Mother Takes Matters Into Her Own Hands After Son Is Bullied

Although some parents may believe that bullying is simply a natural part of the school yard and is even ‘character building,’ this North Carolina mother is sick and tired of hearing about her son’s bullying. With cases of bullying becoming increasingly common, it is the responsibility of both parents and the child’s school to ensure that every child is safe, happy and free from abuse while they are at school.

Ms. Jennifer Strickland-Stacy was faced with the horrifying information that another child had pushed her boy over at school and went unpunished while her son suffered from severe injuries.

When Ms. Strickland-Stacy received a call from a teacher at her step son’s school and was told that he had had a bad fall, she immediately rushed to pick him up and take him home to rest.

However, upon arriving, she found her stepson covered in scratches, bruises and covered in blood. She stated that “it was just gory. His face was bloody.” Ms. Strickland-Stacy immediately knew something wasn’t right about Skylar’s supposed fall.

Knowing that her step-son, Skylar, had been having trouble with a bully at school, Ms. Strickland-Stacy knew that he must have been the cause of her step son’s injuries. The 13-year-old boy was taken to a doctor to assess the extent of his injuries. When the doctor told her that Skylar had a fractured eyebrow bone from the impact of another child pushing his face to the ground, Ms. Strickland-Stacy was livid.

The school had done absolutely nothing to stop or reprimand the previous incidents involving Skylar and the other boy, only going as far as to tell Ms. Strickland-Stacy that they’ll “handle it” and banning the boy from catching the same bus as Skylar for three days. When considering the severity of the prior incidents which, according to Skylar’s stepmom, included being spat on, it is simply unacceptable that the school has done nothing to help young Skylar or punish the bully.

Ms. Strickland-Stacy has had enough of the lack of concern for her stepson's safety, and has contacted the police and drives Skylar to and from school every day so he can avoid the bully. Ms. Strickland-Stacy has also considered taking Skylar out of school and home-schooling him.
