All for the supportive comments on my last post, i believe that any responsible adult would have done the same thing in those circumstances.
I have spent most of the day in meetings with a solicitor and the school board so feel a bit better about where i stand, on a legal front she has no basis to make a claim against me or the school as it can be proven that i acted on the childs best interest, she (the mother) would have to prove that coercian was used by me on the child. I will never moan about doing paperwork again (well at least for a few weeks) because its the form filling etc that i had to do at the time of the incident that has backed my actions up, i acted on the best interests of the child which has been drilled into me on every course i have taken.
Its shook me up a lot and made me question how i could have handled it differently, being more calm now i can have a certain amount of sympathy for the mother, not knowing what mental as well as physical abuse she sufferred at the hands of her (now ex) husband, but as always my responsibility and obligations will always be with the child.
There is nothing i can do now but wait to see if there is a response to the letter sent on my behalf from the solicitor and school board. Perhaps knowing that there is no valid cause for complaint the issue will dropped, there should not have been one in the first place, but i cant speak for her state of mind.
