And read about the surprising thing that happened when this mum confronted her child's bullies.

Brotherton said there had been several isolated incidents between Rathburn's son and fellow classmates but she said it was nothing that would constitute bullying, which she defines as repeated behavior by a specific individual or specific group of people. She now is no longer allowed on school property and has been placed on trespass notice for all Greenville County schools.

"Honestly, I don't know how I could have gotten my message across any other way", she told the outlet. She said anywhere her son went, his teacher followed him, including lunch and the playground.

Rathburn, herself a victim of bullying that at age 13 had driven her to attempt suicide, said that as her son continued being picked on, he began suffering from nightmares and coming up with excuses not to go to school. She said she sent the following email to the school at the time: "Picking becomes bullying really quickly nowadays, and I've taught my kids not to tolerate it, so before something transpires could you address it".

She also allegedly hurled expletives at a teacher before storming off.

The child who allegedly threw Rathburn's son off the slide was disciplined according to the school's disciplinary guidelines, Brotherton said.

Rathburn started a Facebook page called Moms over Bullies, where she tries to raise awareness of the seriousness of bullying in school and the emotional and psychological impact it may have, as well as on ways to how to discover it and how to avoid it.

Following the heated conformation, Rathburn uploaded a video to Facebook, in which she admitted that 'she snuck into the school and confronted kids that she estimated to be 9 years old'.

A teacher told Greenville County deputies investigating the incident that the mom yelled at the nine-year-olds about 'not knowing who was bullying her son but that she was going to find them and their moms, ' reported Greenville News.

She said her son has been subjected to bullying since at least last December.

Others described kids "screaming" as Ms Rathburn blew up and "cursed" about the frustrating situation she was in as a mother.

Rathburn has been charged with disrupting a school. "If they wanted to continue then I needed to talk to their mommas because the school wasn't doing anything". "I don't know when I should be concerned about these issues, but I feel like it's now because in five years it's too late".

"The appropriate reaction to unhappiness with a school response is to have a conversation with the adults in charge", district communications director Elizabeth Brotherton told CNN in an email.

Greenville County school officials said they couldn't comment on Rathburn's case, according to the newspaper.

The school district says they were unwilling to release how the alleged bully was being punished, as it would have violated another family's privacy. "Anybody making 300 decisions a day will make mistakes".
