As reported by CBS46.com, a mother is speaking out after school administrators threatened to file sexual harassment charges against her nine year old son for giving a hand
written note to his crush. The content of the note included passages such as “I like your eyes because they sparkle like diamonds”.
Someone from the Hillsborough School in Tampa, FL stated that the boy wrote more than one note and that they were unwanted. If this is true, it is certainly appropriate for the principal to tell the boy to leave the girl alone, to stop writing her love letters and to administer traditional forms of punishment if he doesn’t comply. What seems absurd is to threaten a nine year old child that likely hasn’t even started to go through puberty with a serious criminal charge.
