ABSTRACT
ONE grey, rainy London afternoon, my 11-year-old son arrived home from school with his shirt torn and hair matted. There was a sign sticky-taped to his back. It read: 'Kick me, I'm a retard.' I ripped it off in fury as a tidal wave of frustration and pity surged through me. 'The other kids called me a moron,' he whispered, his wide blue eyes filling with tears. 'What does that mean? Am I a moron, Mum?' Trying to protect a child with special needs from being bullied is like trying to stop ice melting in the desert. There were calls to the school, meetings, promises of closer scrutiny in the playground. But basically, when it comes to it defeating bullying — particularly when your child is an obvious target — is like leading the charge with a butter knife.
