“Her best friends had excluded and bullied her– says the mother – after she had argued with one of them, due to a misunderstanding, my daughter had been isolated. They made fun of her, they put her in their sights. This is why I insisted so much that she change section at school, but those girls did not leave her alone and in recent days they had rebuilt themselves“.
