"Mom, I want to go to heaven": the desperate request of an 8-year-old girl, victim of bullying

An 8-year-old girl who is a victim of bullying at a school in Río Gallegos, province of Santa Cruz, described to her mother the hard experience she is going through when she constantly receives physical aggression.

“Mom, I want to go to heaven”was the phrase with which the minor pointed out to her mother what she has to live in primary school number 39 in the El Carmen neighborhood of Río Gallegos.

In this sense, the complainant woman revealed, in dialogue with Clarín: “This has been going on for a long time, I would say since the beginning of the year. And it has already happened to adults, that’s why I made it public. It’s that my girl has been beaten, with bumps on her head, a black eye and blows to the body”.

“It (bullying) started in a milder way last year. I spoke with the director. They told us that they were going to give us a solution, but we are still waiting. At that time and with that promise, I was not going to make any complaint,” highlighted the woman, who added that her concern escalated to higher levels when in a drawing the girl indicated that a boy “I wanted to kill”.

In turn, he considered that the girl is attacked because of the way her hair is done, because of her clothes and because of a pair of sneakers that her grandfather gave her and that have platforms.

“I’m afraid because if things continue like this, this could end very badly. I didn’t send her to school anymore for fear that she would make a mistake or do something crazy. She’s still very young”he highlighted.

In this sense, he stressed that he hopes that “those who have to intervene intervene” so that the minor can go to school without fear.
