Teenage son with no friends

Diamond - posted on 01/15/2016 ( 1 mom has responded )




I am worried about my 14 yr old son. He constantly gets teased at school ( nearly every day). By other boys. He walks away and says nothing but its killing him inside. He always yells and tells me I have no idea how hard it is to be him. I feel horrible. His only friend is a 16 yr old girl. I'm very concerned he's only in 9th grade. Any advice? I wish he had at least 1 good buddy

You need to speak to the school counselor and social worker. He clearly needs help. No one deserves to be bullied. It is the school's responsibility to ensure the safety of its students. Your son has the right to attend school without intimidation. Don't back down until you've gotten the support you need from the school.

Has he always been a loner? Or is this situation new? How are these boys "teasing" him? Is it always the same boys? Does he have an interest, maybe a sport he can play? School play? Or clubs?

Best of luck to you and your son. Keep us posted.
