It's a phone call that most parents can't imagine receiving. Your school's principal has requested a meeting because your child is being suspended or expelled ... for bullying. While some parents might look at bullying as a part of growing up, in fact it actually has reached epidemic proportions across the country. More than 3.2 million students are victims of bullying each year, according to DoSomething.org, a social issues advocacy group. Every day, nearly 160,000 children miss school because they are scared of being bullied, notes the National Education Association. What's more, many incidents of bullying go unreported because kids are afraid to report them.
