Bullying is against the law
We are new residents of this area, having been in Carbonear for almost two years, and we’ve heard of a few incidents of bullying in school.
I was talking to a friend this week. She told me of an incident at school where her son was bullied and beaten by some children and had to taken to hospital by ambulance. This is very sad.
We feel fortunate that our children are no longer of school age. Why does this go on in our schools? The school should be held responsible, along with the parents.
I believe any child or young adult found guilty of bullying or fighting in school should be severely dealt with to discourage this type of abuse. As a young child and young adult I was also abused and I feel there is no reason for this discrimination.
Our community is small. We as parents should stick together and not allow this to go on in our schools or our community. Females that are abused, they have some place to go and someone to talk to, and the law comes down hard on the abusers. So why not for our children?
We as parents must stand up and fight for them somehow, even though the abusers are children. Let’s all stand together and STOP THIS BULLYING. We are stronger as a group. Debra Bradbury
