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

  • my girls can take alot of verbal bullying, but if they put their hands on them, my girls will flatten them. my middle has already proved to the boys in her school not to touch her in any way shape or form. teachers didn't do anything about the teasing (she's 6 and she wear's size 13 pants and 4 in adult shoes.) she dealt with it until he pushed her down and stepped on her fingers. she kicked him a good one and until he says sorry, she's not saying it.

  • Not really, the best is to look at the situation as a whole and everyones role in- empower kids to stand up for themselves- show bullies what their behavior does to others-

  • i would never not camp out at the school until the school addressed the issue and kept my child safe from bullying and harassment. Parents are the advocates for their children, they should never look the other way if their child is being bullied.
