It's just the beginning of the school year. My daughter has come home everyday talking about some girls bullying her. Calling her names and staring her down every class period. Ive asked my daughter to ignore them but I believe these girls will continue to make cruel comments about her since she doesn't say anything back and I'm getting tried of her coming home upset. Should I tell her to stick up for her self and say something now

Thanks for the website. Fortunately for my daughter once the school got involved the situation was taken care of for now. My daughter doesn't let it bother her until physical threats become part of it. My daughter is well know and popular with most peers. The kids that picked on her aren't involved in any activities or clubs so I can understand why the parents don't care. My daughter has much to live for so bullying is the last thing on her mind. Usually I'm the one to complian cause I just dont think it's fair.

She did do the right thing by reporting it. This happened to my child in 6th grade. It got worse though once reported. It was a whole group of kids. While he was safe at school, I worried about the bus and then there is the social media to deal with. This was a horrible year for my child. The teachers kept him out of it, so that the kids were not aware that my son was reporting the incidences. I did get the police involved at one point. The bullying via the internet is against the law in some states. We were lucky that we had a strong law in place. Going to the parents was not recommended by the police as only 1 out of the 10 families would care. Very serious problem in the school system. I did end up relocating to a different school as it seems to be such a problem in the area specifically several very high end neighborhoods. Keep communication open with your daughter. There is also a website called "Be Kind" and it lends support to those that are bullied.

Good luck!

Your daughter did the right thing by reporting it once the mean words turned physical. If it happens again I would recommend that she does tell the bullies to stop and to leave her alone. They can always use the excuse of "I didn't know it bothered her" if she hasn't actually told them to stop. If she stands up for herself, they may get bored and move on.

Thanks, Cadi2000. Unfortunately, on friday my daughter went to the counselor. One of the girls shoved her and she went to report immediately. Once all the girls were called in it seems that through talking things out things are better for now. Thanks, again for your advice.

hey, I'm a current student in Rodgers and know how it is so the best option is for her to stand up for herself because she cant stay quiet... its like giving up really easily.. so just tell her to stick up for herself but dont pick a fight... but best thing is not to report it to a teacher... thats only a last resort after she has filled out a wish to see form.... :) I hope that helps
