Q & A

Have you ever had to rescue your child from a bullying situation?  What did you do to stop the attacks?
We‘re 3/4 of the way through the school year and I have to move my child to a new school to remove him from the harrassment.  I really don’t know what else to do for him.

    • I went to the parent. I saw where he got it from, but it stopped almost immediately.
      If it had not, I would have changed schools too.

    • Many states have bullying laws/harassment laws. Personally I would talk to the school about it,maybe a councilor.  Also I do have a website that my ex sent to me about how to protect your child through themselves.  I will try to message it to you.

    • In my view and experience the school hide and it’s easier to go straight to the parent you usually see why this happens as your walking straight into an overgrown childish bully - but moving schools and as you have a son I know this is not politically correct I would enrol him in some form of self defence class - just to give him confidence to deal with this and that way others will think twice about picking on him

    • Great answers Tracy and Vicki!

      I would go to the parent as well and I like the self defense class idea. They teach new ways of thinking and self view in addition to technique.

      Best of luck to you, Tamra.

    • I had a similar problem when our son was in fourth grade and fifth grade...the teachers were no help nor was the school.  I approached a couple of the moms whose kids were the bullies and quite honestly was a hairs breadth from a fist fight with them.  It was difficult and we had to enroll our son in a different school from sixth to eighth, but glad we did...Too bad, I can’t catch up with the moms today as now I am in menopause and surely would kick their asses.

    • Isn’t there a saying “knock on the door of a bully and a bigger one opens it ” or something like that but in my experience it’s learned behaviour Tamara

    • I had this with Alice and called the kid and the mother out in the playground after they had messed me about at the school etc and she rocks up in the evening with her fat duck of a hubby - he was over the front of his car faster than he opened the door - and guess what they never bother Alice again and no other kid did either - freak show family.

      some folk you can’t reason with and they only know one thing - well knock on my door and I’ll show you

    • Great comments guys!  It's sad to see that others have had to deal with such ridicule and harassment, too.  Yes, I think many times the kids are just imitating their parents, or they get no discipline from their parents to encourage them to stop.  It's really cruel, and not all kids are able to cope.  Some seek desperate measures to escape it.  Very sad.  

      Today was my son's last day at the old school, and he was harassed throughout the day.  Two bullies were finally removed from the campus today, while later in the day, two more were removed from classroom to be reprimanded by the principal.  I crossed paths with one of the bullies today, and I could barely contain myself, wanting to go at him with everything I had.  

      But my son is now enrolled in another nearby school, so things should start to improve immediately.  Thanks to you guys for your support here!  heart
