One of the problems that we face in society is bullying, and I’m sure that you would agree that it is something that truly doesn’t have a place in society when you really stop to think about it. The unfortunate reality is that most of us have had to deal with a bully at some point in our lives, regardless of whether it was at home, on the playground or even at work. If you are a parent, it even gets worse when you find out that your child has been bullied or perhaps even is a bully! The parents in this story found out that their child was a bully and after something horrible happened, they ended up becoming bullies as well.
I’m sure that you would agree that bullying has ruined many lives. Parents are doing what they can in order to protect their children but it is not always going to be possible. That was the case with a little girl named Lilly-Jo. She had a happy life when she started out and she had a family that supported and loved her. After she went to a new school, however, things began to change.
Lilly-Jo was happy but after they moved to a new area, she had to go to a new school and she started to get more and more quiet. She didn’t want to play with her friends and her mother asked what was wrong but the little girl wouldn’t give her an answer.
Eventually, she admitted that there was another student who was picking on her. She would tug her hair, slap her, hit her and stop on her feet. That was really only the beginning.
Eventually, Lilly-Jo continue to say that she was sick and she stopped going to school. Her mother, Jess, didn’t know how to solve the problem but one morning, her little girl came up to her and said she had swallowed a lot of pills from the bathroom cabinet. Her little daughter had tried to kill herself.
After being rushed to the hospital, the doctors treated her and she started to stabilize by the next day. Just realize that she had to take action and she wanted to tell the world what the bully had done to her daughter.
That is when the school got involved. A statement was released by the principal but instead of expressing sympathy, the principal said the action had to be taken that the school took a hard stance on bullying.
The school was not any comfort it also just decided to confront the parents of the bully. She showed them pictures of her child in the hospital but they weren’t sympathetic. They laughed at her and cursed in her face.
We hope that Jess is able to get her daughter into another school. These little children deserve so much more and they should be able to get their education without being harassed.
