I also heard about an 8 year old who recently (maybe a couple months back) came home from school and committed suicide because of bullying. It’s awful, 8 year olds shouldn’t even know what suicide is.
I think schools need to have a zero tolerance policy on bullying. They aren’t taking it seriously enough. It’s not “just” teasing or picking on or kids being kids. Even if the bully victims don’t commit suicide, it’s still very damaging to their mental health.
