In precinct 65 we having three school Bernice J. Causey Middle, Dawes Intermediate and Hutchens Elementary Schools. It's the job of the Mobile County School System to educate our youth, preparing them intellectually to compete in an international world. I’m willing to speak at all three local at least three time a year in school assemblies. To inform students bulling is a very serious crime which can lead to suspensions and/or expulsions, to jail time for criminal misdemeanors and felonies. Also attending PTO meetings to inform parents to look for the signs of cyber bullying, an if their child is bulling he or she will be placed in custody by local authority’s on criminal charges. Some individuals or parents think this is a joke and encourage such behavior, thinking this will give them or their children self-esteem by intimidating, slandering, damaging and injuring a person's character an reputation in hopes that others won’t find them so appealing. Bulling, can lead to other social problems later in life, like gang related criminal activity, sexual abuse, domestic violence and death. It is our job as parents to be there to protect them not only physically but mentally, given them simple words of wisdom on how to deal with life as a child.
