  • My daughter bullies her cousin. They are only 3 months apart in age (20 months and 23 months old) She is the younger of the two. I dont know what it is but I was never a bully in school. Her daddy though was a 'bad boy' in school but never spoke of any bullying on his part. Its weird how they can act so different from how their parents act!

  • None of my kids are bullies... My oldest son was bullied, I think it was more like terrorized, for many years in school. It didn't end until his sophomore year. I almost pulled him out of middle school because it got so bad. I remember being pushed around in my early years in high school by the older mean girls. I'm only 5' now, so I was much smaller in school. I did explain to him why kids do it....

  • I wasn't really a bully in high school but I was more protective of those who were picked on. I had no problem defending a kid that was getting picked on. I think I got that way because I was bullied in earlier years in a different school district. I take bullying so seriously that I plan doing alot of volunteering in my son's classroom and on the playground. my first daughter was harrassed all through school because of her Asperger's and I wish I could have done more for her. now my son has delays and I am going to be a huge part of his schooling with hopes that will curb any bullying. .

  • I wasn't a bully, or bullied. Hubby was sortof a bully. But he also beat up other bullies. Our kids get bullied though. And I don't stand for it. I have to watch myself, or I will go and bully them, which will get me in trouble. These kids are just NOW in jr high. Except for my daughter, she's going into 3rd grade. I can't stand the thought of my kids being bullied. Any kids, really.

  • I was both. I got bullied alot when I was in grade school up until I was a freshmen in Highschool. There was a lot going on at home, & everyone knew it & picked on me about it. & then One day I started standing up for myself, which of course got me called a bully.

    Im hoping that I can teach John not to mean to others, becuase of the clothes they were, or whatever, & that he can stand of for his self.
