I can remember kids saying mean things when I was younger. I was empowered by standing up for myself. I believe adversity builds power. Fortunately, the bullying behavior only hurt my feelings, and luckily I was never physically hurt. I did became a stronger person by handling those situations. Now as an adult, and to be proactive, myself and my family now practice karate. Karate has given us amazing confidence, strength and discipline. I highly recommend karate to the young and “old” alike! I, of course, have taught my children to never bully but also to always intervene when they see bullying. To me, to watch and say or do nothing, is just as wrong as doing the bullying….When you do stand up to a bully and defend the victim, it makes you feel good. I always say “Be the bigger person and defend the ‘underdog’.” I appreciate the work you are doing and hope for the best for you, your family, and your organization.
Yes! My daughter was bullied by her friends. They call it relational bullying. It was awful. She was excluded and teased by a group of girls constantly. The school did nothing. They didnt understand the difference between conflict and bullying. We are still trying to get help.
