Please help. My 14 year old son has just arrived home from school in tears. He is being bullied. Unfortunately he is very sensitive, but this guy is 4 years older than him and is making his life a misery. I have been to his bus driver(he goes on the same bus ) and he has moved the guy to the front of the bus where he can keep an eye on him.My son says he calls him gay and has been shooting him with a pellet gun. I have also been to his principal who has been keeping an eye on them, and also confiscated the bully's pellet gun.My son is heartbroken, and this bully torments him all the time, calling him gay and other names I'm sure my son hasn't told me about. My son tells me that he has retaliated some times but this does not seem to have done any good.T(my son) does not want me to go to the bully's parents as he is afraid that this will only make matters worse. T told me that this guy gave him a really hard time last year but when I asked him why he didn't tell me about it he said he didn't want to worry me. I am in bits and so upset I don't know what to do.Do I approach the bully myself or my husband, or maybe his parents, against the wishes of T. PLEASE HELP!!!!!
