  • We've had a LOT of problems with that of late down here in South Florida. One group tried to burn a kid to death about 7 months ago, another (dead) stabbed etc. Nasty! I remember when I was in school. "I'm gonna kill you after school" meant "Gonna kick your butt!" Sad....

  • And I am proud of you Kelly, with remembrance day around the corner I hope you hear more of how ppl are proud of you, and Thank You for your service ! !
  • Eve,

    What is so scary now a days with "bullying" is that it use to be once you were home, you were clear and safe. Now these guys are in their cell phones, their internet etc. I don't have kids, but when I hear on the news of some kid committing suicide due to being harassed on all fronts, so sad. :(

  • Eve, you know you don't need to do that! But thank you, from myself and all others who serve for the acknowledgment.

    You're right Brenda, it is so scary, there's no haven anymore for kids, or adults for that matter!

  • Adults, nodding. Bullying in the work place. Almost forgot about that! Before I retired we had one "Bully" supervisor. He tried that crap with me, but I was senior (same grade though), and I put him in his "equal" place in front of everyone. He never tried that crap with me again, but man-o-man did he get on certain subordinates!

    What I remember as a kid about bullies? Many times their parents are just as bad! Or you get the total opposite where they are the bullied one at home, and at school they take it out on other kids!

  • We grew up in farm country. Our elementary school was a country school, with a total of maybe 100 students, on a good year, from kindergarten to Gr 8. The one bully I had, lived on the farm around the corner from us, and is now my brother-in-law! ROFL But seriously, he wasn't that bad, pushed me and my best friend around a little, would trip us, and tore the heads off our barbie dolls, and always told us to f off. Well, one day, my sister and the boy who lived right beside us were teasing me, so I told the neighbour boy to "f off" as I had been told the day before by my now BIL. I had no idea what it meant, I was only about 8, and they were about 11. Anyways, that night at the dinner table my sister told on me, I got in trouble, she didn't for teasing me in the first place, and our neighbour didn't come back to our house again til he and my sister were seniors in high school, and his parents were away so my mom invited him! lol... Anyways, I'm pretty sure my BIL feels badly about the way he treated us back then, as the story inevitably comes up when our two families get together (our parents still live there, and my sister bought the house on the corner in between them!) and he always looks embarrassed and a little ashamed. Maybe having kids of his own now has helped with that.

    Sadly, some adults don't learn that lesson when they have kids, and you're right, the bullying just continues on at home for them.
