@redheadem:  I agree, I feel the same way. I HATE bullies.

 

OP, You should just copy and paste your original post into an email, and send it to every single news station/newspaper/news site in Texas.

@TexasSpringBride:  Do you have a family member that lives locally? or a good friend? Maybe you could call a parent of one of your daughter’s good friends, and have her come over to your house after school? So that your daughter is not alone? I am incredibly worried for your daughter’s safety. If these kids have threatened her with death, and shoved her out into oncoming traffic (twice if I read the first post correctly), then it doesn’t seem like much would stop them.

@redheadem:  “Sorry, this thread is making me SO ANGRY, I keep commenting.” This is exactly how I feel. I’m so freaking angry for OP and her child. It could just so easily be anyone’s child and it just breaks my heart.

@TexasSpringBride:  It sounds like this is your best course of action. I’ll be thinking of you all!

@TexasSpringBride:  I admire that you are willing to give it another day, I don’t think that I would have the patience to wait that long. I would be sure to mention in your story to the news that the police can’t take action until the school does. I am sure that will enrage plenty of mothers and they will rally to support your cause. Does your daughter have a yearbook that she can point out the faces of the bullies in?

I know you said your daughter doesn’t know their names, but I can bet if the two of you sit on facebook she will find them or if she asks around, someone has to know their names.  Don’t sit around and wait for the school to hand the matter over to the police – get their names and go down to the precinct and raise hell until they make an arrest.  This is not legal advice, but just something I would do as a mother.  In the meantime, if she can take a day off from school, let her.

First, which you are already doing, talk to the principal. 

If you are not satisfied with that meeting then go directly to the superindents office and speak with him. The superindent is more concerned about press than a principal because they report to the Education Board. If he/she is not able to help, then go to the press. The administration should be doing all they can to help your daughter as well as id the kids.

The press should be your last resort tomorrow. Why? Because at the end of the day your daughter may not be a target anymore, but people will be afraid to be her friend (seen this happen). She is young enough that other kids will be afraid to be her friend or blame her for getting “so and so cool kid” to get in trouble. Kids dont play fair.

The fact that I just watched this http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/my-story-struggling-bullyingsuicideself-harm-maybe-last-vid makes this so much more upsetting. I hate the thought of someone’s child suffering at the expense of another child. 13 is such a difficult age, as is. I was bullied terribly at that age, and I see a psychologist once a week about it, almost 10 years later. The school needs to intervene, like, yesterday.

I think you should go into the school with your husband and be as firm as possible. I would absolutely consider giving your daughter the day off from school. I know that 10 days can mean truancy, but that generally doesn’t apply to illnesses. Call and say that she’s ill. From the sounds of it, she NEEDS a stress break. 

My heart goes out to her and your family. I can imagine that as a parent, this must be terrible to deal with.

Fi’s parents will be at the house from now on when the kids get home because of the safety issue.


This is great. I am glad that she will have someone there.

And its okay, you don’t have to have compassion on those children. Right now, you are a momma bear, and someone has messed with your cub. You have every right to be enraged. To be honest, you seem very level headed about the whole situation, and I have to say that I admire that.

Did she get a Dr’s note when you went to see if she had a concussion?

 

ETA: Sorry I am posting SOOO much. I just really feel for you and your daughter, and I want to help in any way that I can.

Does your daughter have a Facebook page? If she does, I would seriously consider encouraging her to shut it down ASAP. It’s really hard to escape bullying, especially online. If she does have Facebook, it could be making things a lot worse. Even if she isn’t being cyber bullied, it can be difficult to see lots of other friends/people your age having an amazing time, while you’re going through something so difficult. It makes everything feel ten times worse, and it’s very alienating. Since home is now her “safe place,” it would be good to make it as completely separate from her school life and classmates as possible.
