Health (Ms. Sue)

"A man moved into the apartment next door to Tasi last week. He makes her nervous. Whenever she passes him in the hall, he looks over her whole body. Yesterday, when Tasi came home from school, the man asked her to come over his apartment to watch a movie. When she said she didn't want to, he became irate. His voice started getting louder and he moved closer to her. She ran into her apartment. She locked the door and called her father to work."

1. Write a paragraph that describes how Tasi protected herself. Describe what further action Tasi and her father can take in the future to protect Tasi from the man.

A: Tasi protected herself by running and seeking refuge away from the man. However, Tasi and her father could take further action in the future to protect Tasi from the man by reporting the man to the police.

  1. That's good -- so far.

    I think the father should call the police and report this harassment of a child now.

  2. How should I revise it, then?

  9. You can follow my earlier advice -- or you can ignore it. That's your decision.

  10. Tasi protected herself by running and seeking refuge away from the man. By contacting her father, Tasi also protect herself from the man as it is most likely that Tasi's father will contact the police and report the harassment of Tasi, which would result in the arrest of the man. However, Tasi and her father could take further action in the future to protect Tasi from the man by requesting a restraining order and making certain that the man has been sent to prison?

  11. It's not a criminal offense to invite a child to an apartment and then yell at her. You don't know whether contacting the police will result in the man being sent to prison. (Thank goodness!)

    Stick to your original question.

    Describe what further action Tasi and her father can take in the future to protect Tasi from the man.
