CARTHAGE, Mo.-- A group of parents and community members are fighting to end bullying in their children's schools.

A meeting was held at Carthage Municipal Park to discuss a plan to end bullying. Parents in attendance say bullying has become a large issue and they are desperate to get help for their children.

"It just breaks my heart that the amount of children we're losing because of bullying because they see no way out," says Kim House, a concerned citizen.

At the gathering they planned how they will reach out to school officials and provide self-defense classes for victims of bullying.

"I'm hoping we can put a stop to it. I'm hoping that she will be able to defend herself. I hope people realize what’s going on and more people come out-- to help out with a situation. To put a stop to it," says Jennifer York, the parent of a bullied child.

The group currently meets once a week. They plan to reach out to leaders at various school districts in the area.
