A very sad post on the main page got me thinking about bullying and the effects it has on our kids. How do you handle your kids being bullied or your kids bullying others? Bullying is an epidemic at our local elementary. The staff seems to treat it like the hunger games. I caught a group of boys bullying another group when my kids were playing. I didn't handle it well, I'm afraid. I told the ringleader that I'D beat the snot out of him if I caught him again then sought out all their moms and told them what their kids were up to. That kid runs every time he sees me. Oops.
