Despite complaining to school officials about her daughter’s serious bullying, a concerned mother received no help for her little girl. So, the protective mama bear stormed into her the classroom, walked up to her daughter’s bullies, and gave them each a special “ticket” to redeem.
Along with countless other academic and social concerns, public schools have become hubs for the bullying epidemic. Although administrators have vowed to crack down on bullies with a “zero tolerance” policy, the abuse easily continues away from the watchful eyes of authorities. Laguna Niguel, California is no exception to the rule.
Sadly, this inevitability often forces parents to take drastic measures in an effort to save their children from the physical and emotional trauma of bullying. Of course, some parents might take this a bit too far, as was the case with one fed-up mama bear in a California school district.
During school hours, an unidentified woman stormed into her 8th-grade daughter’s classroom with one thing on her mind. The irate mother stood at the front of the classroom and demanded the students’ attention, immediately making it known that she wasn’t playing around. She was on a mission to confront her child’s bullies and ensure that they’d never mess with her daughter again.
According to KTLA, the woman had visited school officials at Laguna Niguel the week prior, informing them that her daughter was the victim of bullying. She pointed to boys in her daughter’s classroom, explaining that they were not only abusing her in school but online as well. The school promised to handle the situation, only for the worried mother to watch the bullying continue.
Standing next to the surprised teacher, the woman went on a tirade, warning her daughter’s bullies that there will be repercussions for any further abuse of her little girl. She then handed out tickets for one “free a– kicking,” which she explained could be redeemed by the bullies’ mothers, aunts, or sisters, as long as they are over the age of 18, Blue Lives Matter reports.
“She’s a girl. Y’all are boys, ok?” the mother said. “If y’all bully my daughter, if you look at her the wrong way, if you breathe the wrong way, send your mom to me. Sisters, aunts, anybody over 18, I’ll f–k them all up. Do you understand me? Leave my daughter alone and I’m not gonna say it again,” she warned. “Any mom. Any sister, can catch these hands, okay?”
The students sat in utter silence as the mother explained the startling consequences of bullying her daughter. She then made sure that each child received a ticket, which they could apparently give to their female relatives.
“Pick ‘em up. A– whoopings. A– whoopings for free! For free! You don’t even have to pay for it,” she announced.
The mother was careful not to threaten the students directly, keeping all of her violent rhetoric aimed at their adult relatives. She explained that, if the bullies in question were girls, she would encourage her daughter to fight them outside of school.
“But since you guys are boys and she can’t do anything, tell your moms, tell your sisters, tell your aunties, cousins, whoever, as long as you’re over 18, we can handle it any day,” the mother said.
In an interview with KTLA, some of the students admitted that they were initially scared that a strange woman had entered their classroom. However, once they understood the reason for her visit, some found her tirade more humorous than intimidating.
“It was actually kind of scary, but then she was like, all talk. So I thought it was like kind of funny towards the end, but at first it was scary because some random person comes in the class, and starts yelling, like I don’t know what your initial thought would be,” one student said.
After the incident, Niguel Hills Principal Tim Reece issued a statement to parents, confirming that the teacher had called the front office for help and that the woman was immediately escorted off the campus. He claims that the school has no idea how she got into the school in the first place. The mother has since been banned from the campus.
The incident immediately sparked debate, with some claiming that the mother was just being a good protector while others insisted that she crossed the line. Still, many sympathized with both the mother and her daughter, arguing that the political push for gender equality has contributed to such bullying.
