What the Expert Says:

You are describing bullying. The school officials may be working with the other child, but the bullying continues. The impact on your child is apparent and can have lifelong affects. Find out what the policy regarding bullying is for the school and make a formal complaint in writing. You may also consider taking the issue to the school board. You should not name the bully publicly, but offer a solution you feel would be appropriate and helpful to all.
