I was a victim of bullies... I was beat up daily, run over with/hit with My own bicycle, spit on, kicked, etc..... for no good reason other than We moved around alot and I seemed to always be the "New Kid" and the "small kid"... It wasn't until the summer between Jhs and HS that I sprouted... I grew a good 6" and put on 40 lbs..... I went back to school and "bullied the bullies"..... They stopped picking on alot of other kids real damned quick.... That is why I became a bodyguard.... and was one for 28yrs
Schools need to do something about this... They say that there is a "Zero tolerence" policy... but that is usually bullshit as they will just say They "we're not aware" of any problems....
My son was Bullied in school and the Principal was not doing much about it.. the other parent thought it was ok because His son was "smaller".... When I threatened to sort the Father out... He sorted His son out quick.
Something HAS TO BE DONE
