  • Bullies are one of the worst things that can happen at anywhere. Threre should be no bullying at anywhere because I almost got bullied at school.

  • I am bullied by a group of kids because I'm small. Kids used to like me but now because of one bully all the kids that used to be my friends all bully me or ignore me now. I had 2 open heart surgeries because of chd. I also have ADHD and dyslexia. Kids call me midget, hobbit, retarded & stupid. When I grew my hair for 4 years to donate for kids with cancer I was always called a girl, or told to change my gender. I thought it would stop when I cut my hair, but it didn't. I always go to the teachers but the kids lie, and I'm blamed as part of the problem like I asked for it. I try to ignore them and say stop, but they never stop. I get mad and sometimes will say something mean back. My voice is all I have because I'm little. I get pushed, thrown against lockers, my stuff stolen or thrown away. I have one more year because I wanted to graduate junior high at my school. I earned it after everything I put up with. I think I need to switch schools. I'm tired , and my parents are tired of fighting with school and writing reports. I guess the bullies win.

  • I have been through the same thing. Some of my friends may not see it as bullying but I do. They themselves bully people, and then it makes me wonder if I'm hanging with the right crew.

  • Don't bully! It is not right for other people to suffer because of something that might be going on in your life, that is personal.

Criticized because of my faith

I am German, I was born in Germany and when I came to England, we lived in the house that our father bought for us. Everything was fine but when I started school, I started first year of primary school. I had only found one friend, but she later left and somewhere else, I got put on a boys table, two of the boys where really nasty to me they kept on going through my school drawer and the boy next to me kept on poking with a sharp pencil, he was actually best mates with the guy in front of me. They did all the way till yr 5, i didn’t sit next to them or sat on there table in yr 6. After primary school I moved onto high school, I did find friends actually true friends we even formed a friendship group, we are in college now and we still in contact with each other I found many new friends in college especially in my class.
