I suspect my boy is being bullied
Dear Miss Crimebuster
M y son has just started senior school, but has had a few upsets. This is understandable, as it’s a huge change. But I have a gut feeling that bullying’s going on, and he’s too scared to tell me. He seems to be taking too much of his pocket money into school. Tanya, 35, Hull
Have a quiet word with his form teacher. All schools should have policies on bullying. The boy responsible is about to get in bigger trouble, and your son will no longer be his focus. Your boy is sensitive, but more resilient than you think. He will become a leader, not a follower in life.
