What would you do if you child was being regularly bullied at school?
What if the school was doing nothing about it, or the things they did were not stopping the bullies?

What would you do if you child was being regularly bullied at school? I would speak to the school, and offer my child the options of homeschooling or switching schools

What if the school was doing nothing about it, or the things they did were not stopping the bullies? I don't know, especially if my child refused to leave school. I think I'd take precautions, like picking her up myself, if the bullying was physical I'd probably enroll her in self-defense classes. I would speak to any teachers involved to keep an eye on things and give me a call if it escalates.
I would make sure my child knew that she could talk to me about it without any condemnation.

What would you do if your child was the bully? I would pull them from school for a time, volunteer with them at an abuse clinic of some sort. I would make sure that they knew that they could talk to me without fear of condemnation. Bullies are usually very hurt, I would be worried that someone was abusing them first, and look into it.

This question is so hard for me to answer. I feel so strong about not sending my child to public school, bullying is one factor as to why. I feel like no place is safe anymore. And I know I cannot protect him from the world but I cam protect his education. But I will answer as best as I can.

What would you do if you child was being regularly bullied at school? If that was an on going situation I would pull him out of it immediately. I would have some serious talks with Drake on respect and how there is nothing wrong with him and try to rebuild his confidence.
What if the school was doing nothing about it, or the things they did were not stopping the bullies? I would take it to the School Board and or the State. I would not just walk away because THEY were simply not doing anything about it.
What would you do if your child was the bully? First, I would cry. I would have a lot of one on one time with him talking and like I said in the above, try to rebuild his confidence.

It makes me SICK to hear about kids being bullied. There is no reason for it.

Gentle parenting is about guiding instead of controlling,
connecting instead of punishing,
and encouraging instead of demanding.
It's about listening, understanding, responding and communicating.
