Moms Talk: School Bullies

Is bullying in schools a growing problem?

What was once thought of as a part of growing up, is now becoming a much more serious issue within our schools. Some people wonder if bullying is pushing kids into drugs, and even suicide.

Is bullying getting more intense? Is the new wave of social media to blame? Are parents responsible?

What's your opinion, and better yet, what are good ways to prevent bullying from our own children, as well as teach them how to deal with it?

ITs funny, when college begins, the teasing stops. Suddenly, living in adorm with thousands of other kids, everyones accepted. Gay, Straight, Black, White, Asian, Big, Small, One Arm, SHaved HEad, whatever. All of a sudden we are interacting on a level of intellect, and the bullying seems as if it cease to exist at all.

As I typed my last entry, I remember the one bully from college. His name was Phil. HE bullied almosty everyone of his own friends until he none left to speak of. He failed out of college twice, and I belive today his in jail. Kinda proves all my points nicely.

Thank you all for the conversation. We will be discussing other issues next Wednesday at 1 pm. I apologize as always, I type way to fast, and forget to spell check my words. I'm always so embaressed when I read back through and I sound so uneducated. I apologize.
