Completely agree with both David. Bullying will affect us only if we let it.
Bullies bully us to get a reaction, if we just ignore them, they will feel frustrated.
I agree I. Theory. The problem is many kids do not have the skill sets or their pysche is developing and simply need help. I do what I can to prepare them. I am proud that my son, who experiences bullying has made up his mind to stand up and say it is wrong. He also understands that he should stand up for those that are weaker and cannot. Bully is a learned thing. So is anti bullying. We need to teach our kids how to deal with it.
