I really do hope that this happens!!
Let me just say that we live in VA, & last week on my daughter's school bus a little boy that she is friends with (they are 9 years old) was being bullied by another little girl on the bus. My daughter was sitting beside the boy.
He was being kicked & punched repeatedly by the other girl for absolutely no reason. I know about this situation because my daughter is the one who stopped it.
She switched seats with her friend, got kicked herself in the process, & took him to the Guidance Counselor's office to report what happened.
His mother was grateful, as were the teachers, & we of course all gave her kudos for her actions.
The next day when I asked for a follow up, I was informed that the school bus driver (who should have been the one to take action) told my daughter that what happened was none of her business, & that she had no right to take him to the Guidance Counselor to report the incident.
I asked her how she reacted to this, & she told me that she just sat quiet. She knows that she did the right thing. And, I have explained that the bus driver probably got in trouble because she didn't do what my daughter did.
The bullying needs to stop, & the people in our school system who are around our children on an everyday basis need to be held accountable if they allow this mess to go on & take the attitude that it is none of anyone's business!!
BULLYING IS EVERYONE'S BUSINESS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
