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.

  • No child would like to be bullied like that.
    I know a little girl aged 7 who was asked by a boy in her class if she would have sex with him.
    He admitted to asking her after the girl’s Grandma approached the school about it.

  • Only in America…. Seriously this is horrible and a totally harmless gesture. I’m more concerned at the bullying he received because of the note!

  • seriously this is poor form from the school – I bet the kids have no idea what is going on – harrassment – yes perhaps but sexual harrassment? It’s a cute little love note from a nine year old – I can only imagine what this is going to do for the little boys self esteem. I wonder if it will make him a different human being towards women when he is older?

    Why can our kids not be kids anymore?

  • We live in a world gone mad! Dear lord he’s 9 years old and looks like he’s experiencing his first crush. As long as he keeps the letters clean what is the problem?

  • I agree with MissChriss, it is a complicated issue and how all parties involved are affected is crucial. I know my 8 year old would not want any note from a boy like this handed to her in class, and if it happened more than once, she would feel very uncomfortable. The “niceness” of the note doesn’t justify the behaviour.

  • I can see how people think this is overkill on the schools part, but no where does it say how the little girl involved felt. I am only saying this as my 8yr has recently reached breaking point with a classmate over love notes that she has received over the last few months at school. If the child receiving the noted is made to feel uncomfortable and let’s their feelings be known and the notes continue then it is harassment, no matter the age. I don’t believe in charges tho, that’s silly, but children also need to learn boundaries even at this age, otherwise they grow up thinking they can do what they want. Just my opinion as I have seen the effects these innocent love notes have on an unprepared child who doesn’t want them. It’s a fine line I know, but all children should feel comfortable and safe at school. The bullying/teasing of the little boy in the story was wrong too and the school should be addressing that as well.

  • What stupid behaviour by the school, yes the world has gone mad, the poor boy won’t be able to write a loving note to anyone again he will be too afraid of being bullied and made fun of. Children should be allowed to be children and experience all the fun things of learning in every area of growth, it is only the adults dirty minds putting things onto children that never should even be considered an issue at all.
