Dear Dr. Cherrye,
School bullying has gotten to the point it’s effecting my child both physically and mentally. It hurts seeing her so miserable. Times have changed from when I was in school. I mean, I know there were a few disagreements and fights, but this constant bullying is really tough.
I’m thinking about resigning from my job and enrolling my kid in some sort of online high school course, or I’m even tossing around the possibility of homeschooling. It’s gotten just this serious. The problem is, I need employment. I have bills to pay, so I’m desperately trying to figure this all out.
~I’m Desperately Trying to Figure this all Out ~
Dear I’m desperately trying to figure this all out,
You’re right! Bullying is increasing rather than decreasing, but I’m not sure if the answer is to abandoned public schools altogether, rather – school officials need to become robust in their mission to help eliminate bullying from its environments. According to Bullying Statistics (2017) in the year 2015, The National Center of Education Statistics reported this: About 21 percent of students ages 12–18 admitted being bullied at school during the school year. Of students ages 12–18, about 13 percent reported they were made fun of, called names, or insulted; 12 percent reported being the subject of rumors; 5 percent reported being pushed, shoved, tripped, or spat on; and 5 percent reported being excluded from activities on purpose. Additionally, 4 percent of students reported being threatened with harm, 3 percent reported that others tried to make them do things they did not want to do, and 2 percent reported their property was destroyed by others on purpose.
These percentages are alarming, so Dr. Cherrye understands your fear and commitment for change. I certainly can’t blame you! I want to also mention that I’ve written a book on this very topic, titled: A Bully Blueprint Solutions for Kids and you can scroll down below this post for my two FREEBIES that’re sure to help you and your daughter, so please take a look and download them today.
Since your heart is into removing your daughter from a toxic environment, your ideas of either enrolling her into an online school, or homeschooling are both viable options.
You mentioned your concern about employment. May Dr. Cherrye ask: Do you have a hobby, or skill that you’re passionate about? If so, can you turn your hobby into an online blogging business while attempting to monetize your blog? All you’ll need is:
1. internet connection
2. reliable computer/laptop
3. blog hosting
