I never have met a child or remember a child from the my past that met the definition of bully the way they depict them in the movie. One child in our neighborhood is very much "on the mean side." He likes my son, and tries to get my son to be mean to some of the other kids in the neighborhood. Before he liked my son he actually picked on him. At first it was horrible, but my son learned to stand up for himself. Now he stands up for the other kids when his friend starts to pick on them. It is most important that parents/ teachers/ or the children themselves set the boundries of what behavior will absolutely not be tolerated. If you can not do something because you are not at school with your child, then go to the principle at school immediately. Make some noise! At least make sure the bully is on the teacher and principle's radar!
