There are two issues here. First, you need to engage with the school. Keep a log of incidents, and take it to a meeting with the class teacher. Ask what they teacher is going to do about it. You don't say where you are, but in many countries the school should have an anti-bullying policy. Also if there is a racist edge to the bullying then that should also ...

In the absence of any kind of protection from the adults who are responsible for your child’s safety/well-being while at school, the only thing YOU can do is teach your child how to protect himself. Sign your child up for self-defense classes. Whichever type you find suitable/acceptable based on your beliefs and holds your child’s interest. There are all ...

This is a hard one. The only thing I can suggest, other than moving your child to a better school, is to become a major pain in the butt; its the squeaky wheel that gets the grease. Keep a log of incidents. Write up what you can recall of the history, and then keep it up to date. A litany of painful incidents packs a lot more legal and emotional punch than &...

Per my experience reports will not work to the advantage of the victim and neither will public discussion. I had been a victim of sexual assault back in high school and never reported the case. In the early 2000s it unfortunately provided too much controversy for the victim to handle and often times the case would lose. There will also be other students and ...

Bullying trickles down. If this is how your youngest is treated in school, then this is both the norm behaviour that he'll pick up, and he will have an inclination to perpetuate the bullying, so as to not be on the bottom rung of the ladder himself. Obviously, you need to do what you need to do to make sure your oldest is ok. I'd say it's more important to ...

Remember the good old saying, "Sticks and stones will break my bones but words will never hurt me"? Reassure him and let him know that what those other kids think doesn't matter. That their words can't actually hurt him or change what a super kid he is. Remind him that he's a great kid and he's loved by his family and that you all think he's the ...
