Heres where I really need some help. My daughter is being bullied by a girl in her high school. It started over a boy(big suprise) and has continued for almost 4 years. Im talking 6th grade and now shes a sophomore. It has expanded to include people in classes that dont know either one of them but have heard about it and just want to be involved because they think its funny. Ive been to the principle and the police and theres nothing anyone can do. She even received a threatening message from someone this summer who the police officer said sounded like an adult. I am going nuts trying to help her. She is not backward, takes up for herself, is not a nerd, and is very pretty (not just according to me!). So its not the usual stereotype. She has no friends now because they are sick of the drama. Whats a mom to do?Answer Question

I have talked about changing schools. But the police and myself have come to the conclusions that the problem will just follow her. Kids all know kids at these other schools so it will just trickle its way there. And if we did what kind of message does this send. Not only to her but to the other kids involved.
As far as the achools administrators...they have all been notified. The no tolerance law translates to them they they dont want tohear about it from either side, or they threaten to suspend everyone. Including the one being bullied. So much for laws to help!
