This mess has to stop! For any parent out there, teach your child about bullies so they recognize what they are. Tell your kids to talk to their teachers if they have bullies, and make sure these teachers take immediate action. An 8-year-old from Georgia was bullied to the point of having her scalp ripped by bullies, according to Atlanta Journal Constitution. The third-grader, Aolani Dunbar said the kids kept pulling at her hair. The kids had been picking on her for two weeks because she got hair extensions. Aolani said even at the playground, the kids were taking turns pulling at her hair, to the point of leaving a gaping wound on the crown of her head. It was so bad her parents had to shave her head to prevent any infection. Are you thinking what I'm thinking? Where the hell were the teachers to prevent this? Well according to the AJC, Aolani's family said she suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder, and that may have kept her from confiding in an adult earlier. But still, the teachers could have seen at least some of this. So far, one child received an in-school suspension. The hair pulling caused so much damage, doctors said the girl may never grow hair on the injured part of her scalp again and may need skin grafts. But as support for the little girl, her mother and others have shaved their heads. No matter the age of your child, teach our kids to speak up about anything they feel isn't comfortable. Don't just brush it off. I know I would definitely catch a fit and find out how no teacher noticed this.
