Who knows how many lives he saved? Thank goodness everyone is okay .
It's his father that posts on occassion.Mad respect for Kim Royston, he helped prevent what could have been a huge catastrophe. I know a teacher that works at that School, Kim is well respected by his peers. Kudo's to Mr Royston's son who post here occasionally. Your son is a difference maker in our community.
If it's a case of bullying, maybe the kid chose not to tell the parent about it? Even with completely open parents who you trust 100%, there are things that you may still chose to keep to yourself.Same question, Dad, where were you?

I completely trusted and was open with my parents when I was younger, and still didn't tell them I was being bullied for over a year (at the exact same age too). Why didn't I? I couldn't tell you, I just didn't, until it reached a head and my bully found my homes phone number and called it prior to the next year starting.
I'd add to that the concern that if your parents get involved it will make things worse, not better.I don't think when most kids get bullied, it's something they really want to share with their parents. You're embarrassed and ashamed that you are getting picked on and you feel like a lesser person.
