The School Brushed Of This Boy’s Injuries, Refused To Confront Bullies - His Mother Wasn’t Having It

One 'mama bear' in North Carolina was shocked that her son's bruises and scrapes were not a result of him falling like the school told her. They are the result of her son being pushed around by a bully. As the school continues to ignore the bad behavior, the bully is becoming bolder and attacks are getting worse. The mom is taking things into her own hands.

Jennifer Strickland-Stacy went to pick up her stepson, 13-year-old Skyler, when the school called and said the boy fell. When she got there, she was startled to see the boy was all bloody, scratched and bruised. She also found out the school lied.

“It was just gory," said Strickland-Stacy. "His face was bloody. I found out my son didn’t fall, my son was shoved by the boy who had been bullying him. The boy shoved him face first into the pavement.”

She found out that her son was being bullied, and that the school had not been doing anything about it. The only punishment the student had been given was a three day ban from the school bus. Since the bully was getting away with things, the violence continued to escalate from mere teasing and taunting to outright assault.

“The first incident was when he poured water on my son. The second incident, he took my son’s cell phone. The third incident, he spit in his face and shoved him. The fourth incident is when he repeatedly smacked my son in his face,” recounted the concerned mother.

Strickland-Stacy is heartbroken by how traumatized the boy is over the bullying. He's become more and more withdrawn. Still, she says the school continues to brush off her concerns and tells her they'll handle it.

The stepmom decided Skyler couldn't wait anymore. She's started driving Skyler to and from school, and is considering pulling him out and homeschooling him. She's even contacted the police.

Bullying is sometimes chalked up to 'normal' childhood behavior, but the scars that this kind of harassment and humiliation can leave on an impressionable child may last a lifetime.
