A worried mother has shared a disturbing and heartbraking video of her nine-year-old son threatening to kll himself after he was bullied at school over his dwarfism.
Yarraka Bayles, from Brisbane, filmed her son Quaden crying in the car after she picked him up from school on Wednesday and publicly shared the video on Facebook to show the effects bullying has on young children.
The mother of the 9-year-old boy was broken after she got to his school and found another school mate bullying him which led to the boy breaking down in tears saying he wants to kill himself.
In the heart wrecking video, which has been viewed over fourteen millions times and still counting Quaden also said: ‘I just want to stab myself in the heart… I want someone to kill me.’
His heartbroken mother who can be heard crying at the background went live on her social media page to bring awareness on the effect of bullying and how her son and the entire family have had to go through some very emotional times. She explained how she is always very watchful of him because he has been placed on suicide watch.
Since sharing the video, Ms Bayles has been inundated with kind messages of support from friends and strangers alike.
The Indigenous All Stars NRL team were the latest to reach out to the family, inviting Quaden to walk them onto the pitch on Saturday.
They will take on New Zealand Maori Kiwis at CBUS Super Stadium on the Gold Coast.
Celebs from all works of live have extended a hand of support to Ms Bayle and her family.
Ms Bayle says she normally tries to keep distressing moments such as this private but felt she had been left with no choice but to go public.
‘We try to be as strong as positive as possible and only share the highlights… but this is how bullying affects a nine-year-old kid,’ she said in the video.
At the start of the five-minute clip, Ms Bayles said: ‘I just picked my son up from school, witnessed a bullying episode, rang the principal and I want people to know this is the effect bullying has. This is what bullying does.
‘So can you please educate your children, your families, your friends because all it takes is one more instance… and you wonder why kids are killing themselves.’
‘This is the impact bullying has a nine-year-old kid who just wants to go to school, get an education and have fun but every single fricking day something happens.
‘Another episode another bullying, another taunt, another name-calling.’
As Quaden sobbed, Ms Bayles asked for help from anyone viewing the footage.
‘So is there any advice or support or anything that other parents have done?
‘I’ve got some good advice but I need more, I want people to know how much it is hurting us as a family,’the shattered mother said .
