Yes, very true. I had a talk with my teenage daughter and asked her what she would do if she was in a drastic situation with bullying. She said she would tell me. That is the right answer, but for some kids, it isn't. I was bullied and when I told my parents, they said 'let it lie.' or 'just stay out of their way'. They didn't want to be bothered with it and have confrontations with the school and/or the other parents. When my girl was bullied in primary school, there were two girls who stepped all over the other kids. The school didn't do anything, so I talked to the parents. One dad was 'oh, really? we will be having a chat when I get home'. She never had a problem with that girl again. The other kid, her mom was like 'oh, not my girl, she wouldn't do that'. SURE she wouldn't. She was the most hated girl in the school. Parents, your children are not all little angels. I told my daughter if I ever caught her bullying someone, she would be punished. But, because she has been there, she stands up for the bullied child. Maybe some parents out there need to be parents. Interact with your child, KNOW your child. Maybe if we started at home, there would be a lot less bullying in school.
