    Re: My daughter has withdrawn herself from school because bullying and harassment

    I would suggest that she speak with the college admissions department of the school she wishes to attend. They would be able to advise her on the courses and marks she needs to ensure her enrollment.

    Re: My daughter has withdrawn herself from school because bullying and harassment

    Hey Darkside . Sorry to hear she is still having problems. Did you guys try homeschooling at all or just time off school? Is she more a type of an idependent learner or she likes to be in a class?
    I am so disappointed with the school system myself. I do not agree the children need to go through all this violence and abuse to "toughen up". This does not sound right to me.

    This is always an option, but a little bit longer and more expensive way to go. :think:

    I don't know of anyone who works inside or outside of a school system that says children need to tolerate bullying to toughen up. I work in a high school and those types of actions would not be condoned within our building. I really think that is an old school mentality or generalization that no longer applies in this day and age.

    Re: My daughter has withdrawn herself from school because bullying and harassment

    Darkside,

    You may be interested in listening in on the following online webinar:

    Bullying and Vulnerable Populations

    Wednesday, November 19, 2014 7:30 PM - 8:30 PM EST

    The webinar is sponsored by the New Jersey Center for Tourette syndrome, but I think there might be sufficient general information presented that you may find it informative for your daughter's situation.

    Complete details for about New Jersey Center For Tourette Syndrome webinars, system requirements, codec download etc.

    There is no charge to attend a New Jersey Center for Tourette Syndrome & Associated Disorders (NJCTS) Wednesday Webinar.

    Hi rdw, I do not know details about the actions against Darkside's daughter. But, speaking as a parent, who had considered home schooling, one of my concerns was that the children do not grow up in a "real" environment, because they are kind of "isolated from peers" at home. And I thought they do not learn to deal with negative situations. I soon realized, that negative experiences are not needed for one to develop their social skills or personality. It is not really old mentality, more of a realization. Some schools are better than others. They have the anty-bullying propaganda and policies now everywhere.

    A "real environment " means learning to adapt and communicate - it does not mean tolerating bullying.
