5. depends on the situation ZW
I occasionally had to yank a kid out of harms way when I was a teacher. I mean like from a swarm of wasps he just enraged, or because a car was pulling into the parking lot and the kid wasn't keenly aware that he was about to get squished.

In both cases there were black and blue fingerprints left on the kids arm.

I've also had to physically restrain kids who were having conniption fits and endangering other kids or teachers.

In those cases there were sometimes bruises where he struggled against being held and calmed.

In all cases I spoke immediately with the parents with regard to the incident.

What were the circumstances that led to the bruising in the case you mentioned?
