My Heart Hurts For My Daughter
I have the most beautiful 14 year old daughter who has overcome so many obstacles. When she was 11 years old she had her first experience with bullying. She was choked and knocked to the ground and assaulted while ON SCHOOL GROUNDS!
Here is where my blood pressure went through the roof! I had no idea what happened. The staff did nothing. No suspension, expulsion, etc. I went to the district and filed a complaint against the school. Nothing happened!
Fast forward to 2014. We found out she suffers from moderate hearing loss which requires her to wear a device. The bullying started all over again. She's being called deaf girl, deaf mute, fat b.. Just very hurtful words.
I contacted the superintendent because the school has done nothing to cease the epidemic of bullying. She is at the point where she doesn't want to go to school. As a mother I hurt for her but I will continue to push for her and every other child being bullied today.
She wants to transfer schools now because she doesn't feel supported by the school staff. I appreciate you all taking time to read my post.
