Recently a 15 yr old boy killed himself because of the severe bullying that had followed him for years. Almost every student who has brought a gun to school and killed classmates has done so due to bullying.
If you knew your child was being treated this way year after year what would you do? Would you change schools? Or move entirely?
I always wonder what the parents who know their child is dealing with this sort of thing do. Do they try to get the school officials involved but nothing comes of it? Do they get the police involved? Or do they do nothing and wait for it to get to the point of suicide or homicide? Do they even know?
It would seem to me that getting the school and police involved would only aggravate the bully, or bullies, more and cause more trouble.
