Georgia, Again....


So Georgia is being bullied at school.  Can you believe it?  By two 4th grade girls, too!  I  emailed the teacher to watch for signs of problems between the 3 of them, but have not heard anything.  Yesterday, Georgia received a note that was signed by both of the girls, that was very mean and just heartbreaking.  But, Georgia took it upon herself to try to work it out, because I have been telling her that she needs to learn to stick up for herself.  She turned the note into the teacher and then proceeded to one of the girls' homes after school to talk to her and her mother.  This girl, Paige, blamed it all on the other girl, Molly, and said that she too was being bullied by Molly and that she was "forced" to write the letter that Molly dictated!  Georgia believed her, mostly because her mom was there and very mad at Paige.  Then, Georgia and I went to Molly's house to talk to her and her mother.  Molly also blamed the note on Paige, saying it was all Paige's idea and that she was the one saying all the mean things about Georgia.  Who is Georgia supposed to believe?  Paige admitted to the teacher that she did write the note, but Molly was absent from school today, so she will also have to speak to her tomorrow.  Mrs. Boswell then proceeded to tell Georgia that she should probably just find some new friends.  What a joke - unfortunately it was on Georgia.

Not that this helps...but Georgia is unfortunately not alone. My daughter, Sydney, has been the victim of bullying at school and on the bus for the past 2 years. It's awful. Sydney is doing a little better trying to stand up for herself - but it's a very difficult task for a girl that wants to make everyone happy. Probably the thing that's helped the most is the fact that she's seeing a therapist whom she feels she can trust. The bullying has effected every member of our household and it has been so horrible!! Good luck! ~ Kris

LAME!!!!!!! That teacher should do more to reprimand the girls. Hopefully Georgia doesn't start thinking mean thoughts about the girls, but it's human nature to want to fight back! and unfortunately, it's only the beginning...

i still remember being called train tracks and mosquito bites by boys in the sixth grade because of my braces and small boobs!

it's a good time to learn to stand up for herself while also being Christian
