So, yesterday a kid at the high school where my daughter attends gave my daughter a couple presents. I guess they were belated Christmas presents. One was a Lego set, and the other was a pair of throwing knives.

Apparently it was mentioned in a passing conversation some months back that my daughter has never had a Lego set (not true) and that "if [she] were to have any ninja skill, she'd like to be able to throw knives".

So, this kid thought it appropriate to get her a these two gifts.

I couldn't possibly care less that he gave her these gifts. Except that he brought the knives to school, which is (as you can imagine) a no tolerance issue; knives are banned from school property and the penalty for bringing them onto school property is expulsion.

Some additional facts:
The gifts were wrapped.
My daughter had no idea what the gifts contained.
She opened them on school property shortly before boarding the school bus for home.
Two of my girls agree this kid is "socially awkward".
This kid likes my girls because they are nice to him (likely when other kids are not).

Now, I have had only limited contact with this kid in the past. He seemed mildly annoying yet nice enough. I am fairly certain his intentions were good. My worry is that he or others aware of the transaction will mention something to the school officials and that the result will be a battle to defend my daughter from expulsion. I don't trust the current principal as far as I could throw her.

How would you proceed? Do/say nothing?

Private School?

I just got to thinking about the Tonya thread. She didn't report it at the time and look what happened to her?


You are aware that your daughter had contraband on school property. Don't matter now, the wheels are in motion.

I'd be homeschooling or private school and avoid this nonsense. Times a changing.

If anything can go right, it will go right and at the best possible time.

How old is your daughter? How much can the kids be trusted to exercise their right to "remain silent"? How many kids other than the boy and your daughters know about it?

My first option would be to not create a problem where none exists, yet.

If it starts to get out of hand concentrate on protecting your daughter. She didn't know there was contraband on school property until she was leaving school property. That should be a defence, but in today's insane school systems who knows.

At this point, this is what I would do. I presume the knives have been removed from school property, and no "authority" saw them on school property, correct?

That is my concern. I don't think I'm making a mole hill into a mountain. I have seen similar happen. If my daughter (she is 15) were to get expelled over this stupidity, her hopes of entering the running start program go to zero. That's a pretty big deal. My first inclination is to do nothing further, just prepare for the worst. My daughter was going to text the kid not to mention anything about it (I have no idea who all knows or what this kid might say or who he would tell), and I told her not to say a word as to some idiot it could look like she was trying to cover something up.

I assume you realize that as soon as you tell the school administration your daughter is innocent the next question will be "How did she come into possession of the knives?"

That will lead to the "socially awkward" kid getting in HUGE trouble. I know this is not your concern, but how with that effect him? (expulsion, other kids not nice to him, amplifying his awkwardness to himself and others, his relationship with your daughter and her friends, etc)

Sometimes a little problem can become a HUGE problem, when you try and fix it.

My advice:

Mums the word. Your daughter may want to let him know that, then ride the tide. If the school raises an issue and it affects your daughter's education just walk away and seek other education options. The powers that be will not let you win, they can't keep control if they do. Control is the most important issue to them, it isn't your child or your child's safety.

Never let school get in the way of your education. She will still be what she is going to be, do not let this become a hindrance for her. Dragging it out and making her the center of controversy, then losing anyway, will not enhance her education. She just needs to understand you can't walk away from every battle, but you can choose the ones you fight.

IMO do not text, have the conversation in private, write nothing.

What is your relationship with the school superintendent? Maybe schedule a sit down and explain it and ask for advice, and if your state is a one party consent, record the conversation secretly. You will be covered for the future, your daughter will be covered too. She told you, you told school.

Superintendent may want to follow up or not. But suppose awkward kid comes to school with something even more deadly? You and your daughter would fry.

Unfortunately for you, "just wait and see" makes you culpable being that you have knowledge and did not inform the school. That is what got Tonya in trouble, ruined her career too.

It might even be worth speaking to an attorney, too. I don't think that will matter though, your daughter was in violation, and regardless of the circumstances, when you found out did not take appropriate action to keep all the little kiddies safe.

But the way it should be handled, the school should start teaching gun safety and other martial arts.

Edit: You may also want to include goofy kid and his parents. All go to the super discretely. That way the kid can actually learn from it.

If anything can go right, it will go right and at the best possible time.

If you need/have to, you could withdraw her from the school prior to any possible expulsion. I do not know what the resulting details may be. If it comes to that you may wish to consult an attorney.

