There is ALOT of this happening lately!I think the community should get together and find ways to deal with this issue.I don't know how to go about getting this started.Any ideas or suggestions? There was a group of 5 kids who came to our home and attacked my 15yr.old daughter(she was all alone),and the legal system is only giving the kids 8hrs.community service with 3months probation.They are still harrasing her at school and around town.Something needs to change!!!My daughter has been healing physically real well,but the mental abuse still continues for her and other kids here.Answer Question

It sounds funny but maybe your daughter should do martial arts my son was bullied and this built up his confidence and helped him. I think I taught them being bullied is not okay and this reinforced it for him as well as helped him deal with people who bully. I am sorry for what your daughter has gone through but also get her a copy of The Art of War this teaches strategy and also will teach her how to deal with people who bully as well.

Listen Mama, I have been where you are now. You get up to that school WITH a lawyer and you demand they do something. YOU tell them quote "I will not bury my child because YOU did not do enough" And yes you start the legal process to sue the bullies parents. I am speaking out of emotion so let me back up. Get the lawyer first and let them advise you on how to make this stop. Your DD should not have to leave school because some kids are so damn mean. But you could always home school her and take her for extra curricular activities at community centers or YWCA's. If you keep her in the same school then get her in activities in another school district or the community ASAP. Remind her over and over again that it is NOT her fault, SHE is not the problem. We got lucky with our district. They have a ZERO tolerance for bullies and they expel them if they are repeat offenders. Hang in there Mama.

First let me say I'm so sorry your DD had to go through that. It really is the parents not being on top of things. We can't control everything our children do. But if every single time they do something serious like this we are taking away their stuff. Making them apologize as we apologize to the parents I feel it would help. If everyone thought about how they would feel on both sides of the fence it would help us to solve the issue. No matter what side you've been on we can stop it by not tolerating the behavior. By not letting people get away with the kids will be kids comment.
