Kinderen van Tori Spelling slachtoffers van pesten op school

Tori Spelling deelde dit weekeinde in een post op Instagram haar verdriet om haar twee oudste kinderen, die volgens de actrice allebei veel gepest worden op school.

My two 1st born... they have been thru so much bullying I can no longer not share and express ourselves - Stella is 11. She was 1 in this pic. Innocent little being that only knew unconditional love, honesty, exploration, & kindness. Her beautiful heart, full of hope. Between her last year at her elementary school or the 1st year at her middle school this human has endured enough bullying for a lifetime. Her old school in Encino, we were told she is acting like " Patient zero" and "she's playing the victim" & " we are talking to the parents of that said bully" and "he is trying to change". He never did! Never any consequences for his actions towards my daughter and other kids. This child's parents are on the board of the school. They give a lot of money to this school. Financially, we aren't able too. So, they won. We then moved kiddos to another school. One, that professed feelings and kindness as a priority. This time, my daughter was bullied so bad ( including comments about her weight and sexual things he said that my daughter didn't even know about.). This school did the right thing and expelled the boy but the damage had been done. She now associates her education with boys that have been so horrific to her. She wanted to empower others girls and be a business leader. She now has panic attacks and doesn't want to return to school. This girl, 2 years ago told me she wanted to be President or work to empower women daily. - Liam, my 1st born, is a fiesty funny guy. 2 thumbs up in this pic at 2 years old. He graduated last year from Encino but not without the principal telling us he was " unmotivated " & lazy. Poor guy thought from way he was treated by her that he was "stupid". Beyond not the case. He is a hilarious, smart, outgoing, and a creative kind guy! Then, he started his new middle school. Same school as Stella. He was bullied to the point that he developed severe emotional based headaches and stomach aches. This school ( who did help with Stella's situation) did not help with Liams. He continued to be bullied so bad we had to leave. Was hesitant to post this bc as celebs we are sometimes judged for having problems others have 😢#worriedmomma

Bij een foto, genomen toen de twee peuters waren, schrijft Spelling dat haar nu 11-jarige dochter in de afgelopen twee jaar ‘genoeg pesterijen heeft ondergaan voor een heel mensenleven’. Haar ouders zagen zich zelfs genoodzaakt een andere school te zoeken voor Stella, omdat de ouders van haar pestkop in het bestuur zaten en er daardoor niet tegen de jongen werd opgetreden. Maar ook daar werd ze gepest. ,,Dit meisje wilde twee jaar geleden nog president worden. Nu heeft ze paniekaanvallen en wil niet meer naar school’’, aldus haar moeder.

Zoon Liam (12) werd volgens Spelling zo erg gepest, dat hij door de stress lichamelijke problemen kreeg. De schoolleiding was weinig behulpzaam in het oplossen van de problemen, waardoor zijn ouders hem van school hebben gehaald, vertelt de Beverly Hills 90210-actrice. Ze schrijft dat ze heeft getwijfeld of ze haar verhaal wel zou delen, omdat ‘sterren soms veroordeeld worden als ze problemen hebben waar anderen ook mee kampen’.

Echtgenoot Dean McDermott haalde vorig jaar op Instagram al eens uit naar mensen die commentaar leverden op het gewicht van hun kinderen. ,,Ik walg van het commentaar dat hier wordt gegeven op mijn kinderen’’, schreef hij onder een post van Spelling. ,,Wat is er mis met jullie?’’

Spelling en McDermott hebben naast Liam en Stella nog drie kinderen: Hattie (8), Finn (7) en Beau (2).
