1. During music (I was not there), one of my boys was swinging his arms (not part of music class) and hit another boy in the mouth with a clenched fist. I'm sure it was unintentional, but the principal's response was to say that it was an accident and the arm-swinger should be provided more personal space. 2. One of my boys said "F.U." to another boy because a third boy told him to. The principal talked to him and said he cried so he had learned from the experience.

Do you think these situations were handled well?

Thanks, Judy
