Bayles told SBS that she arrived at school to find female students “patting him on the head like a puppy” and making comments about his height.

“She was patting him on the head like a little puppy. My daughter and I looked at each other and we made signals to him to ask if you are right, and he was like ‘no’ and he was looking at me horrified, like ‘don’t make a scene mum’.

“You could tell he was very uncomfortable but he was so good at trying to shrug things off, he doesn’t want people to know how much it’s affecting him, he’s so strong and confident but it’s times like these when you just see him crumble. It was just heartbreaking to watch, it made me feel helpless.” She added

She explained that she shared the video online because the bullying is constant and Quaden has attempted suicide several times.
