She got head butted in school by a boy for not giving him an Ipad straight away. She got blown to the floor but got up, then 10 mins later in literacy she was white as a sheet and having trouble talking. Teacher said "are you ok" and she fainted on to the floor. Woke up about 5 mins later and saw 3 of the teacher. I was called and DD was taken down the stairs but felt like she was falling. Friend brought down her stuff and she fainted again, this time she kept apologising when she woke up. Took her to a&e and she has been in and out of a sleep, fainting, being sick and crying since. This happened on Friday and She is still in hospital. I am so worried as I know she thinks its her fault. In between sleep she keeps apologising and crying and being sick, she faints when she stands up.If anyone has support I would be grateful as this probable isn't the usual concussion
At least it sounds like the boys dad is taking it seriously. He made an effort to apologise and bring her a gift. Hopefully it is followed up with punishment of his child and possibly a referral for anger issues.
I think this is a matter for the police too. Very violent behaviour from a school boy over something trivial aswell, this needs to be nipped in the bud now, there needs to be action to make sure he doesn't carry on with these behaviours in the future. I would also be expecting the school to punish him heavily aswell.
I hope your daughter recovers soon and she gets back to her own bed, and you yours. There's nothing like your own bed!
We have a boy at our school who was expelled from his previous school for head butting a girl (he is 14) - he has to travel from the next county!! I would expect nothing less for the boy who has done this to your daughter.
I'm so sorry, how frightening. Hope your dd recovers soon.
Obviously headbutting is far from OK, and I too would expect the boy to be punished (and to make a personal apology or at least write a letter, not just hide behind his dad), but I am a little at all the baying for police involvement for an 11yo boy. I think it's vicious and inappropriate. A child who headbutts at that age needs help and guidance, not terrifying out of his wits. Of course what OP is going through is horrendous, but pursuing vengeance will not make her dd well.
Do they know why she keeps going in and out of consciousness? Have they done repeated CT and MRI scans and the such?
I would still make a formal complaint about the boy as it could've been a lot more serious and he needs to learn you can't do that to someone. If he is 11 too he should know a lot better about headbutting people.
I am here for hand holding and I don't know where you are but if you need anything just PM me and I will see what I can do.
She has had a significant head injury. She should have a MRI scan and you must make sure the doctors know exactly what happened. Please document everything and inform the police. Log everything with the school. It may be months before she recovers.
My dd had a head injury at school. the school didn't take it seriously at all. It was 5 months before she was able to go back to school. She was very poorly indeed.
