Dear Aunty Sprout,
If you have any advice to offer, please leave your comments below (it’s free and quick to comment but we recommend keeping posts Sprouty and anonymous!).
TheSprout has teamed up with Meic – the national information, advice and advocacy helpline for children and young people in Wales – which has posted as Aunty Sprout below!
Aunty Sprout: Hi,
It is important to deal with the treatment you’ve received at school and we can discuss the steps that can be taken to try and deal with what has been happening to you.
You can talk to someone about the bullying and how it’s making you feel – SNAP Cymru have an app – Wmff app or you can contact them via phone -03451203730, email (firstname.lastname@example.org)with your phone number or via their websitewww.snapcymru.org or contact Childline at www.childline.org.uk or on 0800 1111.
Bullying.co.uk also have lots of advice which you might find useful.
In relation to the bullying and how your school have dealt with it:
First – your school have a duty to address the bullying once you made them aware of it. Some things have been suggested (like her attending counselling with you) but you don’t feel that this will solve the problem or will be effective.
The important thing is not to give up hope.
There are lots of things that can be put in place to address what is happening to you.
(phone 0808 8023456, text: help to 84001 or IM on www.meiccymru.org)
Don’t keep your feelings to yourself
– and if you need further help with any of the things mentioned then contact Meic or one of the other services we have suggested.
We really hope that things improve for you.
If you have a problem or question that you would like some advice on, why not share it with TheSprout community? Here’s what’s been asked before on the new Sprout and here’s the Aunty Sprout archive on the old site.
