I am a parent to a beautiful, smart 12 yr old daughter and a handsome,smart 9 yr old son. My daughter a has a rare muscle weakness disease and is unable to do things like normal kids. She unable to run, jumb, go up and downstairs or even walk long distance. She uses a walker and a wheelchair. She also has her own style. However, she has been bullied by other kids since she was in 3rd grade when her disease has worsen and she has gained weight. She gets called names and has even been pushed out of her wheelchair along saying she don't belong in public school. They say she needs to go to a retard school. I have been to the principal about this and counselors and all they say is to ignore it. She is now in middle school and it has continued only this time it is about 5 girls doing it. She also has some boys that tell her she is ugly and she won't ever get a boyfriend. I have talked with the principal and they have talked to the kids that are doing it. I hope it works but we will see. I have noticed her self esteem has changed and she just likes to sit in her room and listen to music. We have her go and do things with us as a family but I know she would still wants that friend she can count on and hang out with. I am so scared and terrified for her. I try to talk with her and let her know how much we love her. I want her to be happy and succeed in life.
