Bullying in middle and high school

“School bullying is a type of bullying that occurs in an educational setting. For an act to be considered bullying it must meet certain criteria. This includes hostile intent, imbalance of power, repetition, distress, and provocation.” Wikipedia

The father of a child who is a victim of bullying at school often feels lonely. unfortunately, too many parents find that their school offers very little help, and in some cases, they even accuse the child of being bullied. The parents are then in an unbearable situation: either they send their child to school to receive further intimidation or they are fired for school enrollment, both are unacceptable!  Often, the child does not come immediately to the parents. Children often fear that parental intervention will only make things worse. They usually endure this harassment in silence until it becomes unbearable.

Other signs of bullying

The daily stress of being bullied in school can lead to a series of personality changes and/or health conditions. Parents may notice that their son, who once loved the school, now gives excuses not to leave. Other signs of bullying at school may be that the child withdraws, loses interest in school or, in general, the grades decrease. Anxiety, depression and upset stomach seem to be commonplace in children who are bullied at school for a longer period of time. Usually, the child is afraid to speak, so they continue to bully for as long as possible.

A student who is bullied at school usually apologizes weekly to avoid going to school. Finally, parents receive a letter from the school board, which faces fines and/or imprisonment if their child is no longer in school. At this point, the father begins to resist and insists that the child goes to school on those days when he does not feel well.
Unfortunately, the father learns for the first time that his son has problems at school.  Usually, at this point, the parent or child will begin to seek help and a solution to their dilemma. Here they learn that there is a simple answer that addresses both topics: they can enroll their children in a private, secondary or accredited high school, and their children can simply finish high school.  If that sounds familiar, then you know you’re not alone, bullying has reached national proportions. In addition, bullying at school is the main reason why students throughout the country complete their middle and high school classes.
