Bullying is one of the worst things that can happen to you when you’re in high school.
Teenagers can be ruthless, and they have plenty of difficult issues of their own that many then project onto other kids. However, being able to return to a safe home after a day suffering verbal and physical abuse from your peers can really give a person the drive to battle through. Having mothers who support you and whom you can turn to when in distress is not only beautiful and heartwarming, but it’s a also a pretty fundamental need. If you’re not get love and support at school, you need to be get it from somewhere else. But what if the support you were get from your mom and dad went far beyond what you would typically expect from a mother? What if they interfered in your school life in a way that got not only you into difficulty, but themselves too? Well, when 33 -year-old Joanna Higgs found out that her daughter, Demi Knox, was being bullied at school, she made sure to take action. However, what she ended up doing to “resolve” the situation landed her straight in jail. So, what did she do precisely? Well, she was found guilty of assaulting two teenage girls who she claims were bullying her daughter. Higgs confronted her daughter’s tormentors, allegedly chasing after and punching 13 -year-old Lilly Hulse and 15 -year-old Dominique Nash. The protective mama went to extreme measures after being made aware that her daughter was being bullied relentlessly by a group of students which included these two daughters. Higgs claims that she lashed out at the two students because she was infuriated that her daughter’s school had constructed little effort to resolve the situation. She also said that she had to take her daughter out of the school because the bullying had become more intense. In fact, according to Higgs, they even came to her home and started hurling eggs at the house. “These kids were taunting me in the street, they were hanging round my house. They were hollering abuse at me and my daughter, ” Higgs explained to the Manchester Evening News . “I had tried to resolve it with the school and some of the parents after the fight, but had no pleasure. I just wanted them to stop harassing my daughter. She’d already suffered enough.”
