“I walked in to pick my son up from kindergarten. There was a crying child, holding his face, looking embarrassed. On the other side of the room, my child, arms folded across his chest, eyebrows touching in the middle, a teacher squatting down to talk to him. ‘There’s been an incident’.

Eventually, she looked back at him with a terrifying look in her eyes. ‘How can I help?,’ he asked.”
