Mom Says School Hid and Lied About Bullying Before Her 8-Year-Old Died

Bullying is a problem that affects millions of students. Because parents, teachers, and other adults don’t always see it, they may not understand how extreme bullying can get.

Each day in the United States, there are an average of over 5,240 suicide attempts by young people grades 7-12. EACH DAY.

There were 13 youth suicides in Hamilton County, Ohio, last year alone. The first youth suicide in this area was an 8-year-old boy who took his own life.

Now, news is emerging that the boy had been bullied before and the school didn’t even tell the mother about it.
