My daughter has been bullied non stop since the first day of school by the same 3 girls. Everyday is a new act from them, mostly verbal. My daughter has now had 2 meetings about these girls and SHE is made out to be the one in trouble. I spoke to Ms. Southworth, her school counselor who informed me this matter has been handled by PEER mediation, that is run by STUDENTS. The meeting was 3 minutes long, they told my daughter to MAKE FRIENDS with the BULLY and sign a paper saying she will do so. NO ADULT was present, NO ADULT has spoken to these bullies nor will they. According to Southworth, this is on the verge of bullying, but it's not physical, so it isn't really!!! My daughter also texted the bully line they have in place for such problems and no response was ever received.
