My friends have a daughter that has recently turned 13. The girl is not wanting to go to school. Her parents have asked her what the reason is. She has said that people bully her and she doesn’t like going anymore. I have told my friends that they need to go and have a serious talk to the Teacher or Head Master regarding this problem. All children need to go to school to learn. BULLYING SHOULD NOT BE TOLERATED !!

  • hopefully they have a school guidance counsellor that the kids feel comfortable in talking to


  • Absolutely bullying should not be tolerated. I hope they get it sorted


  • Schools are very bad at dealing with bullying.


  • Yes they do need to talk to the school and hope that will work but they also need to look more into the why and whats been said and by who she should keep a diary of it with names etc. So they can help her work out ways to stop it. I would also suggest that they look into some karate classes so if it were to ever get worse and physical she will be able to deffend herself and get away. Karate has helped my son heaps with has confidence as well, he was shy and has issues making friends but this has helped him fit in make friends with people in the class and feel able to get himself out of situations if needed. He has never needed to use and i hope he never will.


  • Alas, there is only so much the school can do. A lot of bullying is online or via text nowadays, nearly impossible to stop it all

    • People can be blocked and reported on facebook and their digital footprint can be followed and it includes texts. Bullies need to be stopped in their tracks!


  • Good that the girl talked with her parents. A lot of kids don’t. And they go on suffering alone.
    I agree. It’s very important to handle this problem as soon as possible with the school. The girl needs to find her self-esteem again.


  • Bullying is not to be tolerated and schools have active management policies on dealing with bullying. They definitely need to discuss this with the school because they need to be aware – they cannot act if they are unaware.
