A woman in Australia has shared a heartbreaking video of her son crying and saying he wants to kill himself because of the constant bullying he faces at school because of his height.

Yarraka Bayle says her son, who has dwarfism, is constantly bullied in his school by his classmates to the point of being suicidal. In the video that appeared on the social media site Facebook, Quaden can be heard saying: “Give me a rope, I want to kill myself”

“I want to die right now! Gimme a knife I want to kill myself!” sobs the inconsolable youngster, who was born with Achondroplasia, a genetic condition that results in dwarfism. “I want to stab myself in the heart, you watch me. I want someone to kill me.”

Yarraka Bayles’s intention was to sent out a message on the impact bullying has on children., and how bullying affects families and asks for advice about how to deal with it.

“Quaden – You are stronger than you know.” Wolverine star told him in a video. “Everyone, let’s please be kind to each other. Bullying is not okay, period. Life is hard enough. Let’s just remember: every person in front of us is facing some kind of battle, so let’s just be kind.”

“What I want you to know is that you have friends — me included. I am your buddy,”
“You have a bunch of friends out here, out in the world that you haven’t met yet. We’re here, we got your back. You need to know that. It’ll get better.”
He said that as a dad of a nine-year-old, he knew first hand that kids “can be horrible.”
“And that’s because their parents aren’t doing their job,” he said. “It’s gonna be better. It’s gonna get better, sorry, it’ll get better, I promise it will. You hang in there, alright? DM me!”
