Thank you Nancy for this article. As a child I was very shy and was bullied by a group of girls. They said horrible things and once said that they would kill me if I came back to school. I thank God that it helped to make me a stronger person as I got older. It also made me aware that there are cruel children out there, who typically grow up to be cruel adults. It's a very sad situation when a child takes thier own life because of bullying.

Bullying should be stopped, whether the bullies are children or adults.

THOSE who are bullied need to speak out...TO THE RIGHT people. Make a note of it, and report it. THESE bullies grow up to be bullies who are infact abusers. So now we have to fight this on Care2, because the world is full of bullies.. those who wish to destroy the voiceless. They should not be allowed to get away with it.

I think BULLIES find insecure people to push around. Always give the impression that you are in control,even if you aren't. ACT that way. People can be fooled. Don't walk around with your head down. Keep it up & look people in the eye.

My local high school has had 5 kids who seperatetly committed suicide just this year due to repeated bullying incidents and continued situations. This has become a problem of epic proportions across the US and I am glad to hear that laws are being passed to try to bring it to an end. Now, if the Governor of my state would just stop bullying his constituents, we'd be almost home free...

The parents are not doing their jobs on both sides. Humans obviously have to be trained to be good it seems we are just a mean bunch!
You have to defend yourself after all you really are all you 've got.

Thank you Nancy, for this important post. I don't have kids, but I remember well how cruel young people can be to each other.

THIS IS A GREAT POST. PARENTS NEED TO BE MORE INVOLVED WITH THEIR CHILDREN. THEY SHOULD KNOW WHAT'S GOING ON IN THEIR LIVES. I PERSONALLY KNOW OF SEVERAL TEENAGERS THAT HAVE COMMITTED SUICIDE AND IT IS HARD TO DEAL WITH. IT'S BAD ENOUGH WHEN YOU LOSE A CHILD IN A WRECK DUE TO A DRUNK DRIVER. TEENAGERS SHOULD BE ENJOYING THIS TIME IN THEIR LIVES BECAUSE THINGS CHANGE GREATLY WHEN YOU GRADUATE AND HAVE TO MAKE A LIVING AND BE INDEPENDENT.

This is a very informative article. As I work in a Middle School (7th/8th graders), it is very important to discuss this subject. In fact, this year, ALL of the students were provided a class on this particular subject. Our staff is ever vigilant as a team in preventing this on our campus. Just as tobacco is forbidden with a zero tolerance on campus, this is also not tolerated. Anywhere.

I went through some hard times when 2 boys at my school started inciting another girl to hit me for no reason, just for their lack of brains. I had to walk home through different routes to avoid them & told one of the teachers who talked to the director. It's very sad that children have to go through more stress than they already have otherwise.

What I will never go with is that when a child has never done anything, by words, looks, pushing, anything, to aggravate a bully, and that bully starts swinging on them, because they seem easy prey, and then that child starts defending themselves by hitting back, that they can get into trouble for fighting too, for protecting themselves.

Good information. I was raised to stick up for myself if bullied. Parents never got involved & teachers were never called in. It wasn't always easy, but it seemed to work. Kids that let the bullying bother them noticeably seemed to be bullied more. But standing up against the bully seemed to grant you more respect. Smart kids who came from the "right" side of the tracks were perceived as not being able to take care of themselves and were often targets. My younger sister went crying home and my parents had to send her to private school. I stood up to the violence forced on me and was never bothered again. I can't say that it would work for everyone, and I can't say it would work today. But it is worth a try in some cases. It is natural in the animal kingdom. This is how your place in society is established. Thank chickens for the expression, "Pecking Order".

Too bad kids of these days have not yet learned compassion and respect. But then, maybe that's something that adults everywhere should be "pushing". No one wants to get involved, scared of retaliation by the kids. How sad...

I know not all parents can afford Karate for their children. But is a useful defense if one can. I think more Karate teachers should have a lower pay scale for those who would like to join, but can't afford to.
My daughter was seven, when a bully of the class decided to shove her around in line one day. She never let anyone know she was in Karate, as it wasn't something you brag about. This bully had made his rounds, but when he did this to her, she turned around and said, "Don't mess with me." He took a swing at her, but she sidestepped it, blocked his swing, gave him a couple of punches, grabbed him up by the collar, and said, "I told you not to mess with me." The teacher saw the whole thing, but turned her head as if she hadn't. And she was always a little mite, shortest one in the class. When she got home, she was afraid that she might still be in trouble in school. I asked her the circumstances, and told her that she would not be, because by her teacher ignoring it, she understood that this boy finally got what was coming to him. Not that it sould have EVER been ignored with the other children, but in this case, the teacher did the right thing. He never messed with her again.
