    8-year-old girl's scalp ripped by bullies

    CARROLL COUNTY, Ga. — The family of an 8-year-old Carroll County student said she was bullied so severely she had to be taken to the emergency room. Kids had pulled her hair so hard her scalp ripped. Her head was shaved bald to avoid infection.

    Her family said her schoolmates picked on her for two straight weeks because she got hair extensions. Doctors said the little girl may never grow hair on the injured part of her scalp again and may need skin grafts. Aolani's mother and even strangers who learned of the story on Facebook have shaved their heads so she doesn't feel alone.

    That is really early start for bullying. This is worse than bullying. I would not be surprised if these bullies have parents who are bullies themselves.

    These bullies are no doubt budding psychopaths. I see future serial killer, rampage killer, or terrorist.

    Lots of kids are bullies for lots of reasons.
    In my experience both as a therapeutic foster parent, parent and in my own youth... I believe it oftentimes starts at home. Many parents view the bulling behavior displayed by siblings toward each other as "normal" or "normal sibling rivalry" and tend to minimize its effects or take a hands off approach. To me, it's not normal, shouldn't be tolerated at all and should be considered serious each and every time it occurs.
    Sometimes it's the parents that are the bullies.
    IMO it's not that difficult to teach children to be kind to one another. That is not acceptable to be deliberately mean to one another. It needs to be taught and modeled in the home and the tools given that promote productive solutions and acceptable negotiations. parents need to mediate and do the work... And so do the teachers.

    The expression poop runs downhill is so true.

    Headline needs to change and read 8yr old girl was ASSAULTED
    What happened to her was beyond bullying..she was physically attacked.

    Bullying is a vicious cycle. You are right, a lot of bullying starts with sibling or parental bullying.

    not too early anymore. bullying is starting even earlier. my daughter was bullied in 1st grade and I nearly had to get a restraining order taken out because the girl was not only in her class but a neighbor. ETA...the school would do NOTHING because they never saw anything happen. that seems to be the common stance of most schools...if we don't see it, we don't do a damn thing.

    a nice little threat which included "I am highly armed and those kids better not step foot on my property" to the off her rocker grandmother raising the kid and her psychopath brother did the trick.

    I do not remember bullying this young when I was growing up. first I witnessed it was jr. high. :/

    bullies are very clever. they know how to work "they system". based on my experience (this may not be at other schools) of having a daughter in 2 different schools, their homeroom teachers do not go out to recess/lunch w/ the class. there are usually school aids "supervising" recess & lunch. at her new school, a charter school, there are aids and parent volunteers and they actually SUPERVISE the kids. her last school there was no supervision, so the bullies took advantage of it. if the teachers don't see it, the bullies get away with it until something horrifying like this happens - physical evidence. ugh.
    dum spiro, spero

    In my days, bullying started in late elementary to middle school. Sadly, you are right, it is starting earlier.

    Interesting you mention your daughter's bully being raised by her grandmother. I wonder what happened to their parents.

    the mother is a meth head in and out of jail....and has about 6 kids by different fathers. all fathers are not in the picture. the grandmother looks homeless, as she doesn't take care of her appearance nor the kid's appearance. I live in a nice area and they are just out of place. I believe she receives $$ from her ex husband who is well off.

    the brother has literal psychopath behaviors and I have had to call the police 2 times because I witness him being violent outside at their house - including whipping his sister with an extension chord. I wont even get into the crap he had tried with my daughter a couple of years back - before I threatened them to stay away.

    the kids are no longer in public schools and are being homeschooled by the grandmother. when I talked to her nicely the first time, she dismissed me by saying her grandkids were well behaved loving children. denial helps nobody, especially those kids.

    sounds sad, but I keep expecting to find out one day they have done something horrible to the grandmother. not sure how she still has them....but she has a way with words that maybe she can talk CPS/the cops out of doing anything.


    soooooooo w/ that said, I believe bullying is a product of the kid's home environment mixed with some emotional/mental issues.

    No surprise that they are a product of a highly dysfunctional family with a non-existent mother and father. Was the brother attacking your daughter's bully?

    The son sounds like a potential Eric Harris, Ted Bundy, or Osama bin Laden. Budding psychopaths that they are in their youths.

    I agree that bullying is a product of environment and psychological issues. Almost every bullying case I have noticed, the bully came from a broken down family and had poor relationship with parent(s) and/or sibling(s). Substance abuse and abuse by parent(s) and/or sibling(s) are common factors.

    I was definitely bullied at 8 years old, but the physical assault started in middle school. In early elementary school I've had to deal with everything ranging from kids making fun of my shirt, to sexual harassment, but nothing as extreme as having my hair pulled out.

    O/T Trampoline Safety

    What a darling little girl. How can other kids do this?
    http://www.wsbtv.com/news/news/local/family-8-year-old-girls-scalp-ripped-bullies/nbbfK/

    A bit O/T re unsafe trampoline use. Backyard video showed:
    -- No net-enclosure.
    -- 6 people jumping on trampoline
    at same time
    The girl, 2 adults (mom & aunt w shaved heads) plus 3 other kids. Combined weight = ?
    -- only ~½ the springs were safety padded.
    -- frame wobbled, imo, because of improper installation on uneven ground or overload.

    Many trampoline user guides online show 150-250 lb weight limits, some 300-350 lb., and only more expensive trampolines ($2000+) had higher limits, up to 400-450 lbs.

    US trampoline injuries treated in ERs:
    -- nearly 98,000 in 2009, w. ~3100 hospitalized,* or
    -- 88,563 annual average during 2000-2005, totaling 531,378.**
    Three-fourths of injuries occur when multiple jumpers play together.

    I hope jumpers in video will start following safety guidelines and not end up visiting ER.
    And I hope this little girl won’t be assaulted and battered anymore.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    * “American Academy of Pediatrics continues to advise against recreational trampoline use, a position it has taken since 1977.…Nearly 98,000 people were injured on trampolines in 2009, 3,100 of them seriously enough to be hospitalized, … Dr. Briskin reiterated. She advised parents to enforce a one-person, one-trampoline rule, since three-fourths of injuries occur when multiple jumpers play together.”
    “Other safety rules include using safety pads on the trampoline’s frame, which can soften falls; adult supervision,…”
    Sept 25, 2012 http://well.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/09/25/trampoline-injuries-down-but-caution-urged/?_r=0
    ** “… Rhode Island Hospital and Brown Medical School Injury Prevention Center found that trampoline-related injuries more than doubled in the decade leading up to the publication of the study in June 2007 in “Academic Emergency Medicine.” Between 2000 and 2005, 531,378 trampoline-related injuries were logged at emergency rooms in the U.S., an average of 88,563 each year. Of these, 95 percent happened on home trampolines. Although following manufacturer usage recommendations and weight restrictions can help prevent some of these injuries, it is the opinion of the the American Academy of Pediatrics that trampolines never be used at home, school or on outdoor playgrounds.”
    http://www.livestrong.com/article/356680-the-weight-limit-of-a-trampoline/#ixzz2j92WR1ZT
    The above one-jumper at a time and safety pad use rules are repeated in undated Q & A
