We need to stop the cynicism about bullying. Cynicism makes us distrust people but worse, it causes us to assume that they won’t change or can’t change. It’s a fatalist view.
It never ceases to amaze me how adults botch this. Retaliating against bullies isn’t ok and neither is ignoring them. How about we use science instead.
I’m 14 and I want to beat up and get revenge on my old bullies. Is that wrong?
If your kid is being bullied, learn what works to get it to stop and teach it to them. Don’t allow them to continue to suffer. Once you learn it – share this information and pass it on. Thanks and good luck.
