HELP: Son Being Bullied! What Do I Do?
Last night, I saw a post on Facebook from a friend of mine asking for advice after her son has been bullied for the SECOND time in the last 2 weeks. The post reads:
"Parents what would you do in this situation? I’m a super protective mom so I’m fuming right now and perhaps need a voice of reason.
This is the second time in less than 2 weeks that Bobby has been bullied and his head slammed into the concrete.
The office has called me for both incidences. This time she stated that the school is aware of the problem, the child and will be on a close lookout for Bobby’s safety.
I went to pick Bobby up early today because I wanted to hear what happened, it’s very clear he was coached on what to say to me. And it did not match the incident with who I spoke to on the phone, but it did match the counselors story…
I, then, proceeded to give her MY advice... Which is probably bad advice:
"Worst advice of the day: if Bobby pops his bully in the nose without him seeing it coming, it’ll never happen again."
Ashley gave this advice:
"Yea no way. I’d be pissed and up at the school getting to the bottom of it. I would also request a meeting with the other child’s parents. Unacceptable!!! Good luck momma your instincts are spot on!!"
Christen shared this advice:
"You have EVERY right to be pissed and defensive! Poor baby! I'm so sorry he's experiencing this! When I went to Powell, I was bullied. My parents requested a meeting with the principal and the bullies parents. I would take action. Especially since this is not the first occurrence."
What advice can you give this mom? Please help!
