I’ve discussed bullying on ChapterTK as it’s an issue near and dear to my heart. The average days of my middle school years were horrifying. I remember my parents telling me to just ignore the bullies. They wanted a rise out of me and if I didn’t give that to them, they’d leave me alone. I will never tell any children I might have that same thing. In my experience, bullies will only try harsher and crueller acts until they find the one you can’t ignore. Yet, I worry this discussion on bullying has become overused. People reject so much of it as kids being kids. When is bullying serious and when isn’t it? Is it possible we are too sensitive about bullying these days?
