Dear LIB mums: what would you do if your child goes missing in school

A LIB mum says to ask this question;
"If you go to your child's school to pick him/her up and the school management starts looking for him...for almost 30 minutes...and eventually find him alone in an empty classroom (not his)..what would you do as a parent?

Omg it has definitely happened to me before and it was totally not cool,worst feeling ever I shouted hell at the teachers who where supposed to watch him,and when I found him he was alone he's lunch stolen and he looked very sad,but am glad he's much older now and can take care of himself at least

dnt rili knw wat to do. I wud b totally confused

dhobiz said...

Find out why and what he's doing there alone then reconsider his stay in that school as his safety is not guaranteed.

Ll only ask him wah d probleme was,can't tell sumtin might be bothering him(xsexie blingxx)

I will sob,pull myself together,walk up to him/her,gather him/her to myself and softly drop the question "Are you alright hun?".His/her response will determine the next action I take

In an empty classroom, not his class. The explanation better be satisfactory and my child okay or hell go let loose for the school

It depends on how old d child is, I will ask my child to knw what he was doing there or who kept him or her in dat place. D answer my child will give to me will determine d action to take.

What would i do?take him/her to kfc and ask wot happen

hilary obiorah said...

Nothing, pick him up and thank God it wasn't worse. Then ask him what the heck he is doing there!

Angie Cape said...

In the space of 5 minutes that my child has not been found, I'll alert the police.. The police will join in the search and then deal with the school authority afterwards.. I'd just be relieved and thank God he/she is found..and then check for any signs of danger/abnormalities.

God forbid I don't pray 4 missing child.bt if I find him sitting alone in a classroom I we believe he jz want 2 stay alone bt depend on d kind of child i av(I mean ow he use 2 behave).

goldprecious said...

I am actually not sure...but of course at first panic, anger and when the child is found definitely relief... but after that I really don't know. The childs age also comes into play. Dunno

it happened to my daughter esp during her first week in Nursery one, she left her bag in her class and went to Primary 5 class. when we found her, she ran to me with a smile and i just couldnt do anything but give her a big hug and tell her right there that she got mummy worried, i also told her not to ever leave her class without telling her teacher.

Opelicious Morgann said...

God forbid oooo. I need to seriously question the school management, then, find out from my son if he doesn't have psychological issues.

The school has to explain something to me,thank God found him.nnelly55@hotmail.com

I will first thank God by hugging my child and ask him what he is doing there alone.

Lady G said...

I would talk to him and try to find out what's bothering him. If he was in an empty classroom alone and not there because he needed peace and quiet to study, then that means something is wrong with him, and as a mom I would want to find out.

Amarachukwu. said...

Ask him what's he doing there n who brought him there...

Anonymous said...

Good thing you saw your child finally... its your duty to ask your child why he or she was alone and what happened...*NEXT*

You have a dirty mind.. Simply as your kid what he/she is doing in an empty class. Stop thinking negatively.

eddo oluwafunke said...

First and foremost, it will never be our portion! But if it happens, d school authority school be held responsible, cause they are in charge of d chld's wellbeing and security within the school hour. The police should be informed, and the school surrounding should be thoroughly seacrhed even d neighbouring houses near d school, and above all let d parents start praying! Cause na naija we day it could be #kidnappingtinz#

In 9ja, you cannot do anything, but in a Western country, they know you can sue them for negligence

I will question my child first ( if the child is old enough to express him or herself.) Then take it from there. Depending on what my child tell's me, if the child dose not say anything i will take him straight to the doctor for proper check up…then..

It happened to my child too at redeemers teap intl sch abj. I later found my child at the back of classroom on tap pouring himself water. After much begging from the teacher, I let it be but withdrew him the next term, but the later met their match who took them to court when they maltreated his children, it happened that the owner of the sch is madam due process.

Anonymous said...

Call a meeting with his or her teacher and the principle. Make it known to them that you will be reporting it to the police and you hope it will not happen again. also demand letter of apology and incident form.

His or her teacher have a responsibility over his or her safety until he/she is in your custody.

Retarded question....start dancing Awilo.

Chinomso Omezurike said...

I will ask the school and him questions. I will not take it kindly with the teacher, check my child if he has been molested, because the things that are happening now are really disturbing.

Nanma Labar said...

For the class that he/she was found in to be empty, it means school must have closed long before that time. So, "dear mummy", why did you go for your precious child so late? Did you pay for extra time/day care? I'm not saying the school managent wasn't careless, as a matter of fact, they were. But they are responsible for your child 'during' school hours, and maybe a little after.

Anonymous said...

I dont understand all these comments. When the child is not a cripple. Can't he/she just walk out of class after closing time to an empty class? Well, i guess most of una dey refer to private schools sha. Go check public schools. Children go to every class freely whether empty or full. That one no be issue.

They should better have a good reason for his state at the time they finally found him. And I ll sure do my own research,something would have sure happened. Nevertheless I wonder if the school authority would not even advice my child to withdraw considering the perfect display of madness I would have put up for the first 30mins of the search..............pretty T
