Fed up with bullying, mother vows to pull teen from Tyngsboro school

Full story: Lowell Sun

Rene Godfrey is pulling her 15-year-old daughter out of the Tyngsboro Middle School because she says the principal and police failed to protect her from "relentless bullying" by five of her eighth-grade classmates.

Best way is to ignore it, let it roll off your shoulder. No reaction will cause them to go after someone else.

In the long run, from my experience, the bullies are the least successful people as adults.

That really just does not work. Bullies these days are relentless and will keep pecking the person until something happens. My daughter was bullied by a girl who kept sucking her in as a friend until my daughter got older and wiser. The schools do not take bullying seriously. If my daughter came home from school with a black eye criminal charges would be pressed and a lawsuit. Your children only have one childhood and they will depend on their selfesteem to carry them thru the rest of their lives.

As an outsider reading these comments I wonder does anyone else out there feel it is irresponsible for the Lowell Sun to post all of this content? Would it have been more appropriate for the reporter to get all sides to a story before running the newspaper print, or better yet, not print it at all so school and police officials could handle the situation as judiciously and respectfully to all as possible?

This is by far the saddest piece of news that I have seen all day. It is shameful.

sounds like people need to mind themselves and the mother who is coming out with this needs to stop watching lifetime at home and get a job. I bet she's a stay at home mom who who does nothing but blame everyone else for everything. People don't get bullied without reason. The girl probably started it and can't take the heat. Oh well

I see one parent Mrs. Dubois saying that Mrs. Godfrey should stay out of her daughter's business, am I the only one seeing Mrs. Dubois getting involved in her own daughter's business. I see bullying here too! Mrs. Dubois would be better off directing her comments directly to Mrs. Godfrey and not in a public forum.

You are going to need it. This is seriously the most ignorant group of young ladies, and I use the word loosely, that I have ever seen. To think they are going to high school next year is a scary thought. Ther really need to raise the bar in tyngsboro. These girls are not just intellectually ignorant, but socially also.
what a shame

If adults are posting and identifying minor children I think the Sun should trace these commentators and criminally prosecute

This story is not at all the whole sotry there is so many parts missing of this story i am a parent of 1 of the "bullies in her grade" my daughter was accused of untruthfull situations. This is way out of hand for it to be in the news paper clearly the parent wanted some attion. But for her to talk about my daugheter and my childs frineds moms children is not right. If anyone in the right mines would undertsand that there is most deffintly TWO sides of everystory. Also this is not the first time my daughter has been involved with the mother of this news report, in 5th grade this mother was verbly yelling at my daughter and had nothing nice to say. Thank You.
Are you and your daughter in the same English class? You really "sound" like a moron.

I have to agree....these two mothers and some of the children are making things much worse and they are risking have criminal charges brought against them for namimg the minors. I think the Sun should remove this entire post.

This is so sad to hear, bulling is getting out of control. I feel so bad for this girl and her family, so many children and teenagers these days are losing their self-esteem all together because of their peers. It needs to be stopped.

Hopefully these horrible girls will be punished and exposed for who they really are. Good for Mrs. Godfrey for protecting her daughter and trying to raise a decent member of society. In the end girls like those bullies end up with wasted lives. In 10 years, Gabrielle will be a productive member of society and those girls will be hanging out at a bar talking about their "glory days" that never were.

Dearest Gabrielle Dubois,
I think you're a belittling little **** that needs to be shown what it's like to be bullied, you're nothing but a two-faced brat. I've known you for years and you have nothing better to do then talk **** about kids you go to school with, and you have been on Gabriella Godfrey's case for years. There is absolutely nothing wrong with Gabriella Godfrey, just because her mother Rene Godfrey cares whether or not she is safe and doing stuff a 14-15 years old is suppose to do doesn't mean that there is something wrong with her, i don't know if your lacking the mother figure at home and jealous of Rene Godfrey's actions with her daughter, but you seriously need to grow up and get over yourself, because you sweetie, are getting NO WHERE in life. so I hope you can find whatever your looking for in your mother... oh wait she is too busy at the STRIPPER CLUB..isn't that where you said your mom was getting you a job in 4 years? HAVE FUN SLUT
i dont know about anyone else. but im pretty sure this is a fine example of bullying. and if i had to put money on it i would guess Queen B is one of the two older bullys or the mother. And im not a lawyer or a cop but im pretty sure you can get in deep trouble for that comment. have fun getting your IP tracked :)

