Dwarfism: A mother has shared a sad video of her son crying and threatening to take his own life after being bullied at school yet again.

In the video, Quaden, 9, who was born with Achondroplasia, a form of Dwarfism, is visibly sad as he describes how he plans to take his life.

The mother said ;

“I’ve just picked up my son from school, witnessed a bullying episode, rang the principal, and I want people [to] know, parents, educators teachers, this is the effects that bullying has, this is what bullying does.”

Bayles told SBS that she arrived at school to find female students “patting him on the head like a puppy” and making comments about his height.

She added: “She was patting him on the head like a little puppy. My daughter and I looked at each other and we made signals to him to ask if you are right, and he was like ‘no’ and he was looking at me horrified, like ‘don’t make a scene mum’.

“You could tell he was very uncomfortable but he was so good at trying to shrug things off, he doesn’t want people to know how much it’s affecting him, he’s so strong and confident but it’s times like these when you just see him crumble. It was just heartbreaking to watch, it made me feel helpless.”

This is the impacts of bullying! I seriously don’t know what else to do! 😭
