Comments like this are so deeply rooted in our society as normal, this is not acceptable. This has to stop.

 I heard it I knew that is where it begins. That statement is where the idea that hurting is flirting begins to set a tone for what is acceptable behavior. My four year old knows "That's not how we show we like someone. That was not a good choice."
In that moment, hurt and in a new place, worried about perhaps getting a shot or stitches you were a person we needed to help us and your words of comfort conveyed a message that someone who likes you might hurt you. No. I will not allow that message to be ok. I will not allow it to be louder than "That's not how we show we like each other." At that desk you are in a position of influence, whether you realize it or not. You thought you were making the moment lighter. It is time to take responsibility for the messages we as a society give our children. Do Not tell my 4 year old who needs stitches from a boy at school hitting her "I bet he likes you." NO.

Agreed, that is really disgusting, whoever that was needs to be whipped, well not really but that's how I feel.. it makes you want to tear that person in pieces, because they're being such a piece of shit....

That's the most stupid thing to say to that little one.

I hope she is healing and getting her confidence back.

If I had children... and they went to her school... I'd send them on an errand of payback and tell them to tell the administrator to give me a call... and I would tell him / her that someone else had to make a better example first !

Had that been my classrom and I have had this happen! If I had permission to spank-they got it 

if not-I called the kids parent or legal guardian-IMMEDIATELY after he/she hurt another kid!

9/10 (literally) the abuser's parent came to school and the kid was paddled in front of the class or taken to a school couselor with the parent!

The author is right-that needs to be handled immdeiately!
