  • As a teacher most schools take a hard stance on bullying. My school just recently had a case of bullying which we are still resolving right now but it looks like the one bullying will not be returning to our school

  • I have not had to personally deal with bully-ing and do not have kids of my own yet. But I know how big of a problem this is becoming and makes me happy in some ways that my nieces and nephews are being home school. Its sad that it has become such a problem.

  • Nearly all of my elementary years were just fraught with bullying. I was pushed down stairs, intimidated, hit, had tacks stuck to me, my head bashed into a brick wall. Sadly, nothing was ever done and I was advised to “avoid them” (pretty hard when they are in your class) and to ignore them. At one point my father was so annoyed he threatened to put the bully into a room with me and to let us knock it out. Great.

  • No I have never been bullied in my day at school it was different, but my grand son bless his 10 year old heart when he saw a friend getting bullied he stop it and the bully got in trouble but not my grand son because he was helping the other kid. Now the child is fine and in his class there is no more bulling

  • I was never bullied as a child, but I did see it happening and I have to be honest I never did anything.

  • For myself school was a nightmare with the bullying. My son was also bullied but not after I changed him to another school.

  • bullying is so sad, especially when you see the kids committing sucide from being bullied. My son is ten and evryday when he gets home from school, I ask him if he has been picked on or seen it that day.

  • I think everyone has dealt with at some time or another although I see much less of it with my kids at school. It is still there but better. We are teaching the next generation and we should keep plugging away. Their kids will hopefully be even better.

  • I’ve never knew of anyone personally, but I had a friend who knew a kid who was bullied. Sadly it wasn’t resolved, the kid committed suicide.

  • I was never bullied – I have never seen it either. I volunteered as a art teacher for many years.

  • I was bullied in the fourth grade by a very athletic girl named Katie. I came in as a new kid after the school year was already underway. She constantly taunted me and threatened to “get me” after school. It made my fourth grade experience so bad, I left my Mom’s house and went to live with my Dad in another town. Years later my daughter was bullied in a MUCH SCARIER way. She was in her freshman year of high school and three girls were threatening to beat her up. They repeatedly sent others with messages to her, to “watch her back”. I was beside myself. I worked out of town and worried if something were to happen, I couldn’t get to her fast enough. She wore braces and I just pictured her with her mouth all cut up and bloody. Sounds crazy? It was! These girls were of a gang and were well known to bully a lot of other girls. The school officials told me none of the other cases ended well. It was then that I really got frightened and felt the strength of their threats.

  • When I went to school in the ’60’s and ’70’s, there were no problems with bullying. Children were brought up better in those days.

  • I was a victim of bullying as a kid, so much so that it still affects me as an adult. I suffer from severe social anxiety issues because of it. I went through years of therapy. I was picked on because of a large scar on my face where I had had a large skin graft done as a baby. Kids harassed me and threw rocks at me as I walked home from school. I got in a lot of fights sticking up for myself. My parents even offered to get me plastic surgery, but I was afraid it would turn out even worse. They put me in a really small private school, which did help a little. I think the name calling was what hurt the most. Balloon face, Al Pacino, T1000, Burn face, but I think the worst one that still stings a little is Scarface, because I heard it the most, even in high school. Lucky for me, it stopped in high school for the most part, when I learned to manage my unruly hair and tame it to cover my scar, which was starting to become more of the color of the rest of my skin at that point. There were a couple of jerks who I still heard referring to me as scarface even after high school. These were the SAME kids that picked on me in elementary school and middle school. I did hear one of them call me T1000 at a party, just after we graduated high school, and I punched him right in his face. I know that that isn’t the answer, but I can’t even put into words how good it felt.

  • I haven’t, personally, but I watched the documentary BULLY the other day, and it made me cry….so sad.

  • I had a bully in grammar school. Luckily, my mother is tough, she confronted the bully and he finally stopped bothering me.

  • I’ve dealt with bullying a lot in my life, going to private school was really hard for someone who wasn’t rich like the other kids and didn’t fit in. Rather than let it control my life and make me fearful, I went the opposite way and was lucky to have a great support structure at home. It made me stronger. Now I feel its up to me to help those that don’t have that same support or strength alone.

  • My son was bullied in the 4th grade so bad I pulled him out of school a month before school was to end and home schooled him. The school refused to do anything because they felt the parents wouldn’t do anything so what is the point- plus they didn’t want to loose the money they get for each child- they should have thought more about that because I pulled both my kids and so they lost money on 2 instead of 1.

  • I got bullied some when I was younger. The best way I had to deal with it was to fight back.

  • In high school, a girl decided to beat me up. I decided not to raise my raise my hands. I made no move. She hit me a couple times and gave up. I was not worth her time.

  • I’ve never had to deal with it before, and my daughter isn’t school aged yet.

  • I have worked with kids for at least 10 years, and I have seen the effects of both sides of bullying. Unfortunately, the person who is doing the bullying is doing it for attention and has an underlying issue that needs dealt with. I have learned that kids who do the bullying need to know you are there for them, and will help them in anyway that you can. Just having someone to talk to makes a huge difference.

  • I’ve been bullied, mostly over my weight and reclusive manner. Although I was quiet, the few times I acted out against a bully, it caused others to back off. Just because someone is quiet doesn’t mean they’re weak.

  • I never had a problem with bullying in school but my younger brothers have been bullyed constantly. The problem is schools say they have a zero bullying policy but they have never done anything to help stop it in my brother’s school.

  • My son dealt with bullying in middle school. He was overweight ( we found out later he had Metabolic Syndrome, which led to Juvenile Diabetes) and it was horrific. He is the most caring person I know and has dedicated his life, as a paramedic, to helping others.
