    Hi everyone
    I’m still being bullied at schoolboy a girl called Evelyn. I had a meeting the first day back and they moved me 3 lessons and she has moved 1. The first few days it was dirty look and she was staring at me but now it gone back to verbal bullying and my mum has a meeting with the head teacher on Friday but I don’t know how much more I can take. All I want is to zone out but I can’t everyday I cry. From the moment I wake up I can’t wait to come home.

    hiya lovely !!!! it is so terrible that you are going through this
    totally radical thought --- have your mum ring the people at THIS MORNING ( holly willoughby and philip schofield )

    have her explain you are being bullied and that you have type 1 to deal with as well -- it could just start a revolution with bullying and could get you the help you need

    please do keep with us -- we do know and understand

    Drag the other parent in and threaten the school with action unless they take some.

    Hi most schools have a “no bullying policy” which states that the school SHOULD act at all times if bullying is happening.
    1. find the policy (online or on your schools website)
    2. Make an urgent appointment to see a staff member in administration..not a head teacher a vice principal would be better. They should have a little more power...to make things happen quicker. Please go with your parent.
    3. The least they could do to start is remove you from ALL the classes this person is in with you and change your timetable...its not a solution but a start and thats not hard for them to do..i do often lol...
    4.The vice principal needs to meet with the student giving you problems and their parent/carer to determine the reasons as to why they are doing this.
    5. Schools are very individual as to how they treat bullying...some take their time and some are very quick to act.
    6. Be proactive and be present if it is happening during school is there a safe place at school like a student services office you can report to??if you dont feel safe?
    would love to know how you get on ...keep strong bullies are generally the one with the problems not you....remember that x

    Bullies are emotionally impaired and either see you as a soft target or are pathologically jealous of you. One thing bullies have in common, is they vastly overestimate themselves.

    I had a bully problem when a freshy in HS... tall and overweight guy twice my size in the next grade up. I got fed up and confronted him with "what's your problem?"... didnt back down. Ended up wrestling on the grass... I held my own, having athletic experience, and no one really won or got hurt, sort of a draw....but he never bullied me again... and no one else messed with me later either, given his size, as there were plenty witnesses. Of course, things were different back then...a few decades ago.... no one ratted and no one got in trouble or suspended. That might play out differently today...

    If you are experiencing verbal bullying, then perhaps learn some humorous countering techniques -- bullies cant deal with being laughed at. Sometimes we need to learn how to defend ourselves, verbally and emotionally, a skill that will empower you for life. If they see you as a soft target, projecting strength may deter them. If you can determine if she is jealous of you, try the unexpected, and pay her a compliment (if you can find one).

    But if the situation is untenable and threats of physical violence, yeah, get the the authorities involved. You may be dealing with a psychopath.
