Want to know what to do when your child is being bullied?
Read PACER’s most recent blog post on Babble.com, the highly acclaimed online magazine and blog network published by the Walt Disney Company for parents.
It began with complaints of a stomachache, followed by headaches and sore throats and other excuses about not feeling well. Although Amy wasn’t sure why, before long it became obvious that her 10-year-old daughter, Sarah, did not want to go to school.

Sometimes I find my friend being bullied because of what she likes or dislikes. I can see how much it hurts her and it isn't ok. I try to stand up to the bullies and now we have a non-bullying club that some kids in our neighborhood go to. I also know what it feels like to go through it, and it isn't anything that anyone ever appreciates.

I'm bullied and it is the most painful thing i have ever endured, at first i never told anyone which was the worst thing as it gave the bullying a chance to escalate. I would just blame it on myself and tell myself that i had done everything wrong it was all me. Then my mum one day noticed i was acting weird, i wasn't eating and throughout the 6 months i never told anyone i went down from 8 stone 9 pounds to 6 stone 2 pounds, all because i thought it was my fault. She questioned me and eventually it all spilled out in a tearful conversation. she acted instantly phoning the school and discussing it with my guidance teacher. i had food chucked on me i was physically assaulted, nearly killed, but you could brush those things off in a few days, its the name calling that hurts the most, it eats away at you. It is all you can think about. i would fake being ill just so i could get a few days of no name calling, the gay the homo darren mcqueer, my second name is mcqueen. i lost trust in everyone, even my family, i fell out with most of my friends and begged my mum to let me move, now im glad she stuck to her guns and kept me where i am. my reason for that is it made me stronger, i eventually had enough and fought back. I discovered bullies are jealous and lonely people who are so uneasy with them selves they need to make others feel the same way. My mum agreed (she is so supportive).