I don't envy him either. Kids can, through no fault of their own, sometimes bring about some awkward and difficult issues. All you can do is handle it the best you know how and try to make sure the appropriate life lessons are learned from it.

Wow.......
I like Scouts ideas.
Mum's the word. Now, is the time to explain to your daughter(s) when fibbing is acceptable.
I would probably have a private conversation with the boys parent(s).
Not to complain, but to inform..... The boy appears to have nothing but good intentions, and compliments to your girls for being kind hearted.
The "LEFT" is not kind or intelligent.
Best of luck, my friend.

Zero tolerance policy most likely

So who is right or to blame or who new what may be irrelevant

The school administration can put an irrevocable black mark on her record that will haunt and follow and effect her for years and may effect college admissions

One dem lib prog alt left parent hears about it and goes to the authorities or the press is a worse case scenario

Just to be a devils advocate - not judging.

First of all, as long as no teacher saw her in possession of the knives on school grounds it didn't happen.

Secondly, I would talk to the kid (I assume it's a boy) and tell him/her that it was very nice of him to gift these things to your daughter but it was a risky thing to do that could have resulted in them both being expelled from school.

Additionally, I would warn them both about never mentioning the knives at school thing and just let it pass.

It's hard to get mad a a socially awkward kid for trying to be nice to someone.

Just my two cents.

See something say something is the taught mantra now

And kids have phones with cameras and the school has cameras and some buses have cameras

And kids live via text and pics - information propagation at light speed

Again just food for thought

While my advice would be the same without the quote of your statement; with that quote and the circumstances you detailed, I would not be proactive in going to the school and kick starting what could turn out to be a real inquisition!!!! Unless there are a lot of Smartphone pictures; everything is hearsay.

Just get your ducks in a row and work with your daughter to know who the fair witnesses to event are; then drop it and go back to enjoying life, don't let it eat at you or your family!!!!!!

Hope it all works out for the better!

I have to agree. It would be hard for the school to prove it now even if someone says something. Hard to expel on hearsay. Follow up with the boys parents as an FYI. Move on

So crazy... Not that long ago, I had a Buck 110 on my belt in high school every day. Many of us had guns in our vehicles to go shooting after school. Not too long ago friend of one of my daughters got in trouble because he had been helping his grandmother move and one of the boxes in the back of his truck had a steak knife in it... oh the horror.... He didn't even know what was in the boxes, just moving em for grandma...



Good luck on the running start program. Here they call it Move On When Ready... My youngest did it Junior and Senior year. She Graduated HS with enough hours to be a soph0m0re. She and her older sister (Miss I need to change majors and switch to a 5 year Architecture program) will graduate at the same time...

As said before no texts or emails. These things last forever and could be used against your girl. Other than that I would not worry about it. As long as your girl and the gift giver are the only ones aware and they don't say anything to anyone else it never happened. I would either have your daughter talk to the kid or do it yourself and explain the need for discretion. Good luck.

Talk to the kids parents to make them aware of his actions without alarming anyone that this might be a bad situation.

The parents know more about their kids mental health than any one else.

As it stands no one can prove the knives were ever at the school. Kids take, lie, fib, stretch the truth. so reliability of testimomy is always questionable.

Agreed that we live in a very screwed up world and that one can never be too careful.

However, I can't imagine that the schools policy includes expulsion based on suspicion.

The only way that they can prove anything is if you provide the evidence by going to a school official with 'this is what happened' - you'll establish her guilt.

Of course the other option is for the school to question your daughter, in which case I would think she could say 'I have done nothing wrong and have nothing further say without my father being here'.

Of course if you do speak to the school at that point, reminding them of the 5th amendment would cover it wouldn't it?

Don't know the kids age but I'd worry if dude feels rejected he might get stabby. Figure he has cash and a way to get knives.

I wish I had some good concrete advice, but I don't...honestly.

All I can add is, it's a pretty sad statement about society these days that this issue is even a worry!

Tell your girls to shut up and deny anything.

“For once you have tasted flight you will walk the earth with your eyes turned skywards, for there you have been and there you will long to return". -- Leonardo DaVinci 1452-1519

"The rifle itself has no moral stature, since it has no will of its own. Naturally, it may be used by evil men for evil purposes, but there are more good men than evil, and while the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness by propaganda, they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles."

LETTER OPENER.

Repeat as needed.




A letter opener with a cute little flower on it since it was being given to a girl.

BTW sneek a peek in the teachers lounge at the school; and then accuse the principal/ teacher that they are the ones who broke school rules by bringing a knife onto campus.
