TO INTERVENE OR NOT TO INTERVENE. That is the question for a parent whose child is apparently being mistreated by an adult or, in this case, school personnel. More precisely, "to what extent should one intervene?" It is impossible for me to not intervene, even if at a conversational level with my children. What do they expect? When they say they don't want help do they mean it? What might come of a conversation with a coach, athletic director, teacher, or academic dean? I have no easy answer, but heart pain.
