AceShowbiz - Tori Spelling just revealed that one of her kids had a rough start to the school year. In an interview with PEOPLE, the former star of "BH90210" admitted that it is hard for her to see her child getting bullied on the first day of school.
"My kids just went back to school and just when you think one got through it, one of my other children was bullied on the first day of school," she shared. "I felt like with the one, we just got through it and we are really working on re-boosting her confidence and just bringing out her skills."
Tori went on to clarify that she was referring to her daughter Stella. "The route I took with Stella is going to be different than the route I take with my other child, getting them through that situation," she added.
The mom of five noted that "our kids have to deal with a lot" nowadays. She continued, "They're dealing with in-person bullying from their peers, but then they're dealing with social bullying from adults, even other parents."
"That's where I really draw the line. And I'll speak up, any day of the week, I'll step up and say something," the TV personality stated. "It's hard because we're taught that professionals, or for kids adults, are experts in their given field. They know better."
Tori previously disclosed that Stella's "bullying started in 5th grade in Encino." She further elaborated in the July 2021 Instagram post, "Sadly, the boy that bullied her and other girls & boys wasn't stopped. His parents were on the board. They gave the school a lot of $. Sadly$ won out over the emotional care of the kids. I know i've talked bullying before. But, worse than that was the bullying she faced from her own principal."
Because of the years-long bullying, Stella reportedly has developed some "health issues." Tori detailed, "She developed headaches, stomachaches, panic attacks,& her asthma increased. Emotions can be pretty powerful & manifest into physical ailments. She missed alot of school due to this. But, what did remain was her drive & passion for baking, cooking, & crafting. She wants to open her own bakery one day."
