I need advice from other moms. I have 13 year old who has been bullied for long time.

I did go to principal I went to the guidance counsellor I went to teachers I basically went to everyone and anyone who would listen. End result I found out that they said if she doesn't stop saying the word bullying they will suspend her. I was told to bring her for psychiatric evaluation. I have to wonder why girls attempt to take their life's by the time they reach 15. I mean what is wrong with these people. I have put together a file and have backed up as much proof and information as I can and want to go public and show our government how hard the schools are fighting bullying. By the way I have copy of her comment for psychiatric statement. I have been preparing myself for a while now.

Definitely go straight to the principal about this. Most schools have a no bullying tolerance. Hate to be the tattle tale, but i would absolutely make a huge stink until something was done, and the kids dealt with.

Thank you Ariana for your response. I did change schools and it still didn't help. I have her in two therapies one neuro linguistics and the other art therapy. I talk to her everyday and I stay close to her. I try to boost her self esteem and wish my older daughter lived closer. I recently wrote a report as I lived every event with her.

If possible change schools.
Get your child involved in some sort of programs where she/he can be social. Martial arts is great for self-esteem and self-defense. They do sometimes talk about bullying. Also scouts/girl guides is somewhere to socialize in an adult-supervised setting. Anything that will boost their self-esteem outside of the school setting.
Sorry I can't help you more about in school bullying but it's a difficult thing to combat. I would try to go over things your child can do to cope with it. Is this a boy or a girl? Is it physical or emotional bullying? Depending on the type of bullying there are things you can try to do to help her deal with it.
I personally would do whatever I could to change schools if this is accuring in the same school setting. It's not going to change anytime soon (as you already know) so it's better to get out and try to find a fresh start.
