This is about bullying!! That includes adults our kids are in contact with! That is how Whitegot brought into it!
And Lettuce.....you are right, bubullets have the social sites to hide behind and not have to indulge their true identity. "LETTUCE"

Yolanda, I did see that!!! This person is very brave using the name Lettuce!!!
I know I got off path with my comments, but I'm just trying to say what these teens have to add to everyday life. If authority figures think its OK to act this way, how are we going to get kids to stop acting this way!!! Your daughter is so beautiful, and should be remembered that way! I'm very sorry for people like Lettuce, they don't have a clue!!! Children deserve respect, and I can fight for her to get it without being their friend or a thug!!! I'm their parent, and with all the social networks, it is scary, but hard to know all that is going on with them at all times. If you need anything,and I can help I'm on Facebook, inbox me!!! Don't even give the negative comments your time. As I said above, I have talked with my kids and a few of their friends. Just like you have advised, I do at random sometimes, and use all things as learning lessons for them, drives them crazy, but I hope it stays with them and they hear my words when needed. God bless you a d your family!

Also, with disrupting each class at least 2 times being all intimidating calling down the kids with missing work and tardys is taking learning time away from my child. And taking students out of class missing much needed learning time. I don't get it, he is not someone my child feels is on her side at all!!! He is needed there for so many reasons, but not for so many as well. He can not treattthese kids like this. My child was very intimidated by high school, and being her first year, he did not help here nerves!!! So, if one of you above using a name that hides your identity is Mr. White, I would love for you to fell me I'm lying.
As for the homework sweep, a friend of mine witnessed one of them and wished she could have slapped herself out of her shock and video it!! He was in their face while they were made to line up, he then screamed like they were marines in there face threatening and spitting all over them. I know positively honor students get sent down with the same rant. I also told him if by any cha CE my daughter is she t to him for anything....he is to call me. She has my permission to respectfully take 2 steps back and ask him RESPECTFULLY to stay out of her personal space but she would be happy to speak with him in the issue at hand. I teach my kids to be respectful, but they need to be respected. He said he respected that. I also said if she is disrespectful, she would have way more to worry about if she was disrespectful then him. It is unacceptable and would be dealt with at home. He never said he doesn't do this. But then again, after all that, he didn't even know who we were talking about. Now....tell me I'm lying!
Lettuce.....unless you are Mr. White, how would you know? I also had a problem and had a 50 minute conversation with Mr. White about bullying my Honor student when she woke up late and was 6 minutes late to school, a first in the last 4 years. He screamed at her and threatened to send her home for the day. Said if it happend again, she was getting sent home. Needless to say, I left messages and emails for him to finally call me back 3 days later. After a 50 minute conversation on the phone, just when I thought we were getting some place, I got a funny feeling.....I asked him " Mr. White, what student are we speaking of?" He had no idea!!! I said in every message both of our names, and many times in our conversation.
To the Parker family, I pray for strength for you all to get through this terrible time. I talked with my children, and also their friends letting them all know I'm here if they ever need someone to talk to. I hate that others lead her to this choice.

I feel the same way about principal!! What do we do about it?? I don't get how he thinks its OK to great students like this. I had a conversation with him myself and told him my daughter distant feel like he would be someone she could talk to if she was in trouble, I also told him she would never feel safe too g to him, and all the teachers you talk to back him. I don't get it. One of his rants could just send an already unstable child over the edge. Either to hurt themselves or others!! This poor girl should have felt safe to go to someone at school for help.Bullies have to be stopped!! On the pprincipal note, I also spoke with Dr. Mitchem myself and he did not agree with these things White is doing, but said when he is in the school they don't happen. He even said he has talked to him about it.......something needs to be done!!

Kids make bad choices, kids we raise, kids we love, kids that are most of the time respectful. Not saying it was this kid, but they need to find out if he did or did not, if he did not, then their is someone out there that has done this. And as a parent of 2 teen girls, I would like the right man/kid paying for it. If it is not this young man, then we need to find out who. I agree with the above, his address should have never been put out there for all to see. He may have youngpeople living there, and I'm sure we have others out there that do not make good choices with having that info. For his friends and family, I hope he is not the one, I also pray for them if he is. No one wants to believe their loved one could do things like this, and they will need strength to get through. I see how the PD had no choice but to arrest him with both girls saying it was him. Now they can look into it better. Sorry for the family, but again as a parent of 2 teen girls, I want who ever it is to be found. If it is him, or someone else.
