So far in the last 12 months my daughter has lost at least 15 kids that were her friends due to suicide. Only one of these kids went to her school but that doesnt matter they were still her friends.
This is manly coming from the school yard but also on FB and there phones. So not only are these kids been bullyed every day at school its following them home. They just cant get a break from it.
The problem is that not all kids are telling there parents or even the school welfare officer. And those that do tell are not getting the support from the schools to stop it. Yeah they speak to kids that are doing this but really that doesnt stop them if anything it can make it worse. These bullys are sayng horrible things this is just a few examples.
1 One of her friends she was 17 was told she was ugly, that she was useless, that they wished she dead, death threats on FB and so on. Her sister found her hunging in her closet.
2. Another every day the bullys beat up this boy he was 16, spat on him, threw drinks at him, they held him down down the street strpped him naked and peed in his face and so on. He was found hanging from a tree in the local park by a stranger.
3 A girl only 13 was told she was useless, had death threats, she was beaten up, pushed, told they wished she was dead, no one would miss her if she wasnt here anymore and so on. She was found by her mum in the bath tub with her wrists slashed.
This was happening at school, down the street, on FB, on the mobile (cell phone).
Some of the parents knew there kids were been bullyed but didnt know to what extent. Some had no idea at all.
Schools were told and yes the bullys got into trouble but that really didnt make any difference if anything it made it worse. They just went on a harder attack.
How are we going to stop this from happening? Closing FB pages slows it down but most kids these days have phones and we just cant stop it down the street.
These kids that push there victims to suicide should be accountable for there actions and should be punished by the law.
Everyday a child is bullyed and many take there life because they cant handle it anymore.
Not only does it affect the family it affects there friends and the locals but strangers in fact these deaths affect everyone.
I tell you nothing is worse then going to a funeral of child for any reason especially because of someone elses actions
Something has to be done to stop it....
Im not saying its untrue, but that is difficult to believe.
