World gone crazy! Nine year old boy threated with sexual harassment over a love letter.
An innocent love letter passed from a nine-year-old boy to the girl he likes in class has caused a huge drama at a small Florida elementary school.
The young fourth grader is now being threatened with charges of sexual harassment. Problem is, he doesn’t even know what sexual harassment means.
The letter describes the girl as ‘pretty’ and ‘cute’ and says she has ‘eyes like diamonds’, but of course kids being kids, some of his class mates started making fun, saying that he wanted to see the girl naked.
That’s when the principal was notified, and an investigation was launched.
The boy’s mother is outraged over how her son has been treated.
‘That’s when the principal proceeded to tell me that it wasn’t appropriate that he was writing the note and that if he writes another note, they are going to file sexual harassment charges on my nine-year-old.’
The school district said that because the boy sent more than one letter the situation qualifies as harassment.
The district also said it discourages children passing notes because it is a distraction.
However the boy’s mother said it was a harmless gesture.
‘He’s nine – what little kid doesn’t write love notes?’
Poor kid! This is ridiculous and must be so embarrassing for him.
