Yarraka Bayles, a distraught mother has taken to social media to share the painful moment her nine-year-old son with dwarfism asked for a rope to end his life.
According to her, she took to social media to share this just to show parents and teachers how much damage his bullies have caused.
As he was picked up in the car after school Quaden was in floods of tears, telling his mum: “Give me a rope, I want to kill myself.”
The boy also said: “I just want to stab myself in the heart… I want someone to kill me.”
In the video his mum shared, she 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 effect that bullying has.”
Yarraka says when she arrived to pick him from school, she saw another pupil patting Quaden’s head and making fun of his height.
“I want people to know how much it is hurting us as a family. I’ve got a son that is suicidal [after] anything that happens at school or in public, which is almost every time we’re in public.” She added.
