My 6th grader gets kicked at school
Hi All Parents,
My DD who is in the 6th grade is having problems with a boy in her class. He sits at the desk behind hers and keeps kicking her during class. He also makes fun of her name and teases her about liking some other boy in the same class. My DD is a little timid by nature and does not like confrontations. Also, she knows that this boy has gotten into a few fights with some other kids and hurt some of them pretty badly. He has got suspension from school once already.
DD has tried telling this bully many times to stop bothering her but he won't. She is very upset and doesn't know any other way to handle this situation. My husband and I have scheduled an appointment with her teacher to get this sorted out but DD is scared that the bully will hurt her some way if he comes to know that she has made a complain against him.
I am at my wits end trying to get her to realise that she shouldn't be scared of bullies. What do I do ?
