Question: shool not doing enough to prevent bullying on my daughter
For about two years my daughter has been victim of bullying at school. We have made aware authorities of the issue several times in the past. However the school did not deal with the offender effectively (basically they only issued warning to the offender) and the bullying has reach such a build up that my daughter is now terrified to go to school and the school now inplies that my daughter is faking it. it has come to a phase where the school is protecting the offender and ignoring the victim. What can i do.

Sounds like it's time to bump it up a level -- go to the superintendent or school board about this. If they are not responsive contact the media. Also, is changing her to another school an option?

Some of the time, the way a person responds can stop the bully from continuing. I know this is not the total answer, but it might help her. I have known of students who went from setting to setting and continued to get bullied because they did not know how to respond when it happens.

After muliple confrontations with the wonderfully active parents and school officials i finally had to get the police involved. Onfe that happened everyone saw the light and started to give a lot of help and watched my first grader and the other first grader. Good luck.
