Aa a mum of 4 aged between 19 & 5, I am not one to be easily suprised or shocked I usually take most in my stride and soldier on, I was completely lost for words last week when my 10 year old came home with a story thatt literally broke my heart, Mum he says everyone was picking on Josh D at school today he got angry and yelled, I wish I was dead like my Mum, be better than being here he says as the rest of the class laughed, I felt sorry for him mum my boy continues, I was gob smacked to hear that the teachers response wastp chastise this boy and tell him to sit down and be quiet without saying a word to his tomentors. like this boy is screaming for help however when approached about the subject of bullying theprincipley all but laughs scoffing dont be ridiculous we do not have a bullying problem, well seems to me they do. As parents we must listen to our chilren

  • OMG – I would not be leaving that there – they are still young enough that we can make a difference.. no bullying is EXCEPTABLE if I ever found mine being Bullies I would make them see its NOT OK… Poor Josh D. Bullying is in EVERY SCHOOL wether they like to believe it or not, its how its dealt with is the answer. you have a truly beautiful son <3


  • nice story i enjoyed it


  • That poor kid. Can’t believe the response of the teacher or school.


  • That’s really sad. At least your child had some compassion for him


  • Some school are way too focused on their rep some times, and unfortunately its the kids that pay for it. That teacher really needs to stand up and fix this situation before it gets any worse. Poor little man


  • I agree totally, we must listen to our children. I feel so,sad for Josh & disgusted with the teacher. I’d be tempted to speak with the principal
