In Emotional Facebook Video, Fourth-Grader Asks People to Stop Bullying
Parents| | By Sierra McCleary-Harris
Help stop bullying. That’s what a 10-year-old girl in Duryea, Pennsylvania wants to accomplish. In an emotional video, she asked people to stop bullying one another.
Jenn Slater shared the video of her daughter, Cassidy, on her Facebook page. The fourth-grader holds signs up, describes herself, and says she has been bullied since first grade.
“One day during recess, a group of kids grabbed my purse off a teacher, and spit on it and me,” one sign read.
Cassidy goes on to say that she feels alone and feels that she has no one.
Dear Scranton School District (and all school districts)
Your job is not only to teach our children…
Jenn shared the video on her Facebook page after the Scranton School District asked the social media platform to take it off the 10-year-old’s page since she is underage.
“I will be my daughters voice I will share her story and I hope others will share too [sic],” Jenn posted.
What are you doing to combat or deal with bullying? We’d love to hear about it on Facebook, and don’t forget to SHARE this video to help stop bullying and support Cassidy!
