Petition Closed

   I'm asking you to  SHARE THIS IF YOUR AGAINST BULLYING!!! On April 9th 2012, my 12 year old son tried to hang himself after being physically attacked by a bully. This was a concern to me when I was in school and is becoming more of an issue as the years go by. We have lost so many children because the teachers ignore them, or they don't give them enough information on how to handle the issue. It breaks my heart to see so many children either killing themselves or others because noone wants to take this issue seriously. If adults are held accountable for harrassment as well as assault,  our children should be handled the same way, not left to think it's ok, that they are just being kids.

A 9 week course in all schools that teach and inform kids about bullying. On April 9th 2012, my 12 year old son tried to hang himself after being physically attacked by a bully. This was a concern to me when I was in school and is becoming more of an issue as the years go by. We have lost so many children because the teachers ignore them, or they don't give them enough information on how to handle the issue. It breaks my heart to see so many children either killing themselves or others because noone wants to take this issue seriously. If adults are held accountable for harrassment as well as assault, our children should be handled the same way, not left to think it's ok, that they are just being kids. Everybody wants to see something done. I will not stop fighting till I see results. It may take me awhile, but we are United and we will stand up for our kids. Stop ignoring us and listen!----------------

Jennifer Owen
