I have been having this problem with a boy. He texted me inappropriate questions and word got around. That was a year ago, and my mom requested him to not be in any of my classes this year.
The problem is, he's in my language arts and social studies class anyway! What should I do? I am scared he will do something to me, especially because everyone found out what he texted to me.
Hey girl, you don’t have to deal with this sticky sitch alone. This guy has no right to make you feel uncomfortable or harass you at your own school—or anywhere else for that matter. First, tell your mom that this boy is in your classes. Most likely, she’ll be upset and want to meet with your principal ASAP.
When you and mama meet with your principal, make sure you’re there and explain exactly why you don’t want this guy in your class. Let your principal know how much he gets on your nerves. You could say, “I feel really uncomfortable and nervous when I’m around him. I’m afraid he’s going to do something to me.” Hopefully, your principal will listen and actually do something about your situation.
But for now, be sure to keep your distance. Don’t even say anything to the terrible texter. If he talks to you, just ignore him or get your BFFs to back you up. Who knows? Maybe he’ll leave you alone and allow you to move on with your life. Most importantly, remember none of this is your fault and you’re not a
bad person. You should feel great about standing up for yourself.
Lots of love,
