44. my daughter in 9th grade...five girls took her down
Edited on Sun Oct-16-11 01:01 PM by babydollhead
they made a plan...befriend her, get her to dye her hair brown, "you'll look so pretty" after she did they told her how stupid she looked. Then at homecoming, they all came up to her and told her they had only pretended to be her friend. Then they started rumors that she was selling pot, including texting her Dad's phone with"LMFAO, now here parents will hate her too" They had a "bully box" at school for kids to put in peoples names of people who were bullying them, they filled the box with her name. They spread hate and rumors and ugliness about her throughout the school. They had a large boy throw her down the stairs. We went to the principal, the counselors, the parents of the kids. "My mom is going to shoot your mom now" They taunted her in the hall, shoved her and would never have quit. Thank God High school is over for her! The next year in 10th grade, all five of the girls were in her homeroom. every single morning she had to sit there and pretend they hadn't wrecked her. They should have special scholarships to college for kids who've been bullied and lost interest in school during High School. Needless to say, her grades suffered. She once told me, "They best part of my day is going to bed at night and the worst part is waking up"
