Video Catches Bus Driver Mocking Little Girl & Having Other Kids Join In (WATCH)

School BusA shocking new video shows every parent's nightmare -- a school bus driver not only mocking a young girl as a "crybaby," but also encouraging other kids to join in!

The Floresville Elementary School employee has been fired for "childish and immature" behavior. Superintendent Sherri Bays said she was very concerned about the incident and that it was "definitely not appropriate."

The unidentified driver can be seen on the tape calling the student a crybaby and egging the other students on to join her. "Ready?" she asks. "Cry ... cry ... cry ... I want my mama."

Heck, I want MY mama after watching this video! What a deplorable thing to do to a child. Ironically, the bus reportedly has a "no bullying" sign on board. I'm pretty sure that's supposed to apply to the school employees as well as the children.

Take a look:

I get that kids are hard sometimes, especially when they seem to be crying for no reason. I have a crier myself, and it's hard occasionally to not throw my hands up in frustration and ask what the heck she's crying about now. The sound of a crying child is definitely something that raises just about everyone's stress levels.

But geez, you have to hold yourself together! Kids cry when they're upset, whether you think it's worth crying over or not. You know how to scar a child for life? Invalidate their feelings and stomp all over their boundaries and teach them it's OK for others to mock them when they're having a hard time.

Adults that work with children have an obligation to act compassionately toward them. They are looking at the grown-ups in their lives to teach them how to act, and bullying and mocking them only teaches them that being mean is an OK way to act. Just horrible.

How upset would you be if this were your child?

Just awful. I am glad this school district fired this woman. I've heard of similar cases in which the teacher/busdriver/administrator just get put on temporary administrative leave (paid vacation) and nothing ever comes out of the "investigation."

I'm so glad they fired her!!!! I was bullied in middle school and h.s and not just by other students! my 7th grade math teacher even threatened to kill me in front of the whole class and nothing ever came of it. Feel so bad for that little girl.

Public schools are full of idiots, so I'm not surprised. Anyone who works for the government thinks they got a job for life so they can do whatever they want.

Youthfulsoul: you are so right! She wont forget about it ever! Especially if she is a sensitive little girl. I happenen to have a very sensitive little girl and starts to cry if she even thinks people are making fun of her and she is only 5.

Im glad that bus driver got fired and this is why i like the parent pick up ways.

I remember crying on the bus on my first day of Kindergarten. We were moving to town and staying in a rental for a month until the house we'd bought was available for us to move in. The school had the eventual house's address for me and put me on a bus to it, instead of the rental house across town. It is one of my first memories, and the kind and gentle bus driver soothing me, staying with me, and eventually driving me to my mama in her own car is something I'll never forget. I feel terrible for this little girl if she's crying for something like that, and the bus driver should be ashamed of her (him?) self as a role model and a human being in general.
