I don't think my kid could be a bully she's so sweet right now but she is only 2. But if she ended up being a bully I would have to get strict with her and take away all her privilages til she softens up.
Do you fear of your child being a bully? What would you do if they were?

I don't fear it. I have known what I was going to do long before I had a child. If my son is a bully I will take him to a therapist for some play therapy sessions and have the thrapist assist in the changes needed. From education to understanding the reasons why he feels the need to bully. At home his contact with friends will be limited and then monitored when he does have contact with friends. Activities limited and school reports daily - including related arts teachers. I plan to volunteer at his school but of course I will be more of a presence and available. Of course the education starts now with my being compassionate and fair to him. Not bulling him now is being a good role model. A lot of parents don't realize thier behavior has bully like qualities but call it "parenting." But of course a bully today is a rapist/batterer...someone who feels it is okay to sexually assault someone tomorrow.
