I have mentioned before that my DGC is autistic. There have been ongoing problems at school with bullying and name calling. I would be so grateful if any of you who believe would include him in your prayers and ask that the school support him and all those with special needs when the school term starts again. Thank you.

I will include him in my prayers starting this evening and in my healing list that he will be protected against hurt x

Me too, Doodle.
I can't bear to hear about a child being bullied.

Yes Doodle I certainly will do, I know well how autistic children can be made to feel.

Doodle, your DGC will be included in my prayers, and that his school do all they can to make him feel safe and secure.

Doodle, There was an autistic boy in my DGC class at school and he was getting teased a lot. Now his parents have moved him to a special school and he is much happier. It was with the help of the Autistic Society or whatever it's called.

Doodle, I shall light a candle in church for your relative when I visit town today.

Count me in Doodle my GD who has a cleft lip and palate was badly bullied, it took two changes of school at secondary level before she was safe.
It badly impacted on her education and she wasn't academically inclined anyway.
Now at nearly 20 she is ok and is the greatest help to me.
Please be assured all our prayers will be with you all.

Indeed Doodle consider it done, bullying in any form is absolutely disgusting and something that should and needs to be stamped out on by these Schools.

Consider it done Doodle it is such a shame children are so cruel to other children.
My DDs friend has an autistic son and he was teamed up with a School Buddy which worked very well for him,can the school offer such a scheme for your DGS.

It’s awful when a child is bullied in school, for whatever reason. Yes of course doodle I’ll pray for your boy, that his peers will see the loveliness that you see rather than focusing on what’s different about him. x

DanniRae Sat 18-Aug-18 09:26:39

I too will pray for your DGS and all other children being bullied at school x

Doodle Sat 18-Aug-18 11:11:57

Reading your replies warms my heart. Newspapers seem to be so fixated on bad stuff happening yet you are all proof of the kindness of others.

Doodle Sat 18-Aug-18 11:17:31

glamma DGS does have friends fortunately but they too are bullied as they are all "different".

grannyactivist Sat 18-Aug-18 11:18:10

Added your grandson, and others mentioned here, to my prayer list. smile

Doodle Sat 18-Aug-18 11:19:13

annsixty I had no idea about your DGD problem. I know from your posts how precious she is to you and what a help she has been. I am glad she is ok now.

kittylester Sat 18-Aug-18 11:19:18

I don't pray doodle but I hope you will accept my best wishes and supportive vibes anyway. My eldest daughter works with autistic children.

mumofmadboys Sat 18-Aug-18 11:59:14

I will pray for your GS Doodle.

Doodle Sat 18-Aug-18 13:38:14

Thank you both.
