I like so many other was bullied in school. Mine began in the middle of 5th grade and lasted until my junior year in High School. I am now in my late 30's and still feel the negative affects from bullying. I suffer from depression, social anxiety, and anger. From those who have been severely bullied like myself, what you find out later in life is that when the bullying finally stops, the damage remains. Sometimes it cannot be repaired. This is why bullying needs to be addressed in a child's life early so that their adult lives will not be ruined. If you have a child who is being bullied, you must exhaust every option to stop it. If the school will not provide a safe environment for your child, consult state bullying and/or harassment laws. Educate yourself and take this knowledge to the school and make a change.
