My kids are very quiet, and so they would never mention bullying unless I did it first. With that in mind, I raised the issue and asked them to tell me everything that had happened. Luckily, the situation wasn’t as bad as it sounded. However, I still needed to put things right.
I went to the school
The principal was busy when I visited the school unannounced, but I managed to speak with some of the teachers. I explained the problem, and they assured me they would keep their eyes open.
I contacted our local government representative
After a couple of days, there had been no change in the situation. Frustrated, I contacted our local Congressman. He was the man who oversaw all education in the area. He soon agreed that my issue needed some attention. After writing a letter to the school, my kids never complained of bullying again. Indeed, they seemed happy and chirpy from then on.
Make sure you take some comfort in this post and use it to look after your kids. Some parents don’t know their little ones are being bullied until it’s too late, and that is a terrible shame. The infographic below will offer more information.
