Telling on a troublemaker?
I know this boy who says he would like to hurt someone. He is mean to animals. I know that his father hunts and that means he owns guns. I’m scared. What should I do?
Is this boy a big-mouthed bully or a menace to society? You shouldn’t have to be the one to make that judgment. Tell a parent exactly what you told me. Or type an anonymous note on plain paper to your teacher or principal or both.
You wouldn’t be landing the boy in jail; you’d be alerting an adult about a worry that is too big for you. Ask to keep your name out of things, then sleep well knowing that you’ve done what you could.
