Anonymous asks:

If your child is dealing with a bully and the school doesn't do anything about it, is it right have the 8 year old change schools? What are the risks?

The child is an 8 year old girl. This other girl continually tries to exclude her, make fun of her and put her down. This has caused the 8 year old to not want to go to school. The school itself is aware of the problem and has done nothing. The parents of the bully said that "girls will be girls" when they were approached. What is the right action after you have have tried to approach the appropriate parties? She has 2 years left of school before middle school but this other girl is really turning her off of going to school.

What the Expert Says:

Be an advocate and don't take a brush off from the school OR the parents.  It is NOT acceptable.  Be firm and persistent.
ALSO....mention to your school a program that monitors kids and keeps them safe on the internet.  Check out  Enter this code for a 10 % discount....IQNQUP6M.  As the author of Stop Bullying Now I have found this to be the best program to keep kids safe on the internet and not victims of cyberbullying.  Let me know what you think?   P.S.
It cannot be uninstalled!  Stay strong.
