Does anyone else feel like calling a child a bully is wrong? We are told not to call our kids brats and other names, teach our kids not to call names etc.
I have been harrassed severly in school, so I know what it's like. They grew up to be unhappy, insecure, adults.
Instead of beating down a child with a bullying issue(not saying consequences aren't a neccessity) wouldn't getting to the core of the issue end it for good?
Teaching them how to get along?
These kids are our future society!
Setting an Example as adults and how we treat others?
Learning how to share feelings appropriately?
Why it's important.

Those are all great ideas. I have just recently partially realized why there may be more "bully" children today then in the past. There is a major lack of common courtesy today. I have really noticed this since my Son started Preschool. Most Moms & Dads are very stand-offish, cold, un-courteous and just down right unpleasant. I am no social butterfly but I try to be extra pleasant at Preschool and when I say hello I usually get an obnoxious smirk and a glance away. I have even recently went on the school field trip and some Mothers were Texting the entire time!!! What is so utterly important that it cannot wait?? What did we all do without cell phones or texting??? Did the world end?? How can you teach a child right & wrong if you cannot stop being SOOOO preoccupied with yourself?? I think Parents need to be re-taught manners today first so they can raise respectful children.
