MOBILE, Ala. (WPMI) – An Alabama mother is upset after her 5-year-old was forced to sign a controversial contract at school without her consent.
According to WPMI, the contract states that the child will not kill or injure herself and others.
Rebecca, the 5-year-old’s mother, says her daughter was sent home after an incident in class.
“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,”
Rebecca told WPMI her child was then given a questionnaire to evaluate her for suicidal thoughts.
While Rebecca was waiting in the lobby, her child had to sign a “Safety Contract” stating she wouldn’t kill herself or others.
“This isn’t right. She’s 5-years-old,” said Rebecca. “Most of these words on here, she’s never heard in her life.”
According to Alabama state law, minors cannot legally sign a contract.
WPMI says Rebecca is pushing to have the incident removed from her child’s record.
The mother says school officials have requested that her daughter see a psychiatrist.
