Default Pants pulled down at school

I got a call from my daughters' middle school principal today.
During a gym class, a boy pulled her pants down below her knees. Sadly she wears less than covering undies, (know what I mean).
I feel so bad for her, she has loved school up to this point.
What do you guys think about that.

i certainly hope the miscreant was suspended from school.

your daughter should know that that was deviant behavior that should not be tolerated and CERTAINLY was not her fault and anyone who taunts her on account of it should also be reported to school authorities.

Pantsing used to a common prank for guys to play on each other in the locker room, but seldom outside of that domain. I have to think that if a boy pantsed a girl it was more than simply a prank, but more likely rooted in sexual curiosity at the least.

I would have a talk with law enforcement to determine if this falls under the law as possibly a sex crime. If so, I would advise the principal of that possiblity and request that the boys parents be so advised. I would not press charges at this stage, but if any future actions occurred they are warned that charges will be pursued.

This is an incident that could be pivotal in both of their lives. She could be embarrassed by this to the point of social trauma, so she needs your support and (even moreso) her friends support. The boy needs to be appropriately punished for his indiscretion (purposeful or impulsive) and put on notice that he crossed a line and is now under intense scrutiny. If he gets away with it he is likely to repeat the event, possibly with more and more severity as he continues to suffer little or no consequence.

What a little $%^*&^#!
I am glad the school at least called you. Hopefully, that means the boy will
be dealt with.

Have her take Martial Arts...he'll be more than sorry if he ever thinks of doing it again.

I appreciate all of the support, I was,still am so angry, I'm glad I wasn't just over reacting !

I asked the principal what would be the boys punishment and he said he was not allowed to tell me, privacy act or some crap......hello, the boy blew that when he pulled down my daughters pants.
She is a very strong girl so I hope this will just pass. It guess it would have been a bit less dramatic if she didn't wear thongs !
So far she is a straight A student and on the school sport teams, I hope none of that changes, kids can be so dang mean !!!
I hope we will look back on this years from now and laugh.

Thanks again for the support and advice.
I'll keep you posted on the situation !

How old are these kids? If we are talking about anything beyond elementary school, you could be expelled for that in my area. Even elementary kids would get suspension.

This is middle school, my daughter is a 7th grader, 13yrs. old, so the range is probably 12 to 15, give or take.
I will say we live in North Carolina and this is in the Wake County School district

OK, the boy was definitely old enough to know what he was doing! And that is such an important age for your daughter, being accepted at school, etc. I would press charges.
