Not only to children, adults too, everyone and anyone can get bullied, and it's never something to be ashamed of. Statistics show that one out of every five children is getting bullied.

Most times bullying takes place at schools and environments where children gather socially or for other reasons.

However, that doesn't mean bullying cannot happen somewhere else; therefore complaints of harassment should be taken with utmost seriousness.  

Sophie's dilemma

Carrie Golledge, a mother from Tiverton, Devon, has opened up about her sweet little daughter's ordeal. She shared a picture of her baby girl, Sophia, laying on the hospital bed and in bad shape.

She explained that it was the dangers of bullying that got her daughter to where she is. Little Sophie was constantly bullied by a girl who was supposed to be her best friend.

She tries to control Sophie by telling her when and what to eat, sometimes deciding if she will eat at all.

Sophie's experience made her feel bad and her parents had to take her to the hospital. Little Sophie had tried to complain to her teachers, but they told her to play with other friends.

Not like she didn't try, but the bullying child got other children for herself, leaving Sophie always on her own during play time. Not so psychologically healthy for a growing child.

Carrie said her and her husband, Chris, tried to complain to the school but situations only got worse.

The picture which Carrie posted shows Sophie looking exhausted after a high fever and constant vomiting.

As a mother, Carrie explained that the experience put her to tears countless times as she watched her daughter dread school and have no friends.

What then can you do if your child is facing bullies

1. First off, you want to be connected to your children, let them know it's always okay to tell you anything. And that nothing is too much, you're always going to be there to listen to them.

2.  Also letting them know you intend to take action that will not hurt them. Many kids are scared to talk to their parents because of how they will act. You are their friend.

3. Its okay to speak out. Nowadays, no child wants to be the one that told on others as it's terrible to be the snitch.

You should let your children understand that some situations require them to speak out loud, as loud as they can. They should never inconvenience themselves in silence.

4. Act as quickly as possible. Don't just listen. Act! Your child needs you, so it's the time to put on your mommy or daddy shoes and be the grown up.

5. Understand the use of communication and body language. Explain to your children that they need to communicate to whoever tries to bully them that they do not plan on getting bullied.

Body language is also essential, looking at the bully directly in the eye as they stand straight. They may be scared, but explain that it’s okay to be afraid of.

We wish little Sophie good luck with her friends in her new school. Parents and teachers need to be more sensitive to kids when it comes to the issue of bullying. With all hands on deck, the war against bullying will take a faster turn.
