We're not doing enough.
We're right on track and taking appropriate measures.
We're blowing it way out of proportion.

And when they are down, start working on the teeth. Trust me, very empowering once you do it for the first time.
My son has been bullied because he 's so thin, my daughter has been because she had back surgery and has a 1/2" scar down her back that runs from her neck clear to the top of her rear end.
They both have had difficult times with it, but it's taught both of them that there are rotten people in the world, and that no matter what they do or say, there will be those that are so miserable, they pick on what they see as the "weaker" in the group to make themselves feel better.
Bullies are to be pitied. I'm a firm believer in karma....and as we all know, karma is a bitch.
Fool me once, shame on you.
Fool me twice....shame on me.
Well, it's certainly wrong to just discard it claiming "kids will be kids". That's belitteling the issue. Most of that behavior dismissed in this manner would be considered serious criminal offenses when adults do it. And children should be taught soon enough that this is the case.
"Not learning from mistakes is worse than committing mistakes. When you don't allow yourself to make mistakes, it is hard to be tolerant of others and it does not allow even God to be merciful."
