of pride, and you have something out of Kafka, now let me explain how things goes with bullies, pay attention now children because this is how it works according to the Norwegian Blogger:
Now go check out the table he made to show the different responses to a bully situation.
Anyhow, enough of this today. It's giving me a headache.
