Alabama school makes 5-year-old sign contract stating she won’t kill or commit suicide
The mother of a 5-year-old Alabama girl is incensed with her daughter’s school after the child was forced to sign a contract stating that she would not kill anyone or commit suicide, reports Local 15.
The mother, identified only as Rebecca, states the child was forced to sign the agreement after she reportedly pointed a crayon at another student like it was a gun.
“They told me she drew something that resembled a gun,” said Rebecca. “According to them she pointed a crayon at another student and said, ‘pew pew’.”
After the alleged incident, the child was given a questionnaire to evaluate her for suicidal thoughts and asked if she was depressed while her mother waited in the school lobby after being called to the school.
Without asking for permission, Rebecca said her child was then given a Mobile County Public School Safety Contract to sign stating she wouldn’t kill herself or others. As a 5-year-old, she cannot legally sign a contract in Alabama.
“Most of these words on here, she’s never heard in her life,” Rebecca said, adding that her daughter asked her afterward what ‘suicide’ is.
“As a parent that’s not right. I’m the one should be able to talk to my child and not have someone else mention words like this in front of her at all.”
The girl’s mother wants the incident removed from her daughters permanent record, adding that the school has recommended that her daughter to see a psychiatrist which she believes is unnecessary.
