“This is what bullying does,” she wrote in her post which has gone viral and has now been shared over 218,000 times. “This is my six-year-old daughter, hospitalised, due to bullying.
“This is my child with such a caring heart that despite being so ill ‘doesn’t want anyone to get in trouble’.
“This is my child who has stopped eating, has cried herself to sleep, had anxiety so severe she’s up sick over 20 times in an hour through the night…
“This is my child whose ‘best friend’ has emotionally abused her for so long she thought it was normal…”
The mum continued: “This is my child who has been in and out of hospital for countless trips due to being so sick with anxiety. This is my child who was told off for ‘telling tales at school’.
“This is my child who has been mocked on social media by the bullies’ parents for just having such a pure heart…
“This is my child who when addressing the issues with her school we were told ‘It’s just six-year-olds being six-year-olds’.”
She continued: “This is my child who is one of too many that are going through this…
“This is my child who doesn’t want this to happen to anyone else. So this is my child’s story we are sharing but she is one of many….too many!
“Please help us share her story.”
In a follow up post Carrie shared, “Wow…just…wow. I cannot believe the hundreds of messages that are filling my inbox in support of Sophia and even more I cannot believe how many others are going through all of this at such a young age. 46k shares and counting!
“This is becoming so much bigger than I imagined and is not just for Sophia but every one who has gone through this and every one who is too scared to tell their story.”
