"His started in fifth grade," Davis explains, when referring to her eldest son.
She says, "He'd come out to the car crying, not wanting to go to school, waking up with stomach aches. You call the school and they say, 'no there was no issue here, we don't tolerate it.'"
According to Abilene Independent School District's Student Code of Conduct, if any student or parent who has a complaint alleging bullying, they should immediately report the complaint to a campus administrator, teacher or counselor for investigation.
"They keep talking about how they're going to make a bully stand and how they're standing against bullies, no, they're turning their backs against bullies and they young kids have to fight," says Davis.
As a result of bullying Davis' son's went from making straight A's and B's to failing.
Davis explains, "I was like John they said you can ask the kids in your class for help. He said, 'Mom, when you're sitting in class and you hear you shouldn't be here, you're a retard, you don't belong in this class, you're so stupid.' he said 'I'm not going to ask for help.'"
As a result of his grades slipping so much, he was asked to look into an alternative method for learning..so his mother took him out and he has been at home since October 15th, of 2011.
"He was there to get an education, not to learn how to fight," says Davis.
Davis' son explains how he turned to cutting himself as a way to ease the pain of being bullied.
Kathy knows teens do this and does not want her son to become a statistic.
"The world is a great place to be in and more kids find it better to not be here because the adults can't stand up and tell their kids what they're doing is wrong," Davis says.
Despite her son's past, and the odds against him, Kathy knows he will succeed.
Davis says, "I'm going to show them, my kid's going to make it. I'll make sure of it."
