Our school has a strict no bullying policy ..we have to sign something in the beginning of each year ...both the parents and the kids have to sign. 2 years ago some brat (and no I don't feel bad calling him a brat) threatened my daughter with a blood bath. (he said he wanted to slice her throat with a knife) How many 7 year olds do you know that talk like that? I found out it was an ongoing issue from the time he started Kindergarten and he had half ass parents. Any way, because of his threat the school police were called and he was expelled from school because of that and other things he had done (grabbing girls privates, vicious name calling). That kid has serious issues ..whether it be the crappy parenting, stuff he's seen at home, or whatever ..but no teacher was able to help him and he shouldn't be in the school!

We are struggling with this at our school. It 's not out of hand, but it does happen. We have a strict policy about it, but unfortunately the "good" kid gets punished as well if he/she defends themselves. You are supposed to report the bully as soon as an incident occurs - if it gets physical and the victim defends him/herself, they are suspended or paddled as well. The main problems, IMHO, is that kids are afraid to report bullies - afraid that they will get picked on or that it will make the situation worse. It is our responsibility as parents to make sure our kids know to report any type of that behavior to a trusted teacher, or at least to tell you about it. I haven't faced it with my own child, except on a very small verbal level, but have seen it in action in my class. I think the punishment should be severe and not waiver, regardless of who the parents are. I can't stand a bully - it literally makes me sick!
