I was bullied as a young child through my teen years, after years of wanting to hide away from the world because of the pain, and shame of being bullied i fell into a downward spiral of drugs. it took years to just shove all the memories down and try to get my life back. Now that i am a mom of three young children i have them coming home with these horrible stories of other kids making them feel as i felt when i was young. my preteen daughter is just so soft hearted and it does not take much and some kids in her grade know this so she has become as easy target. the school has told me that she is not tough enough and what the other kids are doing is harmless picking at her but i think anytime a child comes home 4 days in a row crying because kids are calling her names and hitting on her i think that it goes way beyond harmless picking. I am tired of getting i will deal with it and it seems like nothing is happening. It is almost like the school system just does not want to do the paperwork to fix the problem.
