Mom shares video of bullied son, 9, saying he wants to die

Quaden Bayles with Rabbitohs star Latrell Mitchell

Quaden was born with achondroplasia, the most common form of Dwarfism, and has had to deal with incidents such as this since he was three.

He won and broke hearts in equal measures around the world yesterday when his mum shared devastating footage of Quaden after picking him up from school "in hysterics".

Quaden's mother Yarraka, a staunch advocate for Indigenous rights and Dwarfism, told NITV News she is going to continue to push for more change within the education system to raise more awareness about children living with disability.

"I just want to let you know that we love you, we support you and you can contact me if you just want to talk or if you need any help", Williams said in the video.

"We just want to wish you all the best, brother", star Latrell Mitchell said, speaking on behalf of the players, in the video. Bayles said in a Facebook post that includes the video.

"This is the impact bullying has on a nine-year-old that just wants to go to school, get an education, have fun".

On Wednesday, an Australian mother took to Facebook to make an impassioned plea against bullying as her son, 9-year-old Quaden, begged to die after years of abuse over his dwarfism.

Since sharing the video, Bayles has been inundated with kind messages of support from friends and strangers alike.

The heartbroken mother of bullied boy Quaden Bayles has shared another video of her son, listing all the cruel names he's called by his tormentors.

Ms Bayles says that a number of local MPs have reached out but due to the volume of calls she has not yet been able to respond. Every time it happens, I'll be doing a live video so that people know.

Yarraka Bayles originally shared the video to illustrate the effects of bullying and to get parenting advice from others. "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".

"Hey Quadey, how you going, cuz?" he said of the boy that he described as a "little super hero" after their 2016 meeting. "It made me feel helpless".

This act of kindness garnered praise from throughout the rugby league and sporting community. "For the first time it was when he was six-year-old and I was shocked to know as to how a child could be treated like this", she said.

She appeals to other parents and schools to educate children on the serious consequences of bullying, which may, like in her son's case, even make them suicidal.

"It's nearly every single day, so we need to be doing something more".
