The Todd Effect
10/17/2012 1:09:00 AM
The tragic death of bullying victim Amanda Todd is bringing up some awful memories for others who were set upon their younger years. Rob, who was physically bullied through High School in Vancouver, was reduced to tears as he watched Amanda’s good-bye on You Tube and he is 46 now. You can see his thoughts at:
Rob says telling victims to suck it up is not the answer. He just hopes if you see an Amanda that you’ll reach out and let her know someone cares. Sandra writes to say she has two children who get bullied at school with no support from those who should make a difference. One child is bullied in person and on her cell. Another was hit with a golf club. Sandra says schools talk a good line about no bullying but they don’t enforce it, and Sandra is not the only parent telling me that. She says the bullying leads to depression and there will be more suicides if we don’t bring the bullies to justice. Do you know an Amanda or a Rob who might need a hug, or do you have an effective way of dealing with a bully when the school won’t? Let me know.
