I have 3 children, 14,13 and 10. The 13 and 10 year olds go to the same school. My 14 y.o. got kicked out of that school and the kids at the school are starting to bully my 13 and 10 year old. The bullies are even going into personal things, like my 3 kids all have different dads. I don't know how to handle it. I have contacted teachers and the principal but they aren't halping out at all.

Please help me.

Well, if your oldest son has been in so much trouble and has been a bully, have your younger children picked some of that up from him? maybe they aren't being bullied and instead are bullying and getting it back from other students.
I'm not trying to upset you, and I'm not saying this is necessarily what's going on. It's just an idea.
If your kids aren't instigating it, then they probably need to be taught how to deal with bullies. Maybe take them to see a counselor. Even the guidance counselor at the school could probably help them.
If the teachers and the principal aren't helping you, then take it up to the next level, the superintendent or school board.

My oldest son has always had problems with authority. He was kicked out because he was disrespectful towards the teachers. Not just a few times every now and then but everyday. I had to pick him up maybe 3 days every week. He has also stolen a laptop computer from the school before. I have tried asking him why he does it and he just says he loves to bully. So he isn't a victim of that rule :)

Have you looked into requesting an out of district transfer or an area charter/magnet school? Bullying is serious business, however schools still don't take the necessary steps to stop it and take control back from the kids. We experienced the same thing and a transfer did the trick for us. It provided a completely clean slate for our son to start with and to be able to build new friendships. as no one knew him or his siblings at the new school there was nothing the other kids could use to bully him with. Since there is obviously a history at this school with your family, a clean slate all the way around may be the best idea- ne atmosphere, new kids, new teachers& principal with out preconceived ideas about your kids and family. Just curious, why did your older son get kicked out? I know or schools have what I call an equal opportunity policy- kid being bullied defends himself and both kids get suspended. Didn't know if maybe your older son was a victim of that kind of crazy thinking.
