My name is Ashley I have a 6yr old daughter that is in 1st grade. My daughter comes home everyday crying, wakes up crying because she does not want to go to school because she is being bullied. I had asked what they are doing to her. They pull her hair call her names, fat, ugly, ewww look at her clothes (you get the idea). I walked into the school to have a chat with her teacher, her teacher talked to the student and to my daughter and said she would keep an eye on things. Well the next day the same thing happened my daughter kicked cried and screamed not to go to school she said it got worse this time the other student spit on her the previous day at recess. I marched back into that school and talked to the dean of students told him what was going on. He mentioned how he is always in the 1st grade classes and he never witnesses anything, he said he would talk to my daughter and check into things. Well i got that call from him and he said well there is nothing going on, the aids on the play ground are not seeing no signs. Yeah right thats why my daughter came home from school crying and said mom you know what the aid and one of the teachers said i need to stop tattling. Well I knew then everyone out there knew what was going on. Every kid deserves to go to school feeling safe and not feeling harmed or dangered at any level. As parents we need to show our kids that all of this hatred in the world for one another is not okay and never will be ok. We work together none of these school shootings or suicides will happen.
