    • Hi momofthree. I was bullied as a child and it was very hard on my mom. She used to tell me I was above all of that, I could be the strong one, The other girls were just jealous - but it was still so hard to go to school every day. It tore my mother up to see me leave the house every morning.

      My husband has been in education for 30 years. His school is unique in that they are not bound to any rules of the department of education. So, bullying is absolutely not tolerated. Kids are sent home who bully. Other kids see bullying and turn the bullies in to the administration! What comes to mind for me is whether you or your child is comfortable letting the teachers know so perhaps the bully can be dealt with without any backlash for your child. If a teacher is keeping an eye without the bully knowing about it, and sees something, the problem can be handled appropriately.

      I hope this helps. I know how hard this is for a family.