i think that Mrs. Godfrey is blowing this completely out of perportion. i used to go to TES when i was in elementary school and was friends with Gabby and she used to get picked on throught elementary school too. i dont get why, now, shed going to the school board... i just thing this is beeing taken waaaaaay to far with the beating up and everything but theres always two sides to every story. maybe gabby did something to upset one of the girls and the bully and her friends ganged up on her and such, but still... most of this is probably blown waaay out of perportion to go to the papers. i get going to the police and the prinicpal and the school board etc.. but its a privet thing, i dont thing Gabby or the Bullies want exposure

queen b serious....thats how you talk...this started out between two girls, it was mrs godfrey who made it into this big drama...i've heard the recording of mrs. godfrey and am totally appauled that this is how she speaks to the girls dropping f bombs every minute like she is there peers...it is totally outragous, then in the recording she moves on to racial slears and then quickly moves to talking bad about most of the town. Did I mention she threatens to poke out the vice principals eye.Because children are friends of the girl who got into a physical fight with mrs. godfreys daughter does not make them bullies...seriously this is about two girls, her daughter and one other, yes comments were made by other girls, not threats, big differnce. When you get adults going up to young girls in malls and saying things to them is just not right. Oh did I mention mrs. godfrey was calling young girls sluts to there faces last year. I witnessed that myself. And that she got her daugther kicked out of dancing school because she was dropping the f bomb at a dance recital in front of pre-schoolers. There is a lot of history to this and I am dissappointed that this is still going back and fourth days later. I myself have a police report put on file in regards to the Godfreys to protect my child. No one is an angle in any of this, but, there are proper channells to take in regards to this. Must I also add that I think Mr. Champa is AWESOME and tries the best he can to resolve any issue that comes up. Please for everyone involved let the proper channels handle this and enough back and fourth. In advance I know i am not the best speller.

To mind your business
Lowell, MA.........

Some kids do get bullied for no reason at all or for a reason such as "you are fat, you are too skinny, your hair is ugly, your nose is big, etc...sometimes physical attributes that children are born with and can't control. There are kids who are bullied who certainly did not do anything to deserve it. Wake up. You either aren't a parent or you're the parent of a bully. I volunteer in a school in another town and I see it happen and it starts as young as Kindergarten. I don't know this situation personally but to say that all kids who get bullied did something to deserve it is ridiculous.

First of all, I highly doubt that there is a video recording of Rene Godfrey, & I'm pretty sure there isn't a police report on the Godfrey's because they would have been told about it while making out their own police report, you need to get your facts straight and stop thinking your all high and mighty, because you aren't. the Godfrey's do not associate with ANYONE in Tyngsboro, because they are ALL fake and turn on each other, come on you got school faculty bad talking the Godfrey family? come on now.. who is suppose to be professional now? you all need to get a life and stop harassing this family. okay. AND "WOW" like why but in? you're from Lowell, & of all places, im pretty sure if Gabriella was one of your kids you'd be doing the same thing, if not shame on you. you don't know how a person is going to react until they are put in the situation, and as for Rene Godfrey saying "she will poke the vice principals eye out" I've known her for over 20 years, and have never said anything of that sort come out of her mouth, and as for an advance in you cant spell right? hello..spell check. that's dummy proof. && Rene didn't get her child kicked out of dance by swearing in front of preschoolers, she took her out because Gabriella didn't want to dance there anymore, yeah Rene swears, but who doesn't? FUCK FUCK FUCK.,what are you gonna do? BLOW ME & IF YOU WANT THE POLICE CAN TRACK MY IP ALL THEY WANT,, I'M NOT SCARED. Maybe if they did their job, shit like this wouldn't be happening.

Gabby was also suspended after the "brutal" attack because she was the instigator. She was passing around not so nice pictures of the other girl and bullying her. You people have no idea what the real situation is, just what you read in the paper. Gabby is NOT an angel. She tells her mother only what she wants her to know. This is a case of typical teenage girls arguing back and forth on both sides. It isn't one sided. Only difference is 1 of the parents has to be the center of attention.

I completely agree. Most of this is a fine example of the cyber-bullying that is going on between the children. I will be flagging a lot of these posts in hopes that the Lowell Sun will take this article off their website or prevent comments on the thread. This is really terrifying.
