Diplomatic immunity se g*t!

Thomas is in a little school that’s a mini United Nations. They have Italians, Germans, Spaniards and Portuguese amongst others.

His two best friends are German and Italian. Last year the German was the favourite friend and this year the Italian is.

Now Thomas always comes home telling me how the German hit him or hurt him and I always check if he’s told teacher and if the German was punished. We’ve had a few playdates where I’ve seen the little guy in action and he does not play nice. I actually stopped our playdates because I couldn’t trust that I would not hurl him through the air.

And he does get punished. He usually gets a time out.

On Friday when we got home Thomas started crying that his ear was hurting. I asked him what happened and it turns out the German whacked him against the head with a plastic dolphin. I won’t tell you what exactly was going through my head but it was not nice.

DH reminded me that said German is the son of diplomats so I might want to reconsider my plans with him . . .

I retorted that when it comes to my son, no one has diplomatic immunity. I WILL deal with him.

Thank goodness I had a weekend in which to cool off. Yesterday, I spoke to Thomas’ substitute teacher (his teacher is on annual leave now) and made it very clear that I was not happy with the Diplomat and please can the Diplomat be separated from my son and please can she pay extra special attention to the SA-Germany relations from now on? Neither country can afford a diplomatic incident at the moment. And if they think Malema is dangerous, they have not seen this Mama Bear when her cub is in danger.

PS: I don’t hate Germans… some of my best friends are German. (Hallo Seb, Jen, Max, Naledi, Gunter, Karin, Susi, Frida, Robert, Bette, Matthias and Marlena.)

PPS: My son is no angel but he definitely does not hit/spit/bite/pinch anyone. Ask his teacher. πŸ™‚

    Glad to hear someone is willing to chuck international relations out the window when necessary (along with the affending child!).

    I think if this continues then maybe you should have a meeting with this kid’s parents and the teacher especially if it is getting out of hand. You hear of all sorts of violence in high schools and I think that this is where it starts. If parents let it go here then it will surely continue as they get older.

    Yikes, definitely no immunity for this little terror, his parents need to deal with it and deal with it now.

    Me too. Will watch closely. Cool thing about diplomats though is that by next year, they’ll be in a different country…

    Hehe, time to get the politicians in to sort things? I think I would’ve clobbered him with the dolphin if I was there to see it

    Eish, I was extremely tempted. My child is perfectly formed in every way. Not going to allow some terror to damage him.

    Not the nationality that’s my prob. His behaviour and the fact that if he’s not stopped now he’ll grow up with the immunity mentality and get away with lots.

    Like you said to Deblet – he’s gonna grow up with that ‘immunity mentality’!! Sounds like he’s already taking advantage of it at such a young age! Needs some intervention.
