    My son was bullied by a boy all through elementary school. This boy made our lives miserable. I complained to the school about it – many times – but nothing happened, they “talked with the boy”. I asked to meet with the bully’s parents, but the school did not allow that. This boy was big for his age and he started a club. All you had to do to be a member of his club was to hate my son, anyone that chose to be friends with my son was subjected to the same bullying and harassment my son went through and there were not many that wanted to cross this boy. I began to feel the school almost blamed my son for this mistreatment! I did not allow my son to attend the same middle school as this bully. My son is in high school now and to this day I would dread seeing this kid or even hearing his name.
