Blame lawyers, instead. Americans sue over everything.

Personally, I think the suspension was too much, but the child's behavior is troubling.

Agreed. Had it been one of my children, I'd have been fine with an after-school detention, and the lecture they'd have gotten when they arrived home.

I saw the mother come out on TV, and she says they made suspended him without ever calling her in to discuss the matter. The mother is very upset, and I don't blame her.

I think so, too.

They never bothered calling the boys mother in to discuss it, and find a solution.

I see nothing wrong here with the childs actions, he is a victim of TV. When I was in the second grade we had a student teacher a very beautiful brunette with a dazzeling smile. I made a 100 on a test and when she put a star on my paper I remarked that we all should make 100's for her! She smiled and called me a flatterer. of course this was back in the 50's when it was acceptable for teachers to hug her students because she cared for each of them.

Suspension is the ultra liberal NEA's answer for everything. It is a very sad state.

No child should have to ask for hugs, they should be given freely and often. Hugging has been proven to be GOOD Medicine by researchers at numerous research hospitals, and I practice GOOD MEDICINE.

and, Thank You Little One!!

children who are less mature
I don't see anything wrong, either.

There are children who are less mature than others, and this little boy thought the word sexy meant pretty.

When we are children, we think very differently than adults. When I was little, I thought babies came from the billy button. The mom would sit down, unbutton her billy button, grab the baby, (baby was completely dressed with diaper and booties) grab the billy button, pull it and tie it into a knot again!

I also thought there were a plump Santa Claus, and a skinny Santa Claus. I always preferred the plump one, but didn't want to hurt the feelings of the skinny one.

One as an adult, can't possibly know what a child thinks, or sees things. This little boy only wanted hugs from a teacher he obviously had a little childish crush on!

I hope that little boy won't end up traumatized because of the adult world's DIRTY mind!

It is a matter of how he said it and what he meant by it. Some children would mean it the way the parents claim he did. From others the same statements could be meant as extremely disrespectful and/or suggestive. No way from the article to know for sure if it was one way or the other.

Reading through some of the comments to the article on the newspaper website, it might be a case of a couple of clueless parents buying the innocent and niave act of their misbehaving son.

If it really was innocent, then the punishment is out of line. If he said it to be disrespectful or suggestive, then he should be punished. I have known plenty of ten-year olds who would not have intended it innocently.

I saw the little boy on TV recently, and he seem like an innocent, loving little boy to me. He also seemed a little slow.

I feel the school should have first called in the parents, and discussed in private, but they didn't.

When asked what the word sexy meant to him, he said it meant pretty.

Stupidity
The politically correct people are crazy. Hugs initiated by children are never harmful. Comments from children can be anything. If anything should have been done is to tell the kid, please use another term, someone who is too politically correct may take offense. Hug everyone. It won't hurt. 1/2 my family are huggers, 1/2 are non huggers,that only me and my brother are allowed to hug.

Re: Stupidity
And what a sad day it has indeed become, when a simple hug now produces such suspicion!

I'm a hugger, but I just may stop for fear of being accused of something!

Yes, the poor little boy feels like a criminal. From here on out, he'll always be afraid to show affection for fear of being thought a pervert.

you know I think he had a crush on is teacher, as kids do.
she is the adult and she has made to much out of this. and your right
I don't think he will know what is right to say to a girl and
he will always carry it with him until he realizes that he did nothing wrong!!! he is just a kid and now days I think it is hard to just be a kid.

The parents of Putnam Valley Middle School fifth-grader Aaron Perez said they are in the process of hiring an attorney to pursue a civil lawsuit because they believe their son's civil rights were violated by the suspension.


Someone needs to slap his parents upside the head. Then, they need to be taught the meaning of civil rights.

The parents were called at all, and the school took matters into their own hands.

What the school should have done was call the parents first, for a personal meeting, but they didn't. Isn't this just like the police interrogating a minor without the parents being present? I think so.

I hope the parents of this little boy sue and win!

I saw the mom and boy on TV and the boy is the epitome of innocence, plus he looked extremely immature and a little slow to me.

Ummmmmmm
Well first off, where the hell is a 10 year old hearing "You look sexy?"

I can see how it would make the teacher uncomforable to hear that from a student. With all the attention put on teachers thanks to those few teachers (male and female) that had illicit affairs with their adolecent students, I'D feel pretty uncomfortable too!

And shouldn't the kid have had an idea that he shouldn't have tried to get a hug from the teacher that he got in trouble for commenting to in the first place?

If the events happened at the same time, it would have been one thing... I could see it possibly being innocent, but the fact is that the kid had already gotten in trouble for making an innapropriate comment BEFORE asking the same teacher for a hug.

Something about it sounds like this "innocent" kid had an idea of what was going on...
