My Happy Place

Last Update: January 17, 2019

Yesterday was not so good of a day for me as I found out that my child was bullied in school. I, of course tried to speak with the principal but since she's unavailable, I was asked if I would like to speak with the assistant principal.

That was not a good idea as his principle and whole idea about bullying and the incident that occurred was not aligned with mine. (that's a totally long and winding blog to focus on).

As I was consumed with my frustrations and anger after speaking with the assistant principal, I stared at my daughters and told myself to calm down and contain myself as I will not get to accomplish anything by being angry. I will have to show my children that I maybe frustrated at that time but I will not let that ruin my day and that tomorrow is another day!

So as soon as my household chores were done, I logged on to my computer and started networking with WA community, which all of a sudden made me feel better. Reading different blogs, messages and reading different member's stories, I was brought back to a better mood and a better state of mind.

WA community is such a friendly and kind virtual environment to be in. Those virtual pat on the back, hugs, sweet and kind messages are sure enough to beat that feelings of sadness and anger. Those words of encouragements that we give each and every one here sure is helping a lot of us as we all are in different stages in our lives,in different moods and emotions.

So WA members..you all ROCK!!!

Sadly some principals will never respond, and higher up the chain will only make them irritated with your kids, as you've caused trouble for them.

Honestly, if it continues, take them to karate lessons (builds self confidence), change schools or home school. The bullies often take over the schools and their parents defend their actions to the death in the principal's office.

Hope your child never experiences anything like that again.

Nida,
My husband's on the local school committee. If you cannot reach the principal and the vice principal is also of no use, you can go to the Superintendent or the School Committee with your concerns.
