      Things like this are so awful to see :( a boy tried to hang himself after being bullied at school over a kids TV show he liked to watch. The boy enjoyed watching My Little Pony and due to that he was bullied.

      It's a cruel cruel world we live in that children do not feel like they can enjoy something they enjoy doing or watching without being worried about being bullied for it.

      This is an all to common story. People that bully do not deserve to be in society.

      I agree, usually the bullies feed off the fact that you go to an adult which only makes them bully more.

      So sad. Something needs to be done to bulies.

      My suggestion is every morning at assembly get all the bullies up on the stage and let the other kids call them names etc see how they like it.

      sounds crazy but my english teachr did this once when i wasat school myself and my friend were being bullied by tese 3 girls so she gave us the opportunity to turn the tables round and let them see how it felt No im not saying this works for everyone but that daywe al ended up becoming good friends

      Sounds like an idea I feel all schools should think about Tiggy, may sound cruel but I'd there is a chance it will work I wouldn't see any reason for them not to try.
