My son has had a problem with being bullied for a while now. It doesn't seem to matter where we live, there is always someone new to pick on him and make him feel less than what he is. My son like many other kids enjoys comic books, gaming, riding his bike, tossing a football and reading. But because he isn't skinny or very athletic, some kids pick on him (he's also a red head). He's called names, shoved around, hit and knocked about. When things happen at school and we report them to school personnel, unless I start saying things "lawsuit" or "I'll be up there with a Sheriff in tow", they don't actually DO anything about the kids doing the bullying. This is an epidemic that is only getting worse. We need to STOP this NOW. Not just for my son, but for all the kids out there who can't do it alone.
