I've heard it a thousand times. Don't let boys do girly things, don't let girls do boyish things, don't let them be quirky, or unusual or too different. They'll get bullied.


Or how about you teach YOUR kid not to bully people who are different? Seems the better solution to me, but apparently it's assinine.

I agree

I teach my DS that not everyone has to be his friend, and he doesn't have to like everyone, but he can't be mean to them

It seems like kids will be bullied for anything under the sun on CM.

I think we need to make our kids strong enough to stand any stupid shit other kids may come up with....BUT also to respects others...AND also to behave properly in society. and wear appropiate clothing.

Because it's more fun to victim blame I guess.

Bullies are bullies. Anything can provoke them. It really doesn't matter what another person does in most cases. It's really sad.
