More on Bullying at school
a 13 year old boy in Sydney was bullied so badly at school that he is now in intensive care fighting to save his kidneys, have a look at the Daily Telegraph for details. Teachers and parents wake up and realise that there is a problem and it is not just limited to issues of sexuality it's everywhere and it comes from the predujices and narrow minded attitude that so many parents have, and thus pass on to their children.
There is no testtheat people must pass to become a parent - and if there was I fell most would fail!
Bullying at School
Ive always had a thing against my school because they never backed me up or stopped people when they bullied me. Yeah I know that everyone gets bullied at school, but when it became really bad and most of the teachers would turn a blind eye to the punch thrown at me in the corridor or the shove from one boy to another in a queue - happening every day I was at school it became too much.
Ive noticed recently an enormous media interest in school bullying, not just sexuality based but normal taunting, in Australia tyhere has been the Trinity Grammer case and in the UK this court case.
I had a couple of very special teachers at school who stood up for me and came up trumps for me more than once........Cheryl and Mark - hey if ya know them say thanks from one student :) But I have always hated the rest of the school cause their attitiude was - bullying is forbidden therefore it does not happen.
WAKE UP AND FACE REALITY! it still hurts and its ten years on!
I can never seem to find enough time in my day to do everything that I want to do......Things always seem to get in the way or I end up getting far to caught up in small things that don't matter. I've been searching for a new flatmate since the current disaster...I am begginning to think that I will never ever find a normal flatmate ever! I have had so many bad experiences with people taking advantage or just being plain looney bins. the current one I don't even know his real name!
He has apparently changed his name some time back and once told me how people were contacting his mother looking for him and how funny it was that she pretended she had no idea where he was. I get worried by the idea that when he moves out he could rip me off, or break things then disappear and i would have no recourse or way of sorting it out.
Ill deal with it I know!!!!!!
