My son is in the 4th grade and he is being bullied. the school in not taking it serious enough in my opinion.  I am working in the board of ed but he is really upset.  I worry because he said sometimes he wished he didn't exist.  He also want to hurt the kids bullying him...I am very worried...

I care because, nobody deserves to have their life ruined in front of their eyes and the more they are bullied the more they lose themselves and those standing beside them miss the person they were before. I've read a lot about bullying and it's awful and sometimes I want to scream or cry for the person in the book. Those whom are bullied don't forget, you can always stop bullying, you don't always have to be pushed around. Just start by telling somebody and saying "Stop, enough is enough."

When I was 9 years old, my mother brought my siblings & I to America. So basically I started school as a 4th grader & everything was no one had a problem with me of not speaking english. Until I went to 5th grade, where I was jumped by the 2 of my classmates. Everyone in my class hated me more than anything, they treated me poorly the whole class! Until one day, it was lunch period & I was sitting alone, suddenly my classmate slapped me behind my head! Everyone laughed & cheered. Everday after school this guy would hit me! So basically I cried everyday at school & I never told mom not once! Now I'm in the 7th grade & everyone still treates me like crap! but I keep my head up high because I know that I will something someday! & Yeah I was left back a grade that year & I still struglle with everything! But I think about suicide now, because of my mother & just family in general. I'm leaving with pain & everyday I pretend nothing is wrong with me! When inside, I honestly dont want to live anymore. My mother knows I'm in pain but I guess she just doesnt care! its all about her! & what she's been through. I dont have any friends to talk to & never had. We're very poor, I hardly get clothes. SO EVERYONE OUT THERE WHO DOESNT WANT TO LIVE, I WANT YOU TO GO TO A QUIET PLACE & THINK ABOUT YOUR FUTURE & WHAT U WANT! Especially the kids who have supportive families, YOU'RE VERY LUCKY!

Updated Handout! What if Your Child IS the One Showing Bullying Behavior?

Posted: Thursday, February 26, 2015

The word “bullying” often conjures up an image of a schoolyard scene, with a big, intimidating student towering over a small, cowering child. That’s just one face of bullying — and of children who bully. Another face of a bully might be … that of your child. Surprised? Many parents are. Often they have no idea that their child is harassing other children. Yet knowing the facts — and acting to change the situation — is vitally important in making the future safer for your child and all children.
