On Site School Bath
As a parent., as we relate this story to you. You will bristle; its infuriating. This is a story that is just coming out now, but last November a school nurse and counselor forced an 8-year-old Texas boy to bathe after telling him he "smelled badly, was dirty and had bad hygiene. This was at Peaster School District in Fort Worth. The parents say it was such a terrible incident and a violent washing that it has traumatized the boy.
The boy has not been identified, but his parents Amber and Michael Tilley said they were NEVER contacted by the school about their 8 year olds hygiene problem.
The schools excuse for NOT contacting them was they wanted to avoid embarrassing him!
His parents kept him out of school for a week. Now the boy is afraid that he always stinks so he overused cologne and wants to take baths ALL THE TIME!
The lawsuit seeks monetary damages and also asks that the district "cease all harassment and retaliation" against the boy.
Couple of problems for us:
- You should have contacted me about his problem/hygiene
- You did this on your own and he was SCRUBBED hard
- YOU TOUCHED MY CHILD....YOU TOOK HIS CLOTHES OFF AND TWO PEOPLE TOUCHED HIM
