School is back in session, and not every kid is happy about it. Many kids struggle to make friends with their classmates… or even worse, get bullied by them.
It can be hard, for both the kids and their parents, to know what to do in those situations. Sometimes the school staff can’t do much to help.
So sometimes, the best thing to do is call in a superhero.
Lydia Calculli is a 3-year-old girl from Crystal River, Florida. She attends daycare, but had been having a rough time the past few months.
Her mother, Erica Calculli, says that her daughter kept returning home with bruises and injuries. “At first it was very minor and I thought it happened just playing around, so I let it go,” Erica told WTSP.
But the more it went on, but when she returned with a black eye one day it was clear that she was facing serious bullying at school.
“She told me that a bunch of girls and one boy hit her and a girl threw a shoe at her eye,” Erica said.
The mom was heartbroken, and even worse, saw the effects of bullying start to creep in: “She started getting violent towards me and I knew that wasn’t normal.”
She says she contacted the school, but nothing came of it. So instead, she got a little outside help… from Batman.
