My son was grabbed by his coach at a high school football game. Actually twice.
The coach is very muscular and he came at my son in anger.My son was scared and thought the coach was going to hit him.my son pushed the coach away, and the coach again came after him repeating the grabbing etc.
An anonymous call went out to DCF, and an investigator came and talked to my son.
The investigator said he was going into the school in three days. it has no been about 6 weeks, and he has changed his tune.he now says that because my son did not receive broken bones its not child abuse
. he is still going into the private school to question the headmaster and coach.
The headmaster did not report the incident.
I am still pondering criminal
charges for battery against the coach.
My questions are as follows.
Is the headmaster required by law to report this incident?
does child abuse have to include broken bones? My son feared this man during the attack, is the DCF investigator taking this to lightly?
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
thanks in advance
