After a month of being bullied and having his life turned upside down by bullying, a 14-year-old boy has revealed how he had no choice but to take up a cane.
The story of the day: A 14-yr-old Boy and a caneThe teen’s story: After years of being harassed by a group of boys in the neighbourhood, the boy decided to take action.
The teenager, who did not want to be identified, is the first to be featured in a new documentary called I was so afraid to walk alone.
“I was scared to walk because I would be scared for my life, because I wouldn’t be able to go back home and live with my family,” he said.
“It’s not fair.
The bullies were bullying me for years.”
The teen, who has a learning disability, told The ABC that he was bullied by three boys over his disability and the bullying escalated to violence after he tried to leave the neighbourhood.
“One of the boys said ‘I’m going to get you’,” he said, recalling the words.
“Then they came up to me and started hitting me.”
“It was like, ‘Get in the car, get in the back seat, get out of here.'”
The teenager has now returned home after a year-long recovery and he says the bullying was “very different” to the previous bullying.
The video was released to coincide with the World Autism Day on February 25, and features a young boy who, like many, has been bullied at school for years.
“My life was completely destroyed because of the bullying and because of me being bullied,” he told The Australian.
“They said I was stupid, I was an idiot, I’m a fat pig, I shouldn’t have been allowed to go to school.”
The 14-yo boy said he was the first one to take a cane, but after a month he realised that it wasn’t the right thing to do.
“That was the only way I could get myself out of it,” he explained.
“And that’s when I got the cane.”
The documentary is part of a project called I Was So Terrified to walk that aims to highlight the impact of bullying and discrimination on the mental health of people with autism spectrum disorders.
