The United States is focusing on stopping bullying and discrimination in schools .
The LGBT Community, The Community that is fighting racism and The Autism Community is being very proactive in fighting bullying and discrimination in schools .
But I have to say that I do Not see the SAME innitiative by parents and and schools !
No ! I will correct myself !
I do NOT see ENOUGH of the SAME innitiative by some parents and DEFINITELY 0 innitiative by some schools !
And by the way , I do not ave to be a parent to make such a statement.
I am actually experiencing this as I have an Autistic friend who is reaching out to a school in his home town and I am reaching out to parents to educate them about bullying.
And believe it or not , But parents have a LOT of exuses as to WHY they have no time to talk or have the said conversation !
And schools are simply saying ; We do our best to investigate incidents!
Well , Geuss how they investigate ( Which is a metaphoric question) ?
They wait till actually an INCIDENT occurs and THEN they call the police !
I am personally shocked about their strategy ! .
Unfortunately there are very few parents who want to be involved !
I know this because I have tried reaching out to parents on a couple of occasions and they either look at me with sympathy or expect sympathy and or say they have to head to work !
There are for example very few parents who will say ; How do I support my autistic child or to whom should I talk to about m child being bullied for xyz ?
Unfortunately I hear mostly ; OMG ! This is horrible!
And they go on with their day .
Just wanted to throw this out there !
