Look People please, if you are going to do posts about educational issues, at least try and sound like you are educated. That's the only way anyone is going to take your post seriously. Look, Stop the madness. The child in question needs direction. He has always been supported in his wrong by his family and at this rate it is only a matter of time before this type behavior, both on behalf of the child and the grandparent, leads to a future of encounters with the juvenile justice system. There comes a time in every child's life when parents/grandparents have to allow the child to have to learn from their mistakes. Any other actions, are enabling, handicapping. For that child to say he did not know what it was he had in his hand, is comical. All I will say is, "I know the child in question." This is not racism. The cry of racism is smoke and mirrors. If it was racism when he got in trouble, it was racism long before he got in trouble, why was the whistle not blown before now? Grandma, it is imperative that every young man learns life lessons. He understands the lessons of family supports family, family loves family, however, the need for him to learn that actions have consequences is going to help him just as much as either of them. Love sometimes mean, we have to do things that that defies family logic. Good luck in your future endeavors.
