How am I suppose to handle a situation where my children are being bullied and treated badly by their other parent (divorce). My kids confide in me but are not able to tell anyone else about the events, thus making it very hard to correct. How do I encourage them to be able to speak honestly about their behavior?
My daughter is 13, was bullied at school and has become extremely disengaged. She is almost always alone in her room. After weeks of working with the school on a plan to ease her back in, she agreed to try going back to school for 2.5 hours. After I dropped her off, and made sure she would be okay, and she had a teacher supporting her, she ran away from school and called me. I wasn’t angry. We talked and she knows we are there for her. But I’m broken. What are some steps that we can take to help her heal so she can return to school and other activities she used to enjoy?
