My son is being bullied by an adult - Page 2

post #21 of 22
I think MaggieLC is spot on...no contact is the best. The adult in question is clearly pathological, and change is unlikely. Probably better to create attractive alternatives to hanging out at her place, and explain to your son in whatever way that seems appropriate that she is not a safe person to be around...like a rattlesnake or poisonous spider.

What a terribly sad thing. I'm so sorry. It's so unfair that bullies exist, that they can change people's lives without thinking twice. I was bullied in high school by a jealous girl and her friends and I was eventually hospitalized because my anxiety got so bad I couldn't eat or keep food down.

I think you have received great advice. I, too, wouldn't hesitate to involve the police again. I would also let other parents in the neighborhood know (not going door to door per say, but when you see them), because I agree completely that she is very dangerous and will pick on other kids. And document everything you can, just do you have it. I know this sounds petty, but could you get a trampoline? My mom got one for free in the paper when we were younger.

And I just want to say, regarding your first post, you are NOT a bad mother. It sounds like you have been there believing in and advocating tirelessly for your son and that is wonderful.
