Let’s talk bullying and how it impacts our lives and the lives of those we love

Today’s topic is bullying.

With the news coming in yesterday about another school shooting, bullying is thrust into the limelight once again.  While I don’t know if bullying was the reason this child brought a gun to school and went on a rampage, it’s certainly a possibility. 

Bullying is something that unfortunately, impacts the lives of many kids, Special Needs or not.

What I want to discuss today is how bullying has impacted your family and what you have done about it… When you find out your child is being victimized by a bully, what is the first thing you do? How are you supposed to react to this type of situation, as a parent?

On the table for today in the topic of bullying and anything and everything that has anything to do with it.

Through my personal experiences, I could write a book about the long-term effects of bullying. I’m 37 and what I endured as the class “weirdo” and outcast has definitely given me some form of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. There is not a day that goes by that I don’t dwell on what was done to me in grammar school and high school and have episodes of murderous rage, emptiness, and worthlessness. Tragically, I never got a break when I was young; my father would pull a lot of the same crap on me that the kids at school did. He wasn’t a real father like you are, Rob; he was much more like a nasty, sarcastic older brother. He even stole my 14 year old girlfriend from me! I know that I would have turned out a hell of a lot better if someone like you had been my father.

Re: Bullying, one thing I will say is that one time my son was being bullied (for the way he talks) and i approached the parent and got so badly bullied I have never quite felt the same since. Bullies beget bullies.
