    help,help my chilldren both have been bullyed….first by a teacher, not only by words but told they would be hit…..one of my kids that this has happened to is in special education. Now the kids are also being bullyed by kids….this is because our school is brushing it off. By daughter is telling me that she wants me to shoot her because its not worth living because everyone hates her.

    I am home today praying that my kids are safe today in school…..but I know they are not emotionally. I am shaking because I have another meeting with the school today because my son was punched in the face at basketball (gym) in school. This child never hit my child before but has hurt other children. He was afraid to tell me. This is constantley going on at recess and gym but noone is ever there to witness it. They talk to the child and then let it go until he picks on someone else. What do us parents do that teach are kids to go to school and try your best and treat others the way you like to be treated. What is happening in our world. I cry myself to sleep every night and ask how could I make this stop.

    About 20 other parents I know have complained about our school and they haven’t done a thing to help us.

    Threaten to sue. The one thing that schools fear/care about is money and bad press. Suing hurts both. Your school is required by law to provide a safe environment for your children. If they aren’t, they are liable. So band together with the 20 other parents who have complained, go to the school as a group, and tell them you’re all going to sue the school unless they protect your children.

Kasich gets a small boost, but debate does little to change GOP standings

Republican presidential candidates’ responses on LGBT questions during the August 6 debate appear to have had very little impact on the candidates’ overall standings in the polls.
