Accepting it as inevitable and trying to see the good in the bully?

  • It was only a few scraping to make excuses for the behavior. What purpose does that serve?

  • NP: I guess I didn't look at it that way. I looked at the sentiment behind it. I took it as please don't lump us all together b/c of the small group of children who targeted her child & considering where they lived. I do not condone bullying whatsoever. And the mama grizzly in me would come out if it was my child.

    And see, reading the actually question, it never specified a religion - it said "deity believing" that includes me, and every other Jew, Muslim, pagan, Hindu, Sikh, etc etc etc on the site. Yet there's only certain individuals who took it personally. If it's not about you, why take it personally?

  • I'm sure people who think that way only do so because their child hasn't been bullied. While I tell my daughter to ignore people teasing ex. Oh you like billy you want to be his girlfriend, when it's in a joking manner ( she's sensitive and needs a thicker skin) if my child were being harassed, followed after, called bad names ect she needs to tell a teacher she also needs to stand up for herself.

  • I didn't take anything personally, nor did I think others did. As I said, take the problem to the school and get real help. Support online may make a mom 'feel' better, but it doesn't solve the problem.

    Did I say I wasn't taking it to the school? You assume too much.
