The Bully

From about 4th – 8th grade, I was bullied extensively. I moved to a new town and didn’t quite fit in. Those years were hard and did a number on my self-esteem. At the same time though, I feel that those years molded me into a strong and empathetic person. I do know that for some children, that isn’t always the case.

Have you had experience with bullying? Have your children been dealing with bullies? Have one of your kids bullied their younger sibling? Over at 5 Minutes for Parenting, DeeDee is sharing her own experiences with bullying and asking for your insight as well.

We’d love for you to head on over and tell us your thoughts.

    Erica, I am so sorry that you were bullied. I can’t even imagine how hard that would be.

    I get very passionate and angry about the issue of bullying. I believe it is so serious and we all need to educate ourselves and help our children through it.

    It’s a great post over at 5 Minutes for Parenting and I’m looking forward to following the discussion over there.
