Thread Name: BS: bullying advice
Subject: RE: BS: bullying advice
He is not a victim he has arseholes for teachers who do not look beyond the situation. The teachers know who the bullies are this particular teacher allows the big sister of the girl in this issue, sit in his room and go through his mobile phone etc when she is meant to be in the corridor for misbehaving in her own class.

He had a conversation about leaving his room unattended with the school principle, and has decided to take it out on my son rather that accept he was wrong. What example has he set the bullies by doing a bit of bullying himself.

I think it is disgraceful that 4 or 5 pupils can be allowed to have such influence over the rest of their class. The problem does not lie with victim heads who are constantly asked to question themselves and the actual bully is never asked what they are doing. The biggest fault is with teachers who turn a blind eye or allow themselves to join in.

I fell into the trap of asking what my son is doing wrong to get bullied, of that I am ashamed I let my son down, I should be asking why the bully is a bully they are the real victims.
