I just had to file a complaint with my daughter's school for a bullying situation. My daughter is in 9th grade and she is a very pretty girl, a cheerleader and has lots of friends. Basically your all-american popular high school girl. I guess I have alot more to learn about this bullying problem as I never imagined she would be targeted until now. At the end of last year she re-connected with a boy from her elementary school who now goes to a different high school They liked each other but my daughter didn't like him in that way. Over the summer this same boy started going with another girl from her school and that is when the trouble started. The girl decided she didn't like my daughter because her boyfriend had made some comments about her being pretty. Ever since the beginning of the year she has called my daughter a slut and whore and gotten all of her friends from volleyball to join in on this as well as throwing food at my daughter in the cafeteria. My daughter told me about this and I was very upset and told her she needs to stand up to this girl. But she said she was afraid and hates confrontation. I know a couple of her good friends have confronted this bully about it and it doesn't seem to faze her at all. Then she has a good friend who is freindly with this bully and sits with her at lunch!!! I just wish she would stand up and say something back to this girl. I guess my point is that ANYONE can be a victim of bullying....not just the outcasts or the overweight kid or the nerdy kid. So sad. Thankfully the school has a three strikes policy for bullying!
