When your child is being bullied repeatedly, try not to ignore it. If he or she is receiving unrelenting bullying on a daily basis, things must be addressed before they escalate.
It is crucial for you to single out bullies in school. There are many actions that need to be taken if the problem isn’t rectified soon. When you have tried every way possible or when your child gets physically assaulted by his bully, it is time for you to involve higher authorities so they can put a stop to the bullying.
The main thing you need to remember when it comes to bullying is that you’re not alone. If bullying has escalated beyond verbal abuse, find a teacher who can help. If the bullying is not with your classmates , but someone on staff , speak to the school counselor – they are often able to settle disputes before they get out of hand and work closely with the principal ! Otherwise, if these issues persist at any point and you need further help, contact the local board of education called ‘State Board’
One word of advice before you take further action is to save everything you’ve got in writing. This includes anything and everything related to your case as well as a log with details of every incident during which you were bullied by your boss. It’s important that you have all the facts down in writing at this stage for easy referencing when it comes time for you to approach third parties – like HR or company management – about resolving the matter.
Rather than just write down “at school”, be specific and tell us where exactly in the school your child is a victim of bullying – like in the boys’ restroom inside the North gym, for example. We should also have a record of how often these bullying incidents take place. Are they a weekly, daily or multiple times during the day event?
Determine who saw what happened during the bullying incident. Note that if the bully happens to have a bunch of friends involved with his or her behaviour, write down the names of everyone who should have been doing something but chose not to!
Recording which people you’ve spoken to and what they did when it came down to handling the matter will help have all of your bases covered in case you need to prove that their negligence was deliberate. Ensuring your child receives a thorough, attentive education is crucial for his/her overall development and happiness and it’s also part of the job description for teachers working in educational institutions.
Schools are required to follow the laws of their state when it comes to bullying and ensuring a safe learning environment for every student. While some schools might choose to handle things in house and keep parents out, sometimes this isn’t enough because those schools can become overwhelmed by the sheer amount of bullying that occurs each day on school grounds. If you have experienced or felt your child has experienced severe bullying at their school, contact your local law enforcement agency as soon as possible.
There are many reasons why bullying is unacceptable. A major one being how it can deeply impact the person at its receiving end as well as their family members via emotional and mental demeaning, creating an environment of hostility and resentment in the home setting. As a parent, we want you to know that you have rights and that it’s important you exercise them when needed (especially if your child has already approached the teacher before).
As parents, we expect the school to be a safe environment for our children. Bullying can’t ever be allowed and should never go unmonitored – because kids who bully (and their parents) need help more than anyone else!
If the school district has refused to take bullying seriously, you should consider contacting an attorney who could seek compensation for your child’s emotional suffering and that of you as a parent. Your child is entitled to receive an education without being bullied.
