Customer Question

The bully is a girl who threatens the other children. She lies on them.
and the teacher believes her. She threatens to tear up their library books ,so that they will get in trouble. She makes them bring her candy and threatens themwhen they don't want to sit with her and she generally makes the school day stressful. The teacher made the bully "teacher for the day". Thus she was empowered by an adult to continue her harrashment of the other children. What should I do? I am the parent of one of the victims.

Ms. Church :

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer.

Ms. Church :

I think that there are many options to available to you. Bullying is a very hot topic in our schools and many national media agencies are looking at this problem. One of the things you might concerned is going to the school counselor and/or principal and ask if they can bring bullying information into the school. There are also mediation services available through the school were the counselor and involved parties can together and talk. I am glad that you are hearing your child and taking her/his concerns seriously. are your child's strongest advocate. Be courageous, get informed, and be prepared not only to help your child but also the bully. I hope this encourages you to seek the assistance of the school personnel, they are there for the well-being of all the students.

Hello there, may I help you? I would also like to add a few points here. Bully's are weak and will only pick on individuals who will respond to their pressure and threats. If you can talk to your child and encourage them to stand up to this person they will realise they won't be on control any longer. Encourage your child to take back the control.

Most schools have an anti bullying policy in place, I know you said you had been to the principle but it may be worth going again and asking what action they are taking in line with the schools policy.
