Preface to the fight for your life:
his book has been written to support all the children who have been bullied and no one helped. To all the families that have lost a child to suicide when their child felt that suicide was a better outcome than being bullied every day.
If you are reading this book, your child may have fallen into this trap and you as a parent are seeking answers and help when the system fails your child. Across this nation and around the world we are seeing an epidemic of bullying, cyberbullying and harassment. Why are we seeing an increase? In the 70’s when I was in High School if someone was bullied, we were told by Principals that it will pass or this is just part of life. This was the attitude a lot of Administrators conveyed to our children. In some ways this message is still told to your child across the nation in today’s climate. I believe that with the invention of the internet, a family can make a post to face book, twitter, YouTube or other social media outlets and millions of people around the world are aware of this families bullying problems in the matter of minutes. The world can now be made aware of your child’s problem. Also children can also see the all of the bad messages about bullying. In some ways social media is your friend and then a few posts later, the web becomes your family’s worst night mare. Organizations can no longer cover up bullying issues.
