It would depend on what happened, here where i live a kid can get suspended if another kid starts punching him and to defend himself he pushes the attacker away. Happened at my old high school all the time, happened to my friend. To avoid getting suspended in a situation like that he has to stay still and let the attacker keep punching him until a teacher stops it, if a kid stops the fight, they get suspended too.
If it was determined that my child did do something WRONG, I would feel angry and disapointed, seeing as how i was never even close to getting suspended it is hard for me justify it at all, i dont think its that hard to stay out of trouble.
If my child was, for example, pulling two kids away from a fight and sucessfully stopped it, or defended themselves, I would not be angry.
That's sick...not your friend's parents being gay, but the school staff for being homophobes that's not cool at all. Like, I can understand if they physically harmed you or something, but you have no right to suspend a child because of what her parents sexuality are/is. It's none of your business as in to take it into your own hands. I honestly think whoever suspended her and who ever was supporting the suspension should be fired from their position and not allowed to teach students, because they might start teaching kids how to hate other kids because of who they like which is wrong.
it depends on what they did and how old they were, but honestly if they were in HS and it was something like fighting or back talking a teacher, I would ask the circumsances, if it were defensive I wouldn't mind, I dont want my kids to not stand up for themselves.
I Would Question What Happened....That Is All You Really Can Do....Too Be Honest Alot Of The Schools I Went To Are Not Fair In The Whole Discipline Region.....A Girl From My School Was Expelled For Her Parents Being Gay.
I would be disappointed in my child, and I would be sure to express this disappointment to the child as well. If he/ she got suspended for something really serious, then I would also add my own punishment on top of this.
Make it a point that the child must learn from his mistakes. Kids make mistakes, it's how they learn so i wouldn't worry about it. I wouldn't be mad unless the child deliberitely knew what he was doing.
It depends on what they did.
