Re: 10-Year-Old North Carolina Girl Hangs Herself After Allegedly Being Bullied at Sc

The school perhaps has the power to stop bullying to some extent, as long as it's occurring on school property.
A lot of bullying takes place under the radar, of course. By high school (even middle...

Re: 10-Year-Old North Carolina Girl Hangs Herself After Allegedly Being Bullied at Sc

Very sad, especially for the mother.

They need to make the adults...

Re: 10-Year-Old North Carolina Girl Hangs Herself After Allegedly Being Bullied at Sc

I've been thinking a little more about what you've said here.
Personally, I wasn't alive in the 60s and was barely alive during the 70s, so I have no firsthand knowledge; just a suspicion that human...

Re: 10-Year-Old North Carolina Girl Hangs Herself After Allegedly Being Bullied at Sc

First of all, I am not persuaded that people didn't commit suicide because of bullying in the 1960s and 70s just because you say so.

Second of all, dropping out of school- especially if you were a...

Re: 10-Year-Old North Carolina Girl Hangs Herself After Allegedly Being Bullied at Sc

I think we are talking about two distinct types of "bullying".
For the record, the type that seems more common among boys- the type where big boys beat up smaller boys- may well be rectified by the...

Re: 10-Year-Old North Carolina Girl Hangs Herself After Allegedly Being Bullied at Sc

At least one, Kayla Narey, did:

Reading from a prepared statement, Narey apologized to both Phoebe Prince and her family during the proceedings.

Referring to her behavior as "unacceptable,"...

The defendants- six in all, including two boys charged with statutory rape and four girls charged with violation of civil rights, criminal harassment, disturbance of a school assembly, and stalking-...

Re: 10-Year-Old North Carolina Girl Hangs Herself After Allegedly Being Bullied at Sc

Well, the bullies who tormented Phoebe Prince to death last year defaced the memorial page her family set up for her on Facebook after she was dead, congratulating one another on finally getting rid...

Re: 10-Year-Old North Carolina Girl Hangs Herself After Allegedly Being Bullied at Sc

To add to this, remember Phoebe Prince, the bullied high school girl who committed suicide last year; she was much older than this child, and presumably had far more resources to draw upon (a 15 or...

Re: 10-Year-Old North Carolina Girl Hangs Herself After Allegedly Being Bullied at Sc

Re: 10-Year-Old North Carolina Girl Hangs Herself After Allegedly Being Bullied at Sc

Unbelievable that a 10-year-old would even have the wherewithal to kill herself.
I remember when I was middle-school aged (older than this child) sometimes being so angry or sad that I wished I...
