My son, Jacob, was bullied from 6th grade through 8th grade. He has a learning disability. We as a family tried to stop this other child from harming Jacob. We tried communication with the school and it didn't stop. Unfortunate, Jacob had enough and stood up to this other child. We taught Jacob to do what ever it takes to get away from a harmful situation. After Jacob stood up to this other individual, the bully stop harming him. He didn't get have any consequences from the school. It was upsetting that Jacob had to put his hands on another individual. He continues to stand up for others. We are proud of him that it didn't change him. He continues to grow strong.
