The mom said the bus driver knew about the bullying but didn't take action.
“He told me ‘I am doing the best I can, I can’t be in 50 million places at once,’” Tanya Sydney said in this CBS story.
Something about the story just didn't sit right with one member our Moms Council. Emily Chesnic told us she would have done the same thing if her kids were in a similar situation with bullies because the bus driver refused to address the situation.
So today we're asking you to put yourself in someone else's place. If your kids were being bullied like that and no one would help, what would you do? And do you think it was right for the school to ban the mom from both the building and her son's bus stop?
As of Tuesday night, the CBS story had 384 comments of people weighing in. What's your take?
